Some patients may notice that their teeth look brighter following a scale and polish but their teeth will not be whiter. Teeth whitening is a separate treatment available following a dental cleaning and when all basic dental care has been completed.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease or periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss and is present in the 90% of the population to some degree.  Gum disease occurs when bacteria on the teeth and gums cause a deterioration of the gum tissues and supporting structures of the teeth. The teeth attach to the bone by fibers known as the periodontal ligament which is protected by the gum. Severe gum disease can destroy your gums and periodontal ligament leading to mobile teeth which are often lost. When plaque builds up around the teeth, hard deposits known as tartar can cause inflammation and bleeding of the gum tissues. The gums become looser around the teeth, allowing plaque, tartar and bacterial to build up beneath the gums to form pockets which attack the periodontal ligament and bone which supports the tooth. Gum disease is higher risk in patients who smoker or in patients diagnosed with Diabetes.
