Remove dental plaque in London
Plaque is a sticky, colourless film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth and along the gum line. Plaque contains bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. Everyone develops plaque because bacteria are constantly growing in our mouths, so it is not easy to see. If it is not removed from around the gum line, it can cause inflammation and irritation to the gums around your teeth. To prevent the build-up of plaque on teeth, be sure to floss once a day and brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride, anti-plaque toothpaste. Be sure to check up and examine your teeth regularly to make sure you are removing all plaque. Our dentists will tell you if your plaque removal techniques are effective, and provide you with further advice.
