Gum Care

At Mapleridge Children and Adult Dentistry, we always welcome our patients to come by our office for our Liverpool dental treatment and care. A foundation for a healthy mouth starts with regular visits to the dentist and we’ll be more than glad to provide that for you!We want you to be fully aware of all the benefits that these dental visits can provide, which is why we’d like to go over what our dental treatment and gum treatment
can do for you.

Our Liverpool Dental Care

It’s recommended that you come in for dental treatment and care once every six months. During this regular appointment at our Liverpool office, our dental hygienist will perform a thorough teeth cleaning that includes:

  • The removal of any excess plaque from your teeth.
  • The removal of plaque from and areas of your mouth that your toothbrush or floss isn’t capable of reaching.
  • The elimination of bacteria that’s between your teeth, on your gums, and underneath your gum line.
  • A cleaning of your teeth and gums that will leave you with a bright and beautiful smile.

Gum Treatment

Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, we may recommend a more intensive type of dental and gum treatment, such as root planing or scaling. Root planing and scaling are deep cleanings where we’ll remove plaque and tartar from beneath a patient’s gum line. When we perform these deep cleanings, we’ll typically use a mild anesthetic so that we can ease any discomfort during the treatment.

Our Liverpool gum treatment is beneficial because it can help treat gum disease. Gum disease is caused by plaque, which is continually being formed on your teeth. If your teeth aren’t cleaned well, and plaque isn’t consistently removed, your gums can become inflamed and pull away from your teeth. Plaque can then get trapped in these pockets that can’t be removed with regular brushing. If this goes untreated, gum disease can occur and then eventually lead to bone and tooth loss.
