The focus of most dental care is based on either preventing or dealing with the effects of dental plaque. It's not something you can see, but this bacterial film grows on and between teeth, as well as at your gum line. It decays tooth enamel, forming cavities. It also irritates gum tissue and reddens it, which accounts for the early stages of gum disease, gingivitis. When you brush and floss, you are doing so largely to wash away plaque or to keep more plaque from developing. It's not always possible to eliminate all of the plaque you have, because it can hide out of reach, such as in gum pockets. It then hardens into tartar, which is not effectively removed with at-home oral hygiene. When you come in to see our Medic Cal dentist in Oxnard, you are taking a vital step in keeping your teeth and gums from succumbing to the effects of plaque and tartar. Our teeth cleanings get all the plaque and tartar, basically letting you start over when it come to your dental and periodontal well-being. You'll be far less likely to suffer future cavities. And our Medic Cal dentist in Oxnard also can halt the progress of gum disease so that you don't experience symptoms like persistent bad breath, bleeding gums when you brush, and receding gums. Those indicate periodontitis, the later stage of gum disease. And that puts your gum tissue and teeth at even greater risk.
