Is It Growing In Your Mouth?

Farmington orthodontics

Plaque is that filmy stuff that forms on teeth. Since it is caused by the breakdown of the foods we eat, plaque formation is a constant process. And that’s why we keep reminding our patients to brush and floss twice a day, at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Rio Rancho.

The plaque process goes something like this:

Bacteria naturally occurs in the mouth. It will try to colonize on the smooth surfaces of your teeth.

At first, it will be soft enough to be removed with a fingernail. After 48 hours, it will start to harden. Give it 10 days and it will turn into that substance most difficult to remove, tartar.

This bacteria feed on sugars and produce acid that will eat away the tissues of the tooth and lead to cavities. Cavities will originate on the surface and spread on and through the tooth.

Brushing and flossing twice a day is your best defense against plaque, but we also want to see you at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Rio Rancho for regular cleanings and checkups. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today!
