What is Plaque?

How to Get Rid of Plaque

To prevent the buildup of plaque, be sure to floss once a day with a product like Glide Floss and brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride, anti-plaque toothpaste, like Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste. All Crest Pro-Health toothpastes are triclosan free.

Use a quality toothbrush, such as any manual or rechargeable toothbrush from Oral-B and remember to replace it every three months or as soon as the bristles look worn.

Adding a mouth rinse such as Crest Pro-Health Multi-Protection Rinse to your routine provides 24-hour* protection against plaque and gingivitis, without the burn of alcohol.

Eating well-balanced meals and brushing after snacks will also reduce the formation of plaque. Visit your dentist regularly for oral exams and cleanings, during which he or she will scrape away any accumulated and hardened plaque (otherwise known as tartar) with a special instrument.
* Use 2X per day.
