21 Oct The importance of visiting your dentist in Southgate to prevent or treat tooth loss
Is it important to visit your dentist in Southgate on a regular basis to make sure that despite having an excellent dental hygiene routine at home, you do not allow plaque and tartar to build up on the surface of your teeth. Plaque and tartar are the main causes of most dental diseases. If plaque and tartar are not removed effectively they can cause gum infection, periodontal disease, cavities and tooth decay, and if these diseases are left untreated then they can result in tooth loss. Unfortunately most of these diseases begin as asymptomatic so you are unaware of the effect it may be having on your teeth and gums until the disease has progressed quite significantly and is causing major warning signs such as bleeding gums, sensitivity and toothache. Such symptoms should never be ignored and it is important that you consult your dentist in Southgate as soon as possible to prevent further complications in the future.
