If you are looking for a great dentist who will help you keep and maintain your healthy teeth and gums, you will need to look no further than Linda M. Weinfield DDS. Dr. Weinfield is fully trained in a great many aspects of dental care, so whether you need a teeth cleaning or a full mouth restoration Dr. Weinfield will be the 60454 dentist to see.
Dr. Weinfield, our 60454 dentist, wants all of her patients to have the healthiest gums and teeth possible. She knows that a healthy mouth begins with periodically scheduled professional dental cleanings. Even with the best of efforts, at-home teeth brushing and cleaning can only go so far in providing adequate dental cleaning. Even the best brushing and flossing techniques will leave some plaque and bacteria on the teeth. If bacteria is allowed to remain on the teeth for even a short amount of time, it will harden and become tartar. Tartar can only be removed by our 60454 dentist, using professional dental cleaning instruments. Even with the most vigorous brushings, tartar cannot be removed from teeth. And if left to remain on teeth, tartar will surely cause healthy gums to develop gum disease.
When tartar is left on the teeth, it works its way in between the teeth and the gums. It creates pockets between the teeth and gums, which then hold more plaque and bacteria. As the pockets become deeper, they cause gum disease. If this is allowed to continue, there is a real danger of the jaw bone becoming infected. If this occurs, the jaw bone will weaken and teeth may become loose and eventually fall out. All this can be avoided if you visit our 60454 dentist for regular checkups and professional cleanings. If necessary, our dentist will be able to perform root planing and scaling to make sure that all destructive plaque and tartar is removed from the pockets. This will allow the gums to begin to heal, as pockets heal and become smaller. Taking care of gums and teeth will most likely be able to restore your gums to good health, and prevent any tooth loss from gum disease.
