Dental care Palmdale CA
In order to effectively manage the potential effects of tooth decay and gum disease, you need to eliminate dental plaque to the greatest extent possible. At Palmdale Dental Group, we are committed to helping you do so with guidance regarding your diet and oral hygiene routine at home, along with twice-yearly visits to our office for our dental care in Palmdale CA
Dental plaque is a filmy bacteria that forms on and between your teeth. It is responsible for eroding your tooth enamel, causing cavities; it also irritates and reddens your gums, which are the signs of early stage gum disease (gingivitis). By eating nutritiously and limiting your consumption of sugar, you can mitigate the impact of plaque. You should also brush your teeth first thing in the morning, and last thing at night. And floss thoroughly, preferably before bedtime. Most of the plaque that has accumulated will be gotten rid of through that strategy. Some, though, hides out of reach, in your gum pockets. It will eventually turn into hardened tartar, making it nearly impossible to remove except with our dental care in Palmdale CA. This is a big reason why coming in every six months is so essential. Our general dentist will do an examination and take x-rays. If any cavities are detected, they can be filled while still small. Larger cavities put you at greater risk for needing root canal therapy or a tooth extraction. And just as important, a teeth cleaning will eradicate all the plaque and tartar that remain. It will also reverse gingivitis. It's the best way to reset your oral health and put the odds in your favor to maintain strong, healthy teeth and gums.
