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?
The diagnosis of dental plaque is done by a dentist who will perform a thorough physical examination and get details of medical history and dental care routine to detect the cause of the problem.
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.
