We’ve all noticed it. The sticky film which gathers in our mouths and coats the teeth when we haven’t brushed or flossed. Dental plaque is home to colonies of harmful bacteria, which produce acids capable of eroding the enamel of the teeth. The common result is the development of cavities. But in adults, dental plaque can also begin to cause serious trouble when it creeps beneath the gumline. As it collects and hardens into tartar, the immune system causes an inflammatory response, which compromises the health of the tissues surrounding the teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can result in the significant loss of the soft and hard tissues supporting the teeth and eventually the teeth themselves. As serious as this scenario sounds, dental disease needn’t be an issue for you and the ones you love. With a consistent brushing and flossing regimen at home, and by scheduling semi-annual checkups at our East Village dental office, together we can effectively prevent cavities and gum disease.
When you visit our East Village dental office for your checkup, we’ll carefully examine your teeth, gums and jaw, checking for a sweeping array of dental issues. We’ll also have the opportunity to assess your oral care regimen at home, and can provide personalized instruction to improve your technique as needed. During your checkup, you’ll also receive a professional teeth cleaning, so that any plaque buildup can be expertly removed from difficult to reach areas of the mouth.
In a recent statement from the ADA, combining a proper oral care regimen at home with semi-annual checkups to your dentist can almost entirely prevent the onset of dental disease! To schedule your next checkup at our office, call LES Dental Group today!
