At Five Star Dental FC, we believe that providing top-notch preventive dentistry solutions and ongoing pateint education are key to maintaining a great-looking smile. As such, today we want to talk about dental plaque. This is a sticky substance that results from oral bacteria. Plaque can turn your teeth dark and can also lead to tooth decay and gum disease if it is not properly handled by a dental professional.
Don’t get us wrong, you have a part to play too, every day at home. Building on that hard work, we will take your protection further when you are here every 6 months for your checkup. Through these teeth cleanings and exams, we will be able to get rid of any plaque that remains on your teeth in order to optimize your oral health.
During these appointments, we will also use advanced technology like digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to help identify any problems before they become more serious (and expensive) to treat.
