How do you help presumed dental plaque?

Dental plaque: Treatment for dental plaque will reduce the risk for dental caries (cavities) and gingivitis. Regular brushing and flossing reduces that chance that plaque will damage the tooth enamel. Professional dental cleaning removes plaque and tartar that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing. Professional cleaning, performed once or twice a year, can prevent the build-up of plaque.

Home Care & Dentist: Dental plaque builds up & one of the main ways to protect against plaque, is to brush your teeth after meals, and floss twice per day. Using an electric sonicare or oral b toothbrush and a hydrofloss oral irrigator is very helpful in maintaining clean, healthy gums and teeth. It is also important to see a dentist for an exam and professional dental cleaning at least two times each year.
