Plaque & Decay

Plaque is made up of millions of bacteria which sit in the gaps between your teeth and along your gum lines.

It begins to wear down the protective layer of your tooth (enamel and dentine) which eventually causes decay.

If untreated tooth decay will eventually reach your nerves causing sensitivity and pain. If it continues you risk permanently damaging or killing the nerve of your tooth.

Your risk of decay can be reduced by practicing good oral hygiene however we recommend a professional dental clean as brushing and flossing alone will not always remove plaque from difficult places.

If cavities have begun to form a filling may stop the spread. Contact us to find out more.
