Living in your mouth right now is a sticky film that accumulates continuously and harbors bacteria that feed on sugar. This mass of bacteria, known as plaque, is the leading cause of common oral health conditions, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Combatting the detrimental effects of plaque begins at home with a strong commitment to oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth, and maintaining a diet that is low in sugary foods helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It is also necessary to visit your Greenville dental office for a professional teeth cleaning. During a teeth cleaning, your dentist can remove plaque and tartar that have accumulated in difficult to reach spots that are too difficult for your toothbrush to handle. Cavities can occur at any age, however, lifestyle and dietary habits makes children most susceptible to tooth decay. For our pediatric patients, we recommend fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. As part of your or your child’s checkup, your dentist will also perform a clinical examination, and use diagnostic films, as needed, to identify oral health conditions in their initial stages, allowing for the most effective, straightforward course of treatment.
