ratings and reviews)
Plaque is the sticky, colourless film of bacteria that forms on teeth. It makes teeth ""feel fuzzy"" to the tongue and is most noticeable when teeth are not brushed. Plaque contains bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. Everyone develops plaque because bacteria are constantly growing in our mouths, so it is not easy to see. Plaque that is not removed from around the gum line can cause inflammation and irritation to the gums around your teeth.
HOW IS DENTAL PLAQUE DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosing the condition is easy and the plaque is quite clearly visible. Dental checkup will confirm it.
HOW IS DENTAL PLAQUE TREATED?
More than treatment, plaque needs a proper prevention plan including tweaks in your diet as well as better oral hygiene. The dentist can give you an antibacterial rinse and even prescribe a sealant which can prevent the buildup of plaque and help in softening what is already deposited on the teeth. A clean up session will also help.
DID YOU KNOW?
