THE PLAQUE STORY

Dental plaque is a soft, sticky film that forms on the teeth EVERY DAY! It is made up mostly of BACTERIA, which are ALIVE, just like we are alive. Part of being alive is that the bacteria eat, digest, and metabolize their food and excrete the waste products.

Toxicwaste What’s more, the waste from some of the bacteria is TOXIC WASTE, and these toxins can cause tooth decay and gum disease when present in large enough quantities. AND, if the plaque isn’t removed, the bacteria can eventually invade the gum tissue and enter the blood stream, where they can travel to other parts of the body and lead to more serious health problems. bloodstream
whichway In fact, some studies have shown that heart disease, strokes, and premature births may be linked to oral bacteria! But all of these health issues can be positively affected through proper daily preventive dental care. All you have to do is clean this soft, sticky film off your teeth EVERY DAY to prevent buildup! And, in case you need more incentive, maintaining healthy teeth ensures you of a CLEAN, BRIGHT SMILE that will last. cosmeticway
