How Dental Plaque Forms on the Teeth

Dental plaque is the sticky film that builds up on your teeth throughout the day. If you don’t remove it by brushing and flossing your teeth, it turns into tartar, which can only be removed by your dentist. What exactly causes plaque in the first place? Watch this video to find out.

In the video, you’ll learn how plaque builds up on your teeth and why removing it is so important to your dental health. Plaque is made up of bacteria that release acids, and these acids can eat away at your tooth enamel and inflame your gums.

Sticking to a good oral hygiene routine and seeing your dentist twice yearly are both important parts of controlling plaque and maintaining good oral health. At Oak Creek Dental Care, we offer the very latest in preventative and cosmetic dental care. Schedule an appointment at our Columbus, OH office by calling (614) 882-5525.
