Is It Possible To Get Rid Of Dental Plaque At Home Effectively And Safe?
April 4, 2018
Unfortunately, many people experience dental plaque and tartar on their teeth. Let’s take a detailed look at why it happens and what we can do to improve your oral health.
What is dental plaque?
Dental plaque is a soft buildup that forms on the surface of the teeth. Initially, the surface of your teeth is smooth so that nothing can stick to your teeth. In some cases, a soft deposit starts to form on the teeth, and bacteria begin to accumulate through eating and other routine you perform in your mouth.
These germs feed on carbs and produce specific acids that ruin pellicle (protective film on dental enamel) and then dissolve mineral substances of dental enamel. As a result, “rough” enamel becomes a great place for various bacteria and soft deposits. Moreover, these areas continue to accrue mineral substances and form calculus. Calculus is a lot harder to remove.
