Que es la placa?
La mayoría de la gente ha oído hablar de la palabra "placa,"Y saber que no es algo que quieras en tus dientes. Aún, no saben qué es exactamente la placa o cómo contribuye a la caries dental.

La placa es pegajosa, película incolora de bacterias que vive en la superficie de los dientes y a lo largo de la línea de las encías. It accumulates from normal daily activities such as eating and drinking, especially if you’ve been consuming a lot of sugars and starches.

Ever had that fuzzy feeling on your teeth that goes away after you give them a good brush?

Yep, that’s plaque.

Plaque is what contributes to dental decay, as bacteria like to consume the sugars in your mouth and excrete acids that wear away at your tooth enamel.

When you don’t regularly brush and floss away plaque, it forms tartar. Tartar is the calcified substance on your teeth that only a professional cleaning can remove.

To regularly remove plaque:
1. Brush thoroughly with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day.
2. Floss at least once a day to remove plaque that your brush can’t reach.
