How to Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

What is Plaque?

Plaque is a soft substance that builds up on your teeth. It is mostly made up of bacteria, which feeds on sugar from food and drink. These bacteria then produce acids as a waste product that attack the teeth by dissolving the minerals in the tooth surface. If this happens too often, tooth decay results. This is why it is important to limit the intake of sugary food and drink and avoid snacking. A good oral hygiene regime is also necessary to prevent dental problems.
