Gingivitis Periodontal Disease naples dentist

Gingivitis and Periodontal disease are a result of an unhealthy mouth. The main cause of gingivitis and periodontal disease is the accumulation of plaque. Plaque is a sticky film of food and bacteria that forms constantly on your teeth. If all of the plaque is not removed each day, it builds up and mineralizes to form tartar, also known as calculus. Once the tartar is formed, it is not removable with home care. The Naples dentist at Torrens Dental Care offers periodontal car that can remove it. If it is not removed, it begins to accumulate on the root surfaces. Bacteria that cause periodontal disease will thrive in tartar where it begins to produce toxins. It is these toxins, combined with your body's response to them, which destroys bone and tissue around your teeth. Dr Torrens and the dental hygienist, as a dental team, can perform a comprehensive oral examination to determine if you have periodontal disease. In office therapies for your condition can be performed along with helping you create a suitable at-home oral health care regime.
