Dental plaque is a big-time problem-causer. That’s because this sticky bacteria-filled substance can turn your teeth darker and contribute to the development of disease and decay in your mouth. The brushing, flossing, rinsing that you do at home is essential for keeping plaque to a minimum. Still, you will need to see us diligently for your six-month teeth cleanings and exams, during which our dental hygienists will work to remove any remaining plaque from your smile.
