Some things never seem to give up trying to wreck your teeth and gums, but the truth is, they never will and they will always be a constant threat. The number one villain is plaque and is essentially the catalyst for all other problems in the mouth which is why so many products from brushes to pastes and mouthwashes are design to home in specifically on plaque- remove it now and you will save yourself from the evils to come. It forms from bacteria and left alone, it will quickly harden into tartar, which will require your dentist to remove. Again, left alone, this will start to infect the gums and disease will set in, the teeth will be prone to decay and then suddenly we find ourselves at the extreme end of what plaque has started- periodontal disease. This is where all this ravishing and destruction has now infected the actual bone structure of the jaws: your teeth will fall out. Such an extreme condition can be solved, but with severe treatments involving bone and skin grafting. This horror story rather enhances the need for good oral health between you and your dentist to prevent getting to this stage. If you have any concerns on this subject, you should seek counsel from Mulberry dental care of Walton; they serve Surbiton and can tell you all you need to know about plaque and periodontal disease.
