      How do you prevent plaque build-up?

      Tooth plaque can be defined as the sticky film which you find starts forming when there is bacteria in your mouth and these start to build up on your teeth. When plaque is there for too long, you will find that a host of problems follow. This includes weak teeth, decay, gum disease and teeth being eaten into.

      Brush at least twice

      The ideal thing would be to brush your teeth after every meal. However, this is not always practically possible. Aim to brush your teeth well in the morning after you wake up and the night before you go to sleep. Choose a toothbrush with soft bristles, one with hard bristles can be quite harsh on your gums.

      When you brush your teeth, make sure that the brush is kept at a 45 degree angle. Go for gentle circular strokes and thoroughly brush both inside and outer surfaces of your teeth. Spend at least two minutes on brushing. Don’t forget to brush your tongue to scrape away any bacteria and also help freshen your breath.

      Clean between your teeth

      Plaque can build up in the spaces between your teeth as well, so clean them well. Floss at least once a day.

      Use mouthwash

      Mouthwash is a good bet to help loosen plaque and this makes it easier to remove. Choose one that works for you by discussing it with your doctor.

      Visit your dentist regularly

      Most of your plaque prevention happens during your everyday routine. However, it’s still very important that you don’t neglect your dental appointments and see your dentist twice a year, at least. This is because even if you do a great job with cleaning there could be some problem spots that you may be unable to reach properly or have overlooked. Your dentist will also spot any other problems and nip them in the bud.
