Plaque accumulates on the surface of your teeth due to the presence of bacteria in your mouth. If not removed, plaque can cause tooth decay and gum disease. This dental health video shows you how to detect and remove plaque from your teeth.
The clip suggests using a special type of mouthwash to show the plaque hidden in your teeth. Once the plaque is identified, you can remove it through brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash.
