If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay as healthy as possible, you will want to have excellent oral hygiene. At our dental clinic in Shelby Township MI, MCDental Care, PLLC, you will be able to receive excellent dental cleanings which will help ensure that all dental plaque is removed from your teeth.
When you come to our dental practice for a dental exam or other dental care at our dental clinic in Shelby Township MI, you will be seen by one of our expert dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Michelle C. Dziurgot. It is also important that you have a dental cleaning every six months to make sure that all tartar and plaque is removed from your teeth. During a regular dental exam, both of these materials will be removed from your teeth, between your teeth, and from just below the gum line. Dental plaque is an extremely sticky and colorless film that is made up of many different types of bacteria. Materials from the dental plaque will combine with the saliva and carbs in your mouth and cause acids that attempt to eat through your tooth enamel. If this occurs, you will develop a dental cavity. Getting regular dental cleanings at our office will not only help your teeth to remain cavity-free, but will also keep tartar from developing on your teeth. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance which forms when plaque is allowed to stay on teeth for a certain period of time. Tartar will encourage the development of deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums, and gum disease will take hold in your mouth. As you can see, the key to having cavity-free teeth and healthy gums is to make sure that your teeth remain plaque and tartar-free. If gum disease forms, it will also threaten the health of your teeth as the gum disease can travel down to the jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and even fall out.
