Woodstock, GA dentist describes plaque

Patients who have purchased toothpaste may be familiar with specific information on the packaging referring to the removal of plaque. Many Woodstock, GA area patients who visit the dentist have questions about what plaque is and how it is affecting their smiles.

Plaque is a film that can develop on the teeth. It is typically a pale yellow in color and is caused by bacteria that attaches to the enamel. When left on the teeth, it can harden and become tartar, a more difficult type of film to remove from the surfaces of the teeth. Plaque and tartar are contributing factors to periodontal disease.

Brushing and flossing the teeth after every meal is the best way to remove plaque effectively. Removing plaque can keep it from turning into tartar, which is extremely problematic. A dental professional is the only one who can remove tartar once it has hardened, so for best oral health, patients should keep plaque at bay. This is often done by brushing with a fluoride toothpaste.

To avoid plaque formation, patients should only eat healthy foods and brush their teeth after every meal. This helps keep the teeth from becoming a victim of tartar. Patients can also visit their dentist for professional teeth cleanings during which plaque and tartar can be removed from all surfaces of the teeth and gums to help reduce the risk of periodontal disease and cavities.

Patients in the Woodstock, GA community who want to learn more about good oral health and avoiding the formation of plaque and tartar are welcome to contact 32 Dental. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley can help patients understand how plaque and tartar can negatively affect the smile and result in a lifetime of chronic oral problems such as periodontal disease, which can only be controlled and not cured once it develops. Our practice happily accepts new patients and work with individuals of all ages in enjoying better dental health for life!

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
