Did you know that tooth decay and gum disease are caused by dental plaque? This sticky film gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugars in your diet. Left to accumulate, the bacteria in plaque eat away at tooth enamel, forming small holes in your teeth, which are more commonly known as cavities. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it infects and inflames the soft tissue and bone structure supporting the teeth, leading to periodontal disease. By brushing, flossing, limiting your intake of sugary food or beverages and visiting our High Point dental office for periodic exams and teeth cleanings, you can help protect your smile against the detrimental effects of plaque. During a professional cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We also discuss how you can brush and floss more effectively between visits. For our youngest patients, we strive to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health, and can provide dental sealants and fluoride treatments, for an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, our dentist will perform a comprehensive exam to assess the teeth, gums and the surrounding tissues, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of tooth decay, gums disease and other conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
