Hygiene and Gum Disease

Enhancing the Oral Health of Residents in and Around Humble

As a general and cosmetic dental practice, professional hygiene is one of the most important services we provide. By cleaning your teeth twice a year, we can remove plaque, stains, and bacteria, as well as prevent gum disease – the number one cause of tooth loss for adults! We have high standards for hygiene, and our team members are exceptionally well-trained to help you optimize your oral health, no matter the current condition of your teeth.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an infection of the gums that results when plaque and bacteria build up on the teeth. This infection has very minor symptoms in its early stages, so many patients may not notice a problem until it’s progressed to an advanced stage. Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Reddened, swollen, or tender gums
  • Gums that bleed while brushing
  • Bad breath or metallic-tasting mouth
  • Loose teeth or pockets between teeth
  • Changes in the way teeth fit together

As mentioned above, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss for adults in the U.S., but it has also been linked to more serious illnesses, such as diabetes and heart disease. At Humble Smiles, we take gum disease seriously, and we have an excellent hygiene program designed to control your symptoms and restore your oral health. With regular hygiene visits, we can help patients prevent or control gum disease, thereby allowing them to keep their natural teeth as long as possible.
