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.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
