Interdental Cleaning and the fight against Plaque

Fighting the build up of Plaque is a constant battle. 

Every time you eat or drink the PH level in your saliva is changed causing an‘acid attack’ which increases your risk of dental decay.  Couple this with food debris becoming trapped between the teeth and you have a recipe for disaster. 

Patients often only realise the seriousness of a problem when it is too late.  Many people ignore the visible signs of Plaque or Calculus on their teeth, and even bleeding whilst brushing their teeth fails to alert them that something is wrong because the initial stages of gum disease are usually painless! 

Interdental cleaning is an important part of your Oral Hygiene routine and yet many adults ignore this very important step in maintaining good oral health.

 Almost 80% of adults fail to use any Interdental Aids (such as dental floss, TePe Brushes) but the truth is brushing alone is simply not enough!  

Effective cleaning to reduce Plaque reduces the risk of developing gingivitis (the initial stage of gum disease). 

Here at Tavistock Drive Dental Care we believe in preventative care where possible.  The Dentist and Hygienists work closely together to show you the best methods for keeping your mouth clean and healthy.
