To maintain good dental health, your teeth and gums need a lot of good ol’-fashioned TLC. But even when we do our best, bacteria can sneak in and cause tooth decay. At David Rice DDS in Elgin, we would be happy to take care of your dental issues.
Few of us go through life without getting 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. That removes that filmy plaque to promote healthy teeth and gums.
It’s also wise to see us at David Rice DDS in Elgin twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Our services include general and family dentistry, and restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
