Most individuals are familiar with the term “plaque” and are aware that it should not be present on your teeth. However, they are unaware of what plaque actually is or how it contributes to tooth decay.

The bacteria that dwell on the surface of your teeth and around the gumline form a sticky, white film called plaque. It builds up from routine daily tasks like eating and drinking, particularly if you’ve been ingesting a lot of carbohydrates and grains. Have you ever experienced a fuzzy feeling on your teeth that disappears after a thorough brushing?

Yep, that’s plaque.

Dental decay is a result of plaque, which is caused by bacteria that enjoy eating the sugars in your mouth and releasing acids that erode your tooth enamel. Plaque turns into tartar if you don’t routinely brush and floss away at it. Only a professional cleaning can get rid of the hardened substance called tartar that has built up on your teeth. To make an appointment for a dental cleaning, call our clinic.

To regularly remove plaque:

  • At least twice daily, use fluoride toothpaste to properly brush your teeth.
  • To get rid of plaque that your brush can’t reach, floss at least once every day.
  • Come see us for routine dental cleanings.

If you would like more information or need a dental checkup, please schedule an appointment with your best local dentist in Kent at Seablue Dental.
