How to get rid of plaque and prevent periodontal disease
Decades ago, as people aged they would simply loose their teeth, and that was a commonly accepted fact. Things are very different today. With all the advancements in the field of dentistry, we came to know that a good oral health will help you maintain your teeth all throughout your lifetime. It takes preventive measures, a regular oral hygiene and dental visits to keep your teeth in place and healthy, but lets face it, it's worth it. On of the main causes of dental problems and teeth loss in the past was plaque. Plaque is composed by germs and it sticks to your teeth in the form of a yellowish film. Plaque is the result of poor dental hygiene, lack of professional teeth cleaning and bad eating habits. If not regularly removed from your teeth, plaque leads to the formation of tartar, also known as calculus. The latter is nothing else but hardened dental tartar that attacks your gums, leading to periodontal disease and teeth loss. Going back to plaque, the first symptoms that indicate that your gums have been Affected by the presence of this film full of germs are swollen or bleeding gums. If these symptoms are not treated and the germ progress towards your jaw bone and dental tissues, eventually you will suffer from tooth loss.

So how do we prevent plaque from forming?

First of all, always remember that dental hygiene is everything to keep your teeth healthy, there is just no way around it!

When brushing your teeth, make sure you do it for at least two minutes, twice a day. We recommend for you to wash teeth each time you have a meal but if that is not possible, do not skip teeth washing in the morning and before going to bed. Always use a brush with a smaller rounded head and soft bristles to avoid irritating your gums. Wash your teeth by carryout out circular movements all along the teeth surface.

Never forget to teeth floss. Teeth floss helps you get rid of the food residues stuck between your teeth and the primary cause of many teeth infections. When using teeth floss, make sure you do it properly. Some people may believe that bleeding gums after flossing are a normal thing, and that is not true. Be gentle when flossing and try not to cut into your gums too deep.

Wash mouth is a great aid to destroy the remaining bacteria present in your mouth after you brushed. Also, mouth wash eliminated food residues you just got out of interdental spaces with the teeth floss. When choosing a mouth wash, try to avoid those containing alcohol.

Finally, ask your dentist for a professional cleaning treatment to remove the remaining tartar and plaque formed on your teeth. Just by doing so you will make sure no bacteria will reach your gums and your teeth will stay healthy and beautiful in time.
