Dr. Dennis Block is a dentist who runs a Ridgewood dentist office
and treats plaque, tartar, gum disease and more. Gum disease is a common ailment that is treated at our office and afflicts thousands of Americans each year. An important part of a daily oral care regimen is maintaining a healthy mouth as well as engaging in a proper teeth cleaning and brushing.
A teeth cleaning procedure will help dislodge debris and other food particles that can get trapped in between teeth and gums, creating bacteria that can cause cavities and gingivitis. Maintaining healthy gums starts with proper brushing and flossing at least twice a day, flossing and having annual cleanings. Bacteria causes plaque and buildup on the teeth. The bacteria eats away at tooth enamel, which can create cavities and gum disease. Plaque and tartar need to be scraped off with a regular cleaning.
Toothaches can signal a problem with the gums sometimes. The toothache may cause pain around the tooth or gums or jaws and can be caused by something like a cavity or cracked or broken tooth. Sometimes an exposed tooth root can cause severe toothaches as well.
