Dental plaque is an invisible layer of food debris that builds on the tooth. It is always there and is made of bacteria and food debris. It has a slimy texture and provides nutrition to the bacteria that can cause tooth decay unless you seek dental plaque treatment from a professional dentist.
More than 800 different types of bacteria are present in plaque. Most of which are harmless. However, there are some bacteria, especially an organism called streptococcus mutans, which causes tooth decay by producing acid from sugars that we eat, which dissolves tooth enamel.
Other bacteria are responsible for gingivitis (mild, reversible gum disease) and periodontitis (severe, irreversible gum disease).
Have you noticed the above symptoms? You would want to consider removing plaque from teeth at the dentist.
