Plaque Is A Thin, Sticky Film Of Bacteria That Constantly Forms On Your Teeth.
When You Eat Foods Containing Sugars And Starches, The Bacteria In Plaque Produce Acids, Which Attack Tooth Enamel. The Stickiness Of The Plaque Keeps These Acids In Contact With Your Teeth. After Constant Acid Attack, The Tooth Enamel Breaks Down Forming A Hole Or Cavity.
If Plaque Is Not Removed By Brushing, It Can Harden Into Something Called ‘Calculus’ – Another Name For It Is ‘Tartar’. As Calculus Forms Near The Gumline, The Plaque Underneath Releases Harmful Poisons Causing The Gums To Become Irritated And Inflamed. The Gums Start To Pull Away From The Teeth And The Gaps Become Infected. If Gum Disease Is Not Treated Promptly, The Bone Supporting The Teeth Is Destroyed, And Healthy Teeth Can Become Loose And Fall Out. Severe Gum Disease Can Lead To Teeth Falling Out And Needing To Be Replaced. Check up with Dr.Nechupadam Dental, Marine Drive to get rid of sever problems in future by the regular scaling.
