Even if you’re diligent about maintaining a regular brushing and flossing routine, it’s not always possible to get rid of all the dental plaque that regularly accumulates in your teeth. Plaque is especially difficult to remove from certain hard-to-reach places that many of us (especially kids) tend to overlook. Plaque contains harmful bacteria that can eat away at the enamel of your teeth and cause cavities. And, if given the chance, plaque can harden into a substance called tartar, which contributes to the development of gum disease.
For that reason, it’s important to schedule regular exams and professional teeth cleanings at your trusted Vernon Hills dentist office. Regular oral exams and teeth cleanings are the most effective way to prevent the dental problems caused by plaque accumulation. At every checkup, our team will carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any sign of dental disease or developing problems that can affect your oral health. During the course of your checkup exam, our dentist will be able to evaluate the efficacy of your oral care regimen at home. When oral hygiene isn’t adequately maintained, dental decay and gum disease can begin to develop. Even though these are two of the most common dental conditions, with a consistent oral care regimen at home and professional cleanings at our Vernon Hills dentist office, you’re taking the most important steps towards a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
