5 Reasons That Cause Plaque

MDS(Prosthodontist), BDS

5 Reasons That Cause Plaque

Plaque is a film that forms over the teeth. This film is sticky in nature and it is also colorless. It is formed due the presence of bacteria and materials secreted by the bacteria. Plaque has the potential to damage the enamel of the tooth. If plaque is not treated within a reasonable amount of time, then it becomes hard in texture and causes even more damage.

Reasons that cause plaque:

1. Failure to brush every day: This is the chief reason behind the formation of plaque. Teeth must be brushed twice every day in order to keep them clean and healthy. If food particles remain stuck in the groves of the teeth, they can lead to many problems, like cavities and plaque. Each area of the teeth should be cleaned with a suitable toothbrush. The insides of the teeth should not be neglected.

2. Failure to floss every day: Flossing is unfortunately not so common in India. Brushing helps to keep the teeth clean overall but it does not reach some of the spaces between the teeth. Flossing is therefore required to make sure that the plaque on the gum line and other problematic areas are removed.

3. Excessive consumption of sweet and sugary food: Foods like cakes, muffins, sweetmeats, cold drinks, ice creams etc contain carbohydrates which the bacteria tend to feed on. In the process of creating the film of plaque, they turn the sugar into acid, which causes damage to the tooth. Such foods should, therefore, be avoided as they cause plaque.

4. Avoiding natural foods that improve teeth: There are many natural foods which keep teeth healthy. Failing to include such foods in one's diet could lead to the formation of plaque. Fruits and vegetables like guava or carrots can serve this purpose.

5. Failing to visit the dentist regularly: Since dentists are experts when it comes to taking care of death, everyone should make sure to get dental checkups regularly. Even if one flosses and brushes regularly, plaque may still form. A dentist should be consulted regularly to check if any such formation has occurred. Failure to this may cause the formation of even more plaque and more damage.

I have problem in my teeth. Dr. say RCT. What is RCT and it is good for my teeth.

I have problem in my teeth. Dr. say RCT. What is RCT and it is good for my teeth.
Rct is" root canal treatment. It is a way to preserve your teeth rather than getting it extracted. There are canals present in every tooth root. These canals carry nerves and blood vessels to the tooth to provide it nutrition. In a carious tooth i. E decayed tooth these canals serve as a channel for the spread of bacterial infection. In rct the nerves and vessels are removed with the help of a dental file, the canal is cleaned, irrigated and disinfected and filled with a biocompatible tooth material.

Hello lybrate-user, the condition is known as periodontitis. It is caused due to improper oral hygiene which leads to continues deposition of plaque and debris which can not be removed with your daily brushing and leads your gums shift down and down. Consult nearest dentist for scaling. Thank you.

I have problem with my teeth (second molar) was operated root canal 2yrs back now it is having tremendous pain & swelling please suggest right solution.

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
Kindly get an x-ray done of the rct treated tooth. May be infection has occurred again. Avoid eating from that side of the tooth having pain till the time you don't take x-ray and the required treatment for it because it will pain more. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab flozen ns. This will help in reducing pain n swelling but this is going to give you temporary relief.

Its ok you ve done cleaning one years ago, but due to improper cleaning of teeth and oral cavity, calculus develops which leads to gingivitis and swollen gums. Scaling and polishing is the treatment you need.

I am 20 years old male. I have blue black (blend) gums and yellowish teeth. What should I do for healthy gum and teeth.

MDS Prosthodontics, MDS Endodontist
Dentist, Ahmedabad
I am 20 years old male. I have blue black (blend) gums and yellowish teeth. What should I do for healthy gum and teeth.
Blue black gum may be due to melanin which varies from person to person and it's not indicating that your gums are not healthy but to get esthetic (pink gums) you can consult periodontist. And for yellowish teeth also you should consult periodontist first. Yellowish teeth may be due to poor oral hygiene, or fluorosis, or side effect of some medicine. It can be get white by just scaling or bleaching or veneer prosthesis.

Hi you said your son is having cavity and you are right it can be checked only by restoring the teeth by cement filling, try and make him understand the importance of treatment, these are milk tooth and will fall in due course of time please take him to visit a dental surgeon and have checkup and treatment done accordingly. Make him use colgate total paste for cleaning of teeth and regular use of listerin mouthwash twice a day after meals.

After RCT I had put cap. After 2 month now I am feeling pain in this teeth. Please suggest.
First visit your dentist who has done the RCT. Let him/her check. One x-ray should be done. On the basis of the report of x ray further treatment will be decided. If there will be minor infection then it can be treated by medicines only n if not then removal of cap n re RCT should be done.

Brushing for 3 to 4 minutes is enough. Kindely do not exceed time. Use tongue cleaner also. And use clorhexidine mouth washes. If it still persists Visit a dentist and get Scaling done. It could be due to deposits in mouth.

Treat the infection with appropriate antibiotics. You can also take pain relievers such as aspirin paracetamol or ibuprofen. If the pain and inflammation are severe, or if the pericoronitis recurs, oral surgery to have the gum flap or wisdom tooth removed may be necessary.

My teeth is yellow. Tell me home remedy for avoid yellow colour and I need full white colour teeth.
Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. The yellow bacterial film called “plaque” that occurs naturally in your mouth can build up if not removed regularly through good oral hygiene practices. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning, polishing along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping.

You have not mentioned about gutkha chewing habit or so. Anyway be clear about this that at this stage no home remedy will work. You need to visit an specialist dentist and at maximum it may require a surgical approach in your case if medicines and exercises fails. You can ask me further in this regard as I myself have treated several such cases with lasers. Thank you.
