    Dr. Angela Fitzpatrick moved to St. Louis in 2012 and has quickly come to call the city home. She is very excited to join Dr. White and Dr. Krobath in providing the excellent care to which their patients are accustomed.  After graduating from the University of Notre Dame and Marquette Dental School, she served 7 years as a dentist in the US Air Force, being stationed in Washington DC, Charleston SC, and finally at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. She and her husband, Brendan, have four children, ages six and under.  When not at work, you can probably find her cooking, driving the kids to activities or enjoying the Zoo, Botanical Gardens or one of St. Louis’ other gems. It’s unclear who enjoys those activities more – Dr. Fitzpatrick or the kids!Dr. Angela Fitzpatrick moved to St. Louis in 2012 and has quickly come to call the city home.

    What You Need to Know About Plaque, Tartar, and Cavities

    Last updated 2 years ago

    In order to care for your dental health, it’s important to understand the oral threats you’re fighting against. Keep reading to learn about proper dental hygiene and preventing three common oral threats: plaque, cavities, and tartar.

    Plaque
    The hard layer that covers a tooth is called enamel. A tooth’s enamel is its protective layer against harmful bacteria. Food particles can become wedged between your teeth or beneath the surface of your gum. Without being brushed or flossed away, these food particles can cause the formation of plaque, a film produced by bacteria. Plaque is an acidic substance that wears down your tooth’s enamel over time, exposing the root and making it vulnerable to cavities and infections. Without regular dental exams, plaque formation can occur undetected and result in the development of cavities.

    Tartar
    If you hear your dentist refer to tartar, then he or she is speaking about a type of hardened plaque. While plaque affects the enamel of your teeth, tartar targets your gums. By infiltrating your gum line, tartar irritates your gums and causes inflammation. Tartar is responsible for gum disease and can sometimes cause cavities. Tartar also causes discoloration of the teeth, resulting in a duller smile over time.

    Cavities
    A cavity is a hole in your tooth that is caused by plaque. After plaque has worn away the enamel that protects a tooth, it can begin to attack the interior of the tooth and produce a cavity. Without being filled, a cavity may become larger and compromise the health of the entire tooth and surrounding tissues. As a cavity becomes larger, it can cause more painful symptoms. If left untreated, a minor cavity could become severe enough to require a root canal. Visiting your dentist regularly is essential to preventing both cavities and more serious dental conditions.

    For more information on the causes and prevention of plaque, cavities, and tartar, make an appointment with Dr. Michael White or Dr. David Krobath. Call Webster Dental Care for your general dentistry needs in St. Louis at (314) 227-0484.

    If you have an upcoming dental examination, you may be wondering how cavities form and why they are harmful. Grasping the consequences of poor oral hygiene may help you better guard against future cavities.

    This video provides an overview of the formation of cavities. A cavity is caused by food particles and sugars that are turned into acids over time. If left undetected and untreated, a simple cavity may turn into a more severe dental health condition. Prevent bacteria and plaque from collecting on the enamel of your teeth by regularly brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist.
