Dental Plaque Information

Dental Plaque is the accumulation of debris - of food and dead bacteria that buids up around the gum-tooth margin, leading to fermentation and infection. Visit your dentist for a professional cleaning at least twice a year to remove tartar from places brushing and flossing may miss. Dental Plaque contains many types of bacteria (germs). You can remove plaque by good oral hygiene. The gums can often resist the invasion of bacteria. It is thought that infection is more likely to develop if your defence or resistance against bacteria is reduced in some way. The part of the tooth next to the sulcus is extremely difficult to keep free of bacterial plaque, and if not removed constantly, or left undisturbed for a few days, will form tartar - a rough, hard material that adheres to teeth. Plaque and tartar build-up constitute the primary cause of periodontal disease. Regular brushing is the best way to get rid of plaque and avoid oral health problems.

Dental Plaque Causes

  • Poor oral hygiene when a lot of plaque and large numbers of bacteria build up.
  • Smoking (which may alter your resistance to gum infection).
  • If you have a poor immune system. For example, if you have an illness which makes your immune system less effective, or if you are on chemotherapy, etc.
  • If you have diabetes.
