The Dangers Of Plaque Build Up | The Dacula Dentist

Plaque can be so stubborn, especially in those hard to reach areas, in particular the back teeth. All those handy grooves and ridges that make the back teeth perfect for chewing food also makes them hard to clean. As food particles collect on them, the risk of plaque and bacteria build up greatly increases. Bacteria can convert fermenting sugars into plaque in as little as 30 minutes. Removing plaque buildup is very important to your dental health. If left unchecked, this buildup can lead to gum disease.

Proper and regular flossing is crucial to plaque removal and keeping your teeth and gums healthy. As they say, practice makes perfect. Even if you struggle at first, keep at it and it will get easier to floss those back teeth over time. If you still find it very difficult to floss your back teeth, ask your dentist to take some extra time to show you and practice with you. You may also want to invest in an ADA approved electric flosser.

Protect your teeth and gums with daily flossing, brushing and regular dental exams and cleanings. Feel free to contact us with any questions you have on keeping your teeth and gums healthy or to schedule an exam.
