Even with good daily oral hygiene, some plaque still remains in your mouth, and over time it can harden and become tartar (also known as calculus) which, if left in your mouth, causes periodontal disease.
Tartar can be removed only by a dentist or dental hygienist with a process called 'scaling’, in which either ultrasound vibrations or a manual tool called a scaler are used to remove tartar from the portion of your tooth that is below the gum line.
Since plaque and calculus love to grab onto rough surfaces of the tooth, once the built-up tartar has been removed from your tooth, the rough or irregular surfaces are smoothed away with a process called ‘’root planing’. This process is used to prevent periodontal disease, reverse any early signs of gum disease and to prevent any existing periodontal disease from spreading. If it’s been a while since you’ve been in to a dentist, you may need to have plaque removed from your teeth. Contact the Calgary downtown dentist for an appointment.
If you are missing one or more teeth or wear partial or full dentures, dental implants can be the perfect solution. An implant is a titanium screw that is placed in your jaw, where it functions like a tooth root and stimulates the bone and tissue to keep them from disintegrating. An abutment is fastened to the implanted screw; and an artificial tooth is attached to the abutment that protrudes from the gum. Once the artificial tooth is placed on the abutment, it looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
If you’re interested in learning more about dental implants, or wish to make an appointment to speak with the Calgary downtown dentist, please call 403-244-3844. You’ll be glad you called, and you’ll be on your way to a healthier smile.
