Gum and bone disease are caused initially by plaque and tooth decay is caused by the combination of plaque, bacteria, and sugar. Plaque begins to build up on your teeth within 20 minutes after eating. This is why it is very important that you brush your teeth after each meal. If your teeth are not cleaned properly each day, the plaque left on the tooth surfaces and gums will turn into tartar over time and begin to destroy the bone surrounding the teeth. The roots of teeth are supported by the underlying bone. So, if you start to lose too much bone surrounding the teeth, you can eventually lose your teeth!
Seeking appropriate dental care can help you prevent gum and teeth problems. By having your teeth routinely cleaned by a hygienist and examined by the dentist, gum and bone disease can be prevented. Professional cleanings include removing plaque and tartar surrounding the teeth and gums. Various dental instruments are used to help loosen and remove the plaque and tartar deposits surrounding the teeth and gums. Here at Advanced Dental Concepts, we offer proper oral care to help you achieve healthy teeth and gums.
Routine exams typically involve dental x-rays and camera photos. These tools allow us to detect and prevent any dental problems from occurring or worsening.
Scared and unsure about the state of your teeth or gums? Here are some things you need to do regularly:
Most people believe that all they have to do is brush twice a day to have good teeth and gums. Don’t forget though that there are small particles of food and even plaque that get stuck in between the gaps of your teeth that your toothbrush bristles can’t reach! The only way to get that out is by flossing.
Use a mouthwash
It doesn’t just mask bad breath but it also reduces the amount of bad bacteria in your mouth. The combination of plaque, sugar, and bacteria causes tooth decay (cavities). So, if you reduce the amount of bacteria in the mouth, then you can reduce the risk of getting cavities. You also reduce the risk of getting gum or bone disease by using a good mouthwash.
Check with your dentist
Seeing your dentist every six months can help you keep your oral health in check. The dentist checks your teeth and gums after every cleaning visit. By having routine dental visits, the dentist can evaluate your dental condition and help you prevent oral and dental problems or even stop an existing dental issue from spreading to your gums, teeth, and the rest of your oral cavity. Your dentist will also show you ways on how to maintain your oral health.”

I had my dental implant done here and I was able to save money since I grabbed their new patient special promo! It was a wise decision and a great offer for new patients like me!
I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.
THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven’t been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn’t have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of

When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable.
I was looking for a dentist near me and my sister recommended Advanced Dental Concept! My whole experience was good. I was treated nicely the moment I walked in. The place was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I had my check up there and will come back for my teeth whitening treatment!
