Plaque is a common cosmetic issue for both men and women. It’s a sticky film that accumulates on your teeth. Plaque contains a mass of bacteria and if left untreated, it can lead to gum disease and halitosis (bad breath).
Sadly, you can’t do anything to prevent the formation of plaque on your teeth. However, there are several natural treatments you can do at home to prevent or reduce plaque accumulation.
Due to nicotine, plaque deposits in smokers are dark yellow and the same is true of people who drink lots of coffee. Although it seems harmless, plaque is actually the first phase of what may result in tooth decay and even tooth loss.
The conventional dental procedure for plaque removal is known as deep prophylaxis. The procedure is affordable, but most people avoid it simply because they are time-bound or don’t like going to the dentist.
