He will be able to assess the health of your teeth, gums, and you are entire mouth during these checkups. If you have a lot of plaque on your teeth, it can begin to affect your oral health. To begin with, dental plaque can lead to dental cavities. This is because plaque contains cavity-causing acids which will eat through your tooth enamel if they are not removed with tooth brushing and flossing. Our dentist will also be able to assess the health of your gums. If you have a lot of dental plaque and tartar on your teeth, it can cause gum problems. Plaque and tartar can lead to the formation of deep pockets between your teeth and gums. Plaque, tartar, food debris and bacteria will gather in these deep pockets and you will have gum disease. Gingivitis is a precursor to gum disease which can be identified during a regular dental checkup. If our dentist finds that you have gingivitis, he will most likely recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months to get your gums back to good health. The dental cleanings will make sure that the plaque and tartar are removed from your teeth so that your gums will not become irritated and inflamed.
