Dental Plaque

   A clear sticky substance in the mouth that clings to the teeth gums is known as dental plaque. Improper oral habits pave way for plaque accumulation on the teeth and gums. When we do not brush or floss properly after having food items such as milk, sugar, sweets, candy, cakes etc. may cause developing plaque. Bacteria that live in the mouth develop as a result of irregular oral practices. These bacteria come in to contact with the food particles in the mouth and produce acids. These acids cause damages and may result in tooth decay. Plaque causes damage to the bone that supports the tooth as they develop under the gums.


    One should follow good oral habits in order to prevent plaque formation. Brushing twice a day with soft rounded tip tooth brush will help to remove the sticky substances from the mouth. Brush thoroughly in the pace where the gum and teeth meet. Using a toothpaste and mouthwash that contain fluoride will also help in preventing bacteria. Following these tips will also help you to prevent the teeth from damages:

  • Floss between the teeth once a day.
  • Visit the dentist once in six months.
  • Maintain an oral-health friendly diet
  • Use antibacterial mouth wash
