Plaque is a biofilm- a bacterial community consisting of 1/3 live organisms and 2/3 byproducts (poop)!
The goal is to remove all of the plaque from each surface of each tooth at least once a day to prevent toxic waste buildup. Break up the biofilm!
Each tooth has five surfaces, but your toothbrush, whether electric or hand-operated, cleans only three!
The other two surfaces (the ones between your teeth) should be cleaned on a daily basis. Dental floss and interdental cleaners such as the Stim-U-Dent® are particularly effective.
