Let's face it, one of the main reasons you may have to end up coming to see your San Ramon dentist for treatment? Plaque- and all it can do to the mouth. Plaque is a sticky, bacteria-filled film that can coat the teeth just mere minutes after finishing a meal. If plaque is not removed by regular brushing or flossing, the bacteria within it can feed off of the sugars you take in, leading to substantial oral health issues. Some of the issues include teeth decay, gum disease, tooth loss- amongst many more.
No one wants to really struggle with any of those issues brought on by plaque, so you should try to fight it the best you can, right? Absolutely! But, besides flossing and brushing daily, what else can be done to help prevent plaque from affecting your smile? Well, today your San Ramon dentist has provided a list of some of the best ways you can eliminate plaque from your life- and you can access that list by clicking here.
