Furthermore, our team in Palm Desert, California, is happy to share with you more information on plaque and why it is dangerous to your oral health.

Plaque is a sticky film that contains bacteria that appears on your teeth after you eat or drink something. If left ignored, plaque could cause bacteria to seep into your tooth enamel and gums, which leads to tartar buildup, which can only be removed by your dentist. These substances create cavities when untreated, which can rot your teeth and lead to gum disease. That is why it is essential to remove plaque at least twice a day.

As you can see, there are many reasons to treat plaque and keep your smile in top-notch oral health.
