Beautiful and healthy smile without plaque!
Dental plaque is a complex set of micro-organisms. The environment they live and develop in is called biofilm. Over time, the formed sticky layer builds up and changes its bacterial composition. The bacteria release acids that damage tooth enamel, and later lead to caries.
With time, as well as in case of bad oral hygiene, plaque hardens, transforming itself into tartar, gums ''come off'' from the teeth and a distance known as periodontal pocket forms.
Poor oral hygiene is the first and most important cause of dental plaque. The basic rule known to all people is that teeth should be cleaned twice a day and in the best case after meals. The best prevention includes a visit to a dentist once a year.
Experts recommend the use of a dental floss in addition to brush and toothpaste. It prevents the emergence of a serious problem, providing effective cleaning and plaque removal. Dental floss consists of many thin filaments and is used for cleaning of interdental spaces, where the brush fails to clean effectively.
In many cases while maintaining daily oral hygiene uncleaned areas on the teeth can remain. There is an easy and simple method for dental plaque control with the so-called "detector of dental plaque". It works using the ability of the bacteria causing caries, to fluoresce in pale pink to red color when illuminated by ultraviolet light. So plaque becomes visible and shows where there is a need to brush.
Studies show that the use of the "detector" increases the number of the visits to the dental offices. The method is effective in maintaining good oral hygiene for the whole family. "The detector of plaque" is offered by the "Laser Optics" and is at affordable price, which allows everyone to have such a device at home.
