The mouth is a complex structure with an abundance of nooks and crannies that are perfect hiding spaces for bacteria and plaque. That’s why it’s important to brush and floss your teeth multiple times a day. This video features a look into the mouth and offers a detailed explanation of the relationship between good and harmful oral bacteria. You’ll learn about dental caries and the factors that can cause harmful oral bacteria to flourish. Then, you’ll learn about plaque and take a descriptive and animated tour through the mouth to learn about how plaque leads to cavity development.
If you want to keep cavities at bay, you’ll need support and care from a certified dentist. At Open Wide Dental, we can further educate you on how to maintain a healthy mouth and provide preventative dental services. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (602) 457-3973.
