What Is Dental Plaque?

Plaque is the soft, sticky film that covers your teeth. As you will learn in this video, dental plaque consists mostly of bacteria that release acids.

Over time, the bacteria in plaque can break down your tooth enamel, causing tooth decay and cavities. If you do not maintain proper oral hygiene and visit your dentist for regular cleanings, plaque can harden into damaging tartar. Plaque and tartar build-up can also lead to gum disease, which can eventually lead to lost teeth.
