How often should I see my dentist?
My Dentist recommended a treatment plan that my insurance does not cover. Does that mean the treatment really isn’t necessary?
What should I do to prevent gum disease and tooth decay?
What is the difference between a regular cleaning and periodontal treatment?
Periodontal treatment and maintenance include cleaning the gums as well. There are many causes for gum disease, which causes your gums to recede or separate from your tooth. If there is a gap between the gum and the tooth, bacteria can get caught and cause damage to the tooth and gums. Periodontal treatment and maintenance are performed to remove bacteria from the area between the tooth and the gums.
