Plaque growing on your teeth is far from uncommon. Plaque grows very easily, can develop within 24-48 hours of not brushing your teeth, and is the cause of almost every issue you can have in your mouth. Not only will you need the right Jupiter dentist to care for your mouth, but you’ll also need to do what needs to be done in order to prevent plaque growth in your mouth.
Cut Down on Sugary and Acidic Foods
Whether you are a child or an adult, it is never easy cutting back on something so good and something you might like very much. Sugary/acidic foods and beverages are the biggest reason people suffer from plaque growth and general tooth decay. You don’t have to completely cut them out of your diet, but you should think about cutting down on them going forward.
Keep Up on Your General Dental Care
One reason people suffer from plaque and tooth decay is that they do not properly care for their teeth. This means brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day. Without keeping up on brushing, the plaque will grow into tartar and from there the tartar will cause rapid tooth decay if it goes untreated. Pretty much everything that could go wrong in your mouth stems from not taking care of it. Brush your teeth once in the morning and once a night is the best way to avoid any issues.
Don’t Skip Your Scheduled Dental Cleanings
If you are someone that isn’t going to cut out sugary foods or brush your teeth with regularity, you should keep your scheduled dental cleanings, so your dentist can care for your teeth. Even if you are someone that keeps up on your teeth and doesn’t consume things that will damage them, you should keep your cleaning appointments, so your dentist can make sure everything is okay in your mouth. Things like cracks and chips can show up with little to no warning and can sometimes go unnoticed by you until the lasting damage is done.
