How Plaque Builds Up on Teeth (And Why That’s Bad)
What is plaque? Why does it build up on your teeth? How does it happen?
You’ve probably heard of plaque and have a vague idea that it’s not a good thing. Watch this short video from the ADA to learn how plaque forms on your teeth and how it leads to gum disease.
Then call our Hellertown, PA dental office today for your next appointment. A dental cleaning from one of our very skilled dental hygienists can remove plaque, tartar, and the harmful bacteria that lives there. If plaque has been building up for a while, our dentists are trained in a special deep-cleaning treatment called root planing and scaling. This, along with regular home oral care, can help your gums stay healthy.
