A buildup of plaque (biofilm) can harden into dental tartar. If left untreated, it can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.

Here is how:

Bacteria in plaque release acids as they feed upon sugars. These acids break down the tooth enamel, causing tooth decay.

The bacteria also cause enzymes to damage connective gum tissue and bone, causing periodontal disease.

Knowing the harmful effects of plaque buildup and why it's important to remove plaque is key to optimal oral health!

The tools used to remove the buildup are metal and ultrasonic instruments that have dangerously sharp points—allowing dental hygienists to remove every bit of plaque and tartar from your tooth surface and underneath your gumline.
