Plaque is a sticky film that can covers the teeth, which contains bacteria that produce an acid. This acid is what eats away at tooth enamel, making it easier for the teeth to decay. With a professional dental cleaning, the plaque is removed. It is not possible to clean your teeth as thoroughly as can be done with special dental tools and techniques. Cleaning off the plaque for some patients may include root planing, whether the plaque is taken off the roots of the teeth beneath the surface of the gums.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
