The plaque between the teeth might have bigger consequences than you thought

Even after brushing and flossing your teeth, you can still feel those few spots you simply can't reach where plaque still coats your teeth. While you ignore this plaque and assume there's nothing you can do about it, it will accumulate and may even spread beneath your gums. Once this has happened, you may find yourself in the early stages of gum disease and eventually you may even lose your teeth as a result. What is gum disease and what can you do to fight it?

What is gum disease?

Gum disease, also known as gingivitis and periodontitis, depending on how advanced it is, is a widespread problem among people in Acworth. Bacteria in your mouth form plaque on your teeth, and if this plaque is not removed, it will build up and creep between the teeth and under the gums leading to cavities and gum disease. Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissues that shows itself as inflamed and often bleeding gums.

How are your dental hygiene habits?

The best way to fight gum disease is by making sure your teeth stay free of plaque. Even though you brush your teeth at home, when was the last time you really thought about the way you care for your teeth? Revising your dental hygiene habits in the following ways might keep your gums safe from disease.
  • Brush your teeth after meals for 2-3 minutes using circular motions. Don't bend the bristles of your toothbrush against your teeth
  • Floss between your teeth at least once a day by firmly pulling the floss between the teeth along the edge of each tooth from below the gum line up
  • Avoid snacking throughout the day as much as possible, as this leaves food particles on your teeth that can turn into plaque
  • Consider using an antibacterial mouthwash after brushing and flossing your teeth to kill any remaining bacteria
  • Visit your dentist every six months to have your teeth professionally cleaned to remove any plaque that you may have missed
If it's been a while since your last appointment, call our office near Acworth at (770) 423-1132 to make an appointment. Let our hygienist get the hard-to-reach spots between your teeth to prevent cavities and gum disease.

    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!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! 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.
