Tooth Decay & Plaque

Tooth Decay Treatment

Plaque is the sticky buildup of bacteria on your teeth, usually a result of poor oral hygiene. The bacteria in plaque use the sugar in food and drinks you consume to produce acids, which can break down your tooth enamel and gums.

Plaque can sometimes be difficult to notice as it is usually clear unlike tartar (calculus), which is a hardened form of dental plaque yellowish in colour. If teeth are not regularly brushed and flossed it can result in plaque build up on the teeth and around the gum line, which eventually leads to tooth decay and tooth cavities.

The treatment for plaque is usually better oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. Speak to our friendly team of dentists at Murray Valley Dental Group to find out how you can improve your oral hygiene and book in a dental cleanup.

If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to further problems like bad breath,  a more severe toothache, and even tooth loss. Ignoring a cavity or decaying tooth can not only result in pain for you but also higher costs due to more complex dental procedures being required.
