Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids, which eat away at tooth enamel, causing cavities to form. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it can infect and inflame the soft tissues and bone supporting the teeth, causing periodontal disease. To protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, it’s important to brush, floss, limit your intake of sugar and visit our Lake Zurich dental office for routine checkups and professional teeth cleanings. During your teeth cleaning, we will thoroughly remove plaque buildup, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums, and guide you on techniques you can use at home to improve your oral hygiene regimen. For our pediatric patients, we strive to make checkups informative and engaging, and can provide dental sealants and fluoride treatments, for an added level of protection against tooth decay. For patients of all ages, a checkup includes a comprehensive examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our office also utilizes CariVu® as an adjunct diagnostic tool for identifying cavities that are below the tooth’s surface.
