How Tooth Brushing Prevents Gum Disease

Lehi Teeth Bleaching

Why should everyone brush at least twice a day? Let's consider why this is vital.

Brushing and flossing is the best way to prevent decay.

Brushing with fluoride toothpaste and carefully flossing removes the food from our teeth and restricts the build-up of plaque.

If we let food stay on our teeth, the starches in the food will combine with the plaque. This nasty mixture forms an acid which immediately starts drilling into the enamel to form cavities. Brushing can't get all the spaces between your teeth, so you've got to floss also.

Brushing and flossing keep gums and bones healthy.

If you let gum disease go untreated, you can lose teeth that are cavity-free!

The progression of gum disease (gingivitis) goes like this:

  1. Plaque build-up irritates gums.
  2. Irritated gums recede from the tooth.
  3. Bacteria multiply in the spaces between the gum and tooth.
  4. The bone holding the tooth is eaten by the bacteria.
  5. Say goodbye to the tooth.

The good news is that gingivitis can be reversed if early. Call Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry at 801-766-4042 to schedule a gum disease evaluation at our office in Lehi.
