Adults over 35 lose more teeth to gum (periodontal) disease than from cavities. Three out of four adults are affected at some time in their life. The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by good tooth brushing and flossing techniques, performed daily and regular hygiene maintenance visits to your dentist office.
Periodontal disease and decay are both caused by bacterial plaque (biofilm). Plaque is a colorless film, which sticks to your teeth at the gum line. Plaque constantly forms on your teeth. By thorough daily brushing and flossing you can remove these germs and help prevent periodontal disease. Your dental hygienist will remove the plaque and/or calculus at your hygiene maintenance visits.
Daily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus to a minimum, but a professional hygiene maintenance visit will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. Your visit to Mountain Dental is an important part of your program to prevent gum disease. Keep your teeth for your lifetime.Dr. Dan Fisher, DDS
