Dental Plaque, the worst enemy for the health of your mouth

by Wildsmile

Among the many problems that can affect the health of our mouth is the dentobacterial plaque or dental plaque, which is the main cause of the appearance of caries, gingivitis and the unpleasant halitosis.

What is dental plaque?

It is a layer of bacteria and sugars that agglutinate on the surface of the teeth, both on the front and the back. If you don't have good oral hygiene, this layer will adhere more and more, until it causes real problems, putting the health of your teeth in danger. All this agglutination causes bacteria that develop quickly, producing acids that weaken the enamel of the teeth and, in long term, lead to diseases such as gum recession, tartar, HALITOSIS or cavities.
