The one thing you can do to better your oral health is practice good dental hygiene.
This requires a team effort between you and the team at Advanced Dental Care. Your role
is daily brushing and flossing, and our role is providing you with professional dental
cleanings and exams.
At your twice-yearly dental checkups, one of our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean
your teeth, removing plaque and tartar in order to reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum
Plaque is a biofilm that develops throughout the day in everyone’s mouth. And while plaque
is natural, an accumulation of plaque can be a problem. Plaque harbors bacteria, and this
bacterium converts the sugar in food into the acid that eventually causes cavities. Plaque
also contributes to the development of gum disease – both gingivitis and periodontitis. When
you come to Advanced Dental Care for your dental cleaning and exam, you can rely on our
staff to carefully check your gums for any signs of periodontal disease.
