Having a plaque attack?

Plaque is that soft, sticky stuff that builds up on your teeth over time. It contains legions of bacteria. Left untreated it will eventually lead to gum disease, bad breath and tooth loss.

Frequent brushing and flossing are required to keep plaque at bay. But it's virtually impossible to remove all plaque without the skills of your professional dental hygienist. In other words, you're going to need some help.

Call our office today to schedule your next routine teeth cleaning to receive help with your plaque removal!

General Dentistry

General Dentistry Sioux City IAThe Importance of Hygiene Visits

The attention of a professional hygienist is your best defense in the struggle against gum disease. Regularly scheduled cleanings remove plaque accumulation before it forms a more challenging concern. Plaque often remains in the difficult-to-reach places of your mouth. Even with systematic brushing, some of it will remain in the grooves and pockets of your teeth and gums. Plaque hardens into tartar, which is beyond the scope of your standard toothbrush and floss to eliminate. Tartar accumulates below your gum line as well as on the enamel of your teeth, inviting decay and even gum disease to take up residence in your mouth. Recent research shows a clear link between untreated gum disease and other life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Which means having your teeth cleaned is one of the most beneficial reasons to visit your dentist!
