How to remove dental plaque

What is dental plaque?

Plaque is a build-up of naturally occuring microorganisms found in your mouth and bacteria by-products, dead cells and food residuals. Formation starts immediately after you brush your teeth and is normally considered harmless.

However, if you fail to remove plaque with regular toothbrushing and flossing, it can create a thick build-up which can lead to cavities, gingivitis, tooth loss, and periodontal disease.

Treatment for the symptoms of dental plaque, such as gingivitis and periodontal disease, should be performed by a qualified professional.

Removing Dental Plaque

  • Thoroughly brush your teeth at least twice a day with a flouride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove any plaque from between your teeth and under the gum line.
  • Limit how much junk food you eat - especially foods with high sugar or starch content.
  • Consult with your dentist about the best possible techniques to prevent dental plaque. Confirm that the steps you are taking are correct.
  • Go for regular dental check-ups.
