Dental plaque - Definition


Definition


Dental plaque is a white-tinted biofilm that develops naturally in the mouth on the surface of the teeth and gums. The plaque is composed of different substances that can potentially be harmful to the teeth, such as different bacteria and miniscule particles of food. Dental plaque is particularly recognized as being the cause of dental caries, or cavities, as well as the progressive destruction of the teeth, and some infections. Efficient brushing every day after each meal can eradicate dental plaque, along with recommended yearly visits to the dentist's.
