Plaque Removal

Plaque Removal

Plaque can cause a variety of oral health issues

Smiles at SummerHill Dental in Newmarket, Ontario provides plaque removal and prevention services

Plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth and contains millions of bacteria. Everyone develops plaque because bacteria is constantly growing in our mouths. If plaque is not removed it can lead to gum irritation, soreness, and redness. Sometimes, your gums may begin to bleed as a result of plaque. Sometimes, the bacteria can form pockets of disease around tooth structures, eventually destroying the bone beneath the tooth. It's easy to prevent plaque buildup with proper care.

Make sure to:

- Brush thoroughly at least twice a day to remove plaque from all surfaces of your teeth
- Floss daily to remove plaque from between your teeth and under your gumline, where your toothbrush may not reach
- Limit sugary or starchy foods, especially sticky snacks
- Schedule regular dental visits for professional cleanings and dental examinations
