Does the thought of dental plaque keep you up at night? Maybe it should! This troublesome substance comes from oral bacteria that is always on the loose in your mouth. Plaque can turn your teeth dark and can also lead to decay and disease, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss. The good news is that you won’t have much to worry about if you are keeping up with your six month visits to our Bayside NY dentist’s office for your regular teeth cleanings and exams. That’s because we will be able to gently remove any plaque that is present while we look for any signs of emerging concerns.
