To maintain good dental health, your teeth need a lot of good old-fashioned TLC. But even when we do our best, bacteria can sneak in and cause tooth decay. At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, we are here to take care of your dental issues.
Few of us get through life without a cavity. They’re the common cold of dental health!
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque. Plaque clings to your teeth, and the acid in it starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth.
You can go a long way toward preventing cavities by brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day. Brushing and flossing removes that filmy plaque and promotes healthy teeth and gums.
It’s also wise to see us at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. People from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata come to our office for general and cosmetic dentistry. Request an appointment today!
