Plaque is one of the biggest enemies of the smile. This is because it promotes the development of tooth decay and gum disease, which are two very serious and dangerous dental issues. So, it’s best to keep this white, sticky film from your teeth and gums. To do so, our doctor, Dr. Edward B. Miller, encourages you to do the following things:

-Brush your teeth twice a day. (Every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed)

-Floss your teeth at least once a day. (You can use whichever floss you desire)

-Rinse your mouth daily. (It’s best to use antibacterial mouthwash because it kills the bacteria that create plaque)

-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. (This type of toothbrush cleans the teeth and cares for the gums)

-Use oral hygiene tools that have been approved by the ADA (American Dental Association).

-Visit our office every six months for a routine dental cleaning. (The cleaning treatment is vital to remove hardened plaque from your teeth)
