Plaque, a clingy mixture of bacteria and food, is the root cause of tooth erosion and gum disease. After eating, plaque starts to accumulate on teeth within a short period. Plaque can cause tooth erosion or gum disease if teeth are not properly cleansed every day. Plaque hardens into tartar, a deposit that gets stuck at the tooth's root if it is not removed. The gums become sore and inflamed from plaque and tartar. The gums become toxic due to bacteria and the poisons they release when:

  • Swollen
  • Tender
  • Infected

You may help prevent issues like gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis) and tooth decay (caries) by taking proper care of your teeth and gums. To assist them in protecting their teeth, you should start early on teaching your kids how to brush and floss.
