Both tooth decay and gum disease are caused by the presence of plaque, which is a sticky film gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque not only produce acids that lead to cavities, when allowed to accumulate below the gum line, it infects and inflames the tissues supporting the teeth, causing periodontal disease. By brushing, flossing, limiting your intake of sugar and visiting our office for biannual professional teeth cleanings, you can protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque. During a teeth cleaning at our office, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach crevices of your mouth, and guides you as to how you can your daily oral hygiene regimen.
