Plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth when you go too long without brushing. Dental plaque contains millions of bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque naturally develops in your mouth all the time and thrives by taking advantage of the food you eat. When you eat, the bacteria in plaque uses sugars in the food to produce acids that eat away at the tooth enamel. The same bacterial acids that destroy tooth enamel can also initiate an infection of your gum tissue.
Regular brushing and flossing may not be enough to get rid of built-up dental plaque if it’s settled into one of those hard-to-reach places that your toothbrush can’t reach. That’s why you should get regular exams and cleanings at your trusted Boca Raton best dentist office. Regular cleanings are the best way to prevent dental problems caused by the accumulation of plaque.
While dental decay and gum disease are the two most common conditions affecting dental health, they are also the most preventable. At every checkup visit to your Boca Raton best dentist, our team will carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any sign of dental disease or developing problems. And of course, every exam is accompanied by a thorough, professional teeth cleaning to remove any accumulated dental plaque or tartar
