What Is Dental Plaque And How Do We Clean It Off the Teeth?
Do you often find that your teeth feel slimy or fuzzy and not very clean? If so, you may have plaque buildup on your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film that coats the teeth and is caused by the bacteria from food and beverages that are introduced into the mouth. Plaque is easy to remove, but failure to do so properly can lead to a number of problems. When plaque is not removed from your mouth, it will continue to accumulate and turn into tartar. Tartar can lead to issues such as decay and gum disease.
