The white film that develops on our teeth is called plaque. Plaque contains bacteria that produce acids. These acids go on to wear down the protective outer layer of our teeth, a.k.a. enamel, causing cavities. Plaque that remains on teeth can harden to become tartar. Tartar, if left to accumulate, can lead to gum disease. Brush your teeth twice-daily, floss every day, limit the consumption of sugary drinks and food, and drink a lot of water to help keep your mouth healthy.
