Check out Dr. Nawrocki’s latest dental vlog. In this dental vlog, Dr. Nawrocki of Dental Arts San Diego covers real tartar (calculus) accumulations in the mouth and outlines the necessity for deep cleaning in patients with implants as well as in patients with regular teeth.
Bacteria or calculus can accumulate overtime and cause dental complications. Tartar is mineralized proteins and salts mixed-in with bacteria. There are countless strains of bacteria in our bodies, some good and some can be fatal. Four terrible bacterial strains nclude Aggregatibactor Actinomycetemcomitans, Campylobactor Rectus, Porphyromonas Gingivalis, and Capnocytophaga Species. These particular strains can cause anything from chronic gum diseases or serve as a risk factor for certain cancers. If left untreated for a prolonged period of time, they can leak into the bloodstream and travel to the heart, causing inflammation and in worst case heart attacks.
Getting regular dental deep cleanings can help prevent and address build-up plaque or tartar. Keep your oral health and really your overall health in check with the help of Dental Arts!
