Dental plaques: Do’s and Do not’s

Plaque is a sticky layer of material containing bacteria that accumulates on teeth. Many of the foods we eat cause the bacteria in our mouth to produce acids. Sugary foods are obvious sources of plaque, but there are others that you might not realize can cause harm.

The best way to remove plaque is by brushing and cleaning between your teeth every day.  Brushing removes plaque from the tooth surfaces. Brush your teeth twice per day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your toothbrush should fit your mouth and allow you to reach all areas easily. Use an antimicrobial toothpaste containing fluoride, which helps protect your teeth from decay. Cleaning between the teeth once a day with floss or interdental cleaners to remove plaque can also work, where the toothbrush can’t reach. Flossing is essential to prevent gum disease.
