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?
Dentists can detect the buildup of plaque by using plaque disclosing agents. Disclosing agents are dyes that turn into bright red colour when they come in contact with plaque. Plaque disclosing agents are in the form of gels and tablets. Visual examination by the dentist can also help detect plaque.
HOW IS DENTAL PLAQUE TREATED?
The dental hygienist will clean and polish the teeth, using mini dental tools like a tooth scraper, mirror, and special toothbrush. The tooth scraper removes plaque. Maintaining a good dental care routine at home will help prevent the development of plague.
DID YOU KNOW?
Plaque prevention is better than its treatment as all it needs is maintaining a proper oral health regime by brushing your teeth twice and visiting a dentist regularly.
