You may have heard of plaque, but why is it so bad? As this short video explains, plaque starts out as a home for harmful bacteria. These secrete an acid that creates cavities. Eventually, it hardens and becomes tartar, which leads to gum disease.
To help avoid cavities and gum disease, you need to brush, floss, and call our Plymouth, MI dental office at 734-404-7336 for a new appointment. As a member of the national dental honor society, Dr. Callow has the expertise and training needed to help spot and remove plaque before it gets bad. But that can only happen if you come in for your next appointment.
