You’ve probably heard that dental plaque is the enemy of a healthy smile. But what is it, exactly?
Plaque is a sticky film, comprised mostly of bacteria, that coats your teeth and gums. The bacteria release a weak acid, which erodes enamel and irritates the gum tissue. When it’s not removed through brushing and flossing, it contributes to tooth decay and gum disease.
