Beat Plaque with Your Toothbrush

Brushing your teeth is a routine part of dental care that has many benefits. Regular brushing prevents tooth decay, removes stains, and helps you avoid bad breath. Even more importantly, it helps prevent gum disease, which is the leading cause of premature tooth loss in adults. Gum disease has also been linked to heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia, diabetes, and other illnesses. Every day, affordable dentists in Munster help people manage gum disease and the factors that encourage it, but the most important preventative measure starts with a toothbrush.

How Plaque Destroys Your Teeth



Plaque is a sticky material that forms on the surfaces of your teeth. When it combines with the starches and sugars contained in foods you eat, the mixture creates an acid that attacks your tooth enamel. Over time, this leads to decay. Plaque also irritates your gums and causes inflammation. Symptoms of early gum disease include red, swollen, bleeding, and tender gums. The condition in its earliest stages is called gingivitis, and it can be reversed if diagnosed and treated in time. If left untreated, it will cause gums to separate from teeth and form pockets containing bacteria and pus. Eventually, the infection will destroy the bone that supports your teeth. When this occurs, teeth will loosen and may have to be extracted.

Brush Your Way to Great Dental Health



Proper dental care includes brushing your teeth regularly to remove damaging plaque and prevent gum disease. Dental floss removes plaque from between teeth where your brush can’t reach, so don’t forget to floss daily. Dentists recommend brushing twice a day for approximately two minutes. If possible, also brush after eating. When your toothbrush’s bristles look worn or start to fray, replace the brush immediately. Eating a healthy, balanced diet and avoiding sugary snacks and sodas can also protect your dental health. Be sure to see your dentist for regular dental care exams.
