When you come in to see our Rockville MD dentist, you will either be seen by Dr. Schwartzman, Dr. Healy, or Dr. Offit. It is encouraged that patients have regular dental exams and dental cleanings to help keep their teeth healthy, and to keep them out free of dental plaque. Dental plaque is a material which is continuously created in the human mouth. There is no way to stop this creation of l plaque, but there are things you can do to protect your teeth and gums from the harmful effects of dental plaque. Dental plaque is a sticky and colorless film. It contains many microorganisms, some of which combine with the saliva and carbs in your mouth, and work to cause dental cavities. When dental plaque remains on your mouth for a certain amount of time, it will harden and turn into tartar. If tartar is allowed to remain on teeth, it will encourage the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. Then, tartar, plaque, food debris and bacteria will gather in these deep pockets and you will have gum disease. Gum disease can cause teeth to loosen and fall out. The best way to keep your mouth free of the harmful effects of dental plaque is to brush and floss on a daily basis, and come in for regular teeth cleanings every six months. During the teeth cleanings, our dental hygienists will remove all plaque and tartar from on your teeth, frown between your teeth, and from just below the gum line.
Our Rockville MD dentist will provide you with periodic dental exams to make sure that your teeth and gums are remaining healthy. For an appointment to see our top-notch dentist, contact us today.
