Plaque is your enemy!

Just remember plaque is your enemy and as such needs to be dealt with discipline.

Three main points about plaque:

1. Plaque is a sticky film which clings to the margins of the teeth. It is full of hundreds of different living bacteria which love to attack the gums and teeth.

2. If not removed thoroughly on a daily basis the risks of gum disease and tooth decay increases dramatically.

3. Thorough tooth brushing on a daily basis along with inter dental cleaning will greatly reduce the need for any intervention by your dentist.
