Oral health is an important element of overall health. Teeth and gums are essential for eating, chewing, talking, etc. Moreover, a healthy smile contributes to a pleasing appearance and promotes self-esteem. Providing appropriate oral care helps to maintain dental and gum health as long as possible.
Plaque is an invisible film loaded with food and bacterial debris that builds up on your teeth every day. With time, plaque hardens and turns into tartar. Only a dentist can remove tartar during a professional cleaning. Plaque is the leading cause of cavities and gum disease like gingivitis. Brushing and flossing are two basic solutions to remove plaque and prevent tartar build-up.
A cavity forms following the combined action of several factors, including food, mouth acidity, tooth composition, heredity, and dental plaque. The bacteria present in plaque are mainly responsible for the appearance of cavities. When they go undetected and untreated, cavities can worsen and eventually cause symptoms and complications. A dental examination is the best way to detect cavities.
Gingivitis is a minor inflammation of the gums caused by plaque build-up. Signs of gingivitis may include bleeding gums when brushing or flossing, red or swollen gums, and bad breath. If gingivitis is not adequately treated, it can cause more serious problems. Certain antiseptic mouthwashes can prevent the appearance or progression of gingivitis.
