Dental Health & Gum Disease: How Is Plaque Detected?

Last updated 6 years ago

Detecting plaque early on and removing it with regular brushing and visits to your dentist are the most powerful ways to prevent gum disease. Plaque is a natural buildup caused by bacteria and food in our mouths, and by using a disclosing solution, you can detect plaque at home for removal.

In this video, you can see how the disclosing solution works to adhere to areas where plaque accumulates, which will give you an idea of where you need to focus your attention while brushing and flossing. Regular oral hygiene will remove the daily buildup of plaque and promote a clean and healthy mouth.

At Central Park West Dentistry, we provide regular cleaning services to all our patients as well as general and cosmetic dental services. Contact us at (212) 579-8885 to schedule an appointment today.
