If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums remain healthy, you will want to keep your teeth as plaque-free as possible. At Family Care Dental Group, our West Ridge best dentist, just one of whom is Dr. Mark Mkrdichian, can provide you with dental exams, and you can receive dental cleanings, to ensure optimal dental health.
Dental plaque is continuously created in your mouth. However, with regular brushing and flossing, and professional dental cleanings, you will be able to keep dental plaque on your teeth to a minimum. Even with the very best at-home dental cleaning regimen, it is important that you come in to see our West Ridge best dentist, for periodic dental exams and dental cleanings, to make sure that your teeth and gums are remaining healthy. During a dental cleaning, all plaque and tartar will be removed not only from on your teeth, but from between the teeth and from just below the gum line as well. Some of these areas cannot be reached by you during your dental cleanings. Dental plaque can irritate the gums, and cause gingivitis. If our dentist finds during a regular dental exam that you have gingivitis, he will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. This will help to keep your teeth and gums healthy as well, and help to prevent gum disease from developing. Dental plaque can also causes dental cavities; materials in the dental plaque will combine with the carbs in your mouth, creating acids that will eat through your tooth enamel. So, keeping your teeth as plaque-free as possible will also help prevent dental cavities from developing.
