Preventative Dental Care with Redwood Dental
At Redwood Dental, we believe the foundation of a stunning smile begins with healthy teeth and gums. Our comprehensive preventative dental care services aim to combat the challenges posed by bacteria, plaque, and other factors that jeopardize oral health.
Effective Plaque Removal: Brushing & Flossing
Brushing and flossing daily are the primary ways to keep plaque at bay.
Brushing: Ensure you brush twice a day using a soft-bristled brush and an antimicrobial toothpaste with fluoride. Techniques recommended by the American Dental Association include brushing at a 45-degree angle to the gums, employing short strokes, and cleaning all tooth surfaces.
Flossing: Essential for reaching areas between teeth where brushes can’t. Use about 18 inches of floss, ensuring you slide it between teeth and gums, and employ up-and-down motions for thorough cleaning.
Understanding Plaque and its Impact
Plaque is a sticky layer of material loaded with bacteria that forms on teeth. It’s responsible for causing cavities, gum irritation, and potentially leading to gum disease. When plaque isn’t removed, it can result in gums pulling away from the teeth, creating pockets filled with bacteria, leading to potential tooth loss.
Apart from sugary foods, plaque accumulates from starches such as bread, crackers, and cereal also contribute to acid formation by the bacteria in plaque.
