FAQs on Complete Dental Care

How Asheville area patients can remove dental plaque from the teeth

Dr. Christopher Port is a dentist in the Asheville area who encourages his patients, new and current, to take good care of their smile. Dental care often requires patients to brush and floss their teeth after every meal and maintain their regular appointments with their dentist. This is important in ensuring problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease are avoided, or, if they occur, that they are able to be treated immediately before they become a bigger problem.

The key to maintaining a healthy smile is the removal of dental plaque. Plaque is what develops on the teeth after tartar has been uncontrolled. Bacteria and food particles can cause tartar to start developing on the surfaces of the teeth and gums. Tartar is a sticky substance that can be removed with brushing and flossing. If patients do not remove dental plaque in a timely manner, it becomes hard and develops into plaque. Plaque cannot be removed easily with brushing, which is when patients need to see a dental professional.

Plaque can be removed with special instruments at the dental office. Dr. Christopher Port and the team of the Asheville Smile Center can provide patients with plaque removal during their recall appointments. Plaque can develop in very hard-to-reach places that can be difficult for patients to reach with floss and a toothbrush, which is why regular visits with a dentist for a professional cleaning is highly recommended, even for patients who are diligent about their oral health care needs. Dr. Christopher Port can remove dental plaque from the surfaces of the teeth and gums and bring the smile back to health after each dental recall visit.

If you live in the Asheville community or surrounding area and are interested in learning more about complete dental care and improving oral health, now is the time to contact Dr. Christopher Port and the team of the Asheville Smile Center to learn about how to remove tartar, plaque, food particles, and bacteria from the smile to keep it healthy and clean. Our practice also provides patients with esthetic dentistry solutions and restorative treatments to help in maintaining a healthy smile for life!
