What do you know about dental plaque? Here’s a fun fact: this sticky substance results from oral bacteria. It can turn your teeth dark and can also lead to cavities and gum disease, which can eventually cause your teeth to loosen up and fall out.

Fortunately, you won’t be at risk for any of that if you are coming in to see us every six months for your regular teeth cleanings and exams. Whenever you are here, we will be able to see if anything seems amiss in your mouth and we will be able to gently remove any plaque that is lingering on your teeth and gums.
