It’s very important to consistently follow your oral hygiene regimen. A good oral hygiene regimen along with regular visits to our expert dentist, Eyal Waldman, DMD at our Brookhaven dentist office is a necessary part of getting rid of dental plaque; which is the leading cause of tooth decay and cavities.
Dental plaque is the underlying cause of the development of oral health problems that would require a trip to see your dentist at a Brookhaven dentist office like ours. Plaque a substance that you absolutely do not want to remain on your teeth. Dental plaque is very damaging to your oral health. It is a sticky film, filled with bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth. Dental plaque begins to develop when food particles mix together with the saliva inside your mouth. It is very important to brush your teeth well after every meal. Dental plaque can cause cavities when the when the acids from the plaque attack your teeth after eating. With multiple, repetitive acid attacks, the tooth enamel tends to break down which causes tooth decay and cavities to form. If it isn’t removed, it will irritate the gums which could lead to gum disease and unfortunately, it could eventually cause tooth loss. Plaque will build up in the mouth and will continue to build up unless it removed by brushing it away. If it’s not brushed away quickly enough, it will harden into tartar, which is an even worse dental problem. Fortunately, when you come to our quality dental office, our expert dentist, Eyal Waldman, DMD as well as our professional hygienist at the dentist office will help you to prevent these dental problems from happening. Our hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar with a professional cleaning and our dentist will give you an exam to ensure you’re in good oral health.
