For Adults 35 & over, gum disease or periodontal disease, cause more damage than cavities. Three out of four adults are affected at some point in their life.
With a daily regimen, the best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is with a good toothbrush & floss technique. Periodontal disease and decay are both caused by bacterial plague. Plague is a colorless film, which sticks to your teeth at the gum line. Plaque constantly forms on your teeth commonly referred to as calculus. Thorough daily brushing and flossing can remove these germs and help prevent the build up of plaque.
Daily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus to a minimum, whereas a professional cleaning will remove calculus in places a toothbrush and floss can’t reach. Schedule a regular professional teeth cleaning at Route 66 Smiles and prevent the chance for gum disease for life.
