Adverse conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease are caused by plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in the mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids, which eat away at tooth enamel and causing cavities to form. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it can infect and inflame the soft tissues and bone structure supporting the teeth, which can lead to gum disease. Our office focuses on early detection and intervention, to diagnose cavities and periodontal disease from the outset, when they are easiest to treat. We provide a thorough examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography as needed, and will determine the most gentle, precise and effective course of treatment. Preventive care also includes a thorough, professional teeth cleaning in Oxford, which allows us to remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach crevices of your mouth. During your teeth cleaning, we also take the opportunity to guide you on techniques you can use at home to improve your oral hygiene regimen. Brushing, flossing and periodic teeth cleanings are effective tools to combat the detrimental effects of plaque. For our pediatric patients, we also offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which are proven tor reduce the risk of cavities in children.
