Plaque is a white, sticky film that is very dangerous for the smile, especially because it promotes tooth decay and gum disease. So, it’s best to keep plaque at bay and prevent buildup at all costs. To help you do so, our dentist, Dr. Mark Miller, encourages you to do the following things regularly:
-Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. (It’s preferred to brush every morning and night)
-Floss your teeth once a day. (You can use any flossing product you desire)
-Rinse your mouth daily. (Using antibacterial mouthwash kills the bacteria in the mouth)
-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. (This type of toothbrush cleans the teeth and cares for the gums)
-Use oral hygiene tools that have been approved by the ADA (American Dental Association). (This Seal of Approval proves that the tools are safe and effective while cleaning your teeth and gums)
-Visit our office every six months for a routine dental cleaning. (The cleaning treatment is vital to remove hardened plaque from your teeth)
