If you’re human and you have teeth,you have plaque. Plaque is a germ-laden film that clings to your teeth.
The invisible layer is filled with bacteria that can cause problems in your mouth,including cavities and gum disease,which can both lead to tooth loss.
Because plaque is invisible, its hard to know how much of it you have removed by brushing and flossing. Fortunately, drug stores sell disclosing tablets that can show you how much plaque is left on your teeth when you finish your homecare regimen.
People of all ages who want to avoid cavities and periodontal disease can use disclosing tablets. They’re yet another weapon in the battle against dental disease.
