ratings and reviews)
A colourless film of bacteria that gets deposited onto the tooth is known as dental plaque. This can happen when the patient ingests too much of fatty and sweetened food. It tends to give a fuzzy texture to the teeth and makes the patient feel like the teeth have not been brushed for a while. This can also be caused due to poor dental hygiene.
HOW IS DENTAL PLAQUE DIAGNOSED?
The dentist or dental hygienist can take a look at the plaque with a physical examination under the glare of a lamp. Also, the dentist may want to check for any related problems like the build up of tartars, calculus or even cavities.
HOW IS DENTAL PLAQUE TREATED?
Treatment involves a thorough dental cleanup if the plaque has not developed further into calculus and caused cavities. Regular dental cleaning may be needed if you are prone to plaque build up.
DID YOU KNOW?
Plaque is made up of invisible masses of harmful germs that live in the mouth and stick to the teeth. Some types of plaque cause tooth decay and other types of plaque cause gum disease. Red, puffy or bleeding gums can be the first signs of gum disease. If gum disease is not treated, the tissues holding the teeth in place are destroyed and the teeth are eventually lost.
