Plaque: Good oral hygiene means disrupting the plaque (bacteria) that adhere to our teeth and gums and produce both acids and digestive enzymes. Gently brush 2x/day for 2 full minutes BY THE CLOCK (counting in your head's not good enough) w soft t'brush & pea-sized portion of fluoridated t'paste. FLOSS DAILY. See Dentist 2X/YEAR.
