Dental plaque is a clear and extremely sticky film that continually forms in your mouth. It will stick to your teeth and other surfaces in your mouth. Plaque is made up of many different types of microorganisms and bacteria. Part of the plaque consists of acids which will eat through your teeth and cause dental cavities. This is just one reason why you want to make sure that all dental plaque is removed from your teeth. When plaque is allowed to remain on teeth for even a short period of time, it will harden and turn into a mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth; this is called tartar. Tartar will cause deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums. Plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria will all gather in these deep pockets and you will have gum disease. If gum disease is allowed to develop it cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. So as you can see, there are many reasons why you want to make sure that your teeth stay free of dental plaque. The best way to make sure that all plaque is removed from your teeth is to follow a comprehensive at-home dental cleaning regimen, and have dental cleanings at our dental office in Carmichael every six months.
