Everyday dental care is essential to maintaining a healthy and attractive-looking smile. However, forgetting to brush for even a few days can mean a lot of problems for the teeth and gums. When teeth are not brushed regularly, plaque can build up and lead to dangerous tooth decay and gum disease near Renton, WA.
As seen in the short video, after five days of not brushing or flossing, a significant amount of plaque can build up on the teeth. This plaque causes the mouth to smell and the teeth to feel fuzzy and as if there is a film over the surface. The plaque can lead to other, more dangerous effects though. Plaque contains the bacteria that leads to gum disease and cavities. If it is not removed regularly—with daily brushing and flossing—then patients may suffer from dangerous consequences to their oral health.
