Professional Teeth Cleaning in New Westminster
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gum tissue. This happens when bacteria increases in mass to form a paste-like substance called plaque. Accumulation of plaque and tartar covering the teeth are the beginning stages of periodontal diseases. Tartar is long standing plaque that has absorbed calcium on the tooth surface. Early detection and treatment are your best defense. The existence of bone destruction under the gums cannot be visually detected. This makes it especially important to visit your hygienist regularly.
