Preventive dental care in Irmo

When you come in to see our Irmo dentist, you are taking a vital step in a comprehensive plan of preventive dental care; one that begins at home with our oral hygiene. Here at Peak Dental, our goal is to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy, now and in the long term.

At the beginning of any story when it comes to oral wellness is dental plaque. It’s a filmy bacterial substance and it forms on and between your teeth. You notice it every morning, even if you don’t think much about it. Morning breath is caused by it, and it’s why you feel so refreshed after brushing your teeth when you wake up. Plaque erodes tooth enamel, and it also irritates gums. And that’s just for starters. Any plaque that you are not able to remove through brushing and flossing hardens into a substance known as tartar. It’s just as hazardous as plaque, but cannot be effectively addressed with your toothbrush and dental floss. At that point, you’ve done as much as you can on your own. You need the help of our Irmo dentist. Our twice-yearly examination features checking for cavities that develop due to plaque and tartar. In addition, you will receive a teeth cleaning, which is the unheralded superstar of preventive dental care. Teeth cleanings perform two essential duties. First, they eradicated tartar, and also any residual plaque. Your teeth feel fresh, and you are less likely to suffer further tooth decay as a result. Second, if you have early stage gum disease, gingivitis, it will be stopped from progressing. Its effects will also be reversed. Advanced gum disease causes some unpleasant symptoms, such as bleeding gums, receding gums, and persistent bad breath. So avoiding it is vital.
