The health of your gums weighs heavily with the overall health of your teeth and can also affect your quality of life. Indeed gum disease problems can lead to tooth loss and long-term medical complications.

If the bacterial matter is not removed from your mouth by brushing twice each day and remembering to floss at least once, it increases the presence of plaque acids in your mouth and the buildup of hardened tartar.

As hardened tartar starts to accumulate at gumline it can easily promote the gum inflammation of gingivitis. This can cause your gums to bleed easily when brushing and flossing or cause chronic bad breath problems.

If gingivitis is caught early Dr. Zoya Yadgarov might be able to treat it at his dental office. This includes a comprehensive dental cleaning treatment designed to remove hardened tartar reducing the total bacterial exposure to your periodontal tissues.

You will then need to apply increased focus to maintaining a consistent and effective daily oral hygiene routine. This is the simplest way to help prevent further recurrence of gingivitis.
