Dental Cleanings & Exams
Dental plaque is a sticky layer of bacteria that forms on teeth and below the gum line. Every time you eat or drink, leftover particles linger around your teeth. If not removed properly, mouth bacteria will convert food debris into plaque acids that break down enamel and destroy teeth.
Plaque not only leads to decay and cavities, it can also cause periodontal disease.
If you are a new patient, Dr. Bhojani will perform a comprehensive dental exam and take x-rays to best assess your oral health needs. Your Oswego, IL dentist will look for signs of the following concerns:
- Tooth decay
- Bone loss
- Oral cancer
- Periodontal disease
Periodontal disease is the final stage of gum disease. Gingivitis is the first sign and the only stage that is reversible. It all starts with plaque buildup that is not removed with regular brushing and flossing. Only routine dental cleanings and exams in Bloomingdale and Oswego will uncover and eliminate harmful bacteria from hidden mouth areas.
