Plaque buildup, after only two days, can turn into dental tartar if left ignored. Tarter cannot be removed by simply brushing your teeth.

Gum Disease and Advanced Infections

When plaque is left on the teeth and not removed through daily flossing and brushing, this can lead to serious gum disease, resulting in the need for professional cleaning and costly periodontal treatment.

Gums support the teeth and by allowing tarter buildup under the gums, formed from bacteria,  you allow your gums to become infected causing greater potential for your teeth to loosen and fall out.

Consult with Your Dental Professional

Part of a good oral hygiene regimen is daily flossing and brushing at least twice daily. You should consult with your dental professional, Ocean County dentist, Dr. Ron Rotem for a consultation on the present condition of your gums and teeth.

Dr. Rotem and his staff can teach you how to floss properly and what type of toothbrush is best for caring for your teeth and massaging your gums. Keeping your tongue and cheeks clean are also part of good dental hygiene practices.

Professional cleanings for a minimum of twice yearly can prevent harmful gum disease and keep your gums strong and your teeth healthy.
