Learn More about Dental Plaque

Dental plaque is a colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth. This plaque contains acid-releasing bacteria which can break down the enamel of the teeth and cause cavities. If left un-removed, plaque hardens and turns into calculus, which can inflame the gum tissues and lead to periodontal disease.

In this video, the American Dental Association provides some handy advice for preventing the buildup of dental plaque. You can help reduce your chances of tooth decay and gum disease by brushing your teeth twice and flossing at least once per day, avoid eating in between meals, and having routine dental cleanings.

For more information on tooth decay, periodontal disease, or to set up a dental cleaning, contact Oak Creek Dental Care at (614) 882-5525. You can also visit us online to learn more about our sedation dentistry and emergency dentistry services.
