Prevention of plaque

To reduce plaque, visit your dentist regularly and practice good oral hygiene. Here’s how to remove plaque from teeth: Floss daily. Floss once a day with dental floss to get rid of food and plaque stuck between teeth. Studies show that flossing before brushing teeth removes more plaque. Brush twice a day. Brush your teeth for two minutes with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Brush at least twice a day and preferably after every meal. Chew sugarless gum. If you can’t brush soon after eating or drinking, chew sugar-free gum. Choose a kind that has the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance. Choose healthy foods. Cut back on sugary, starchy foods and drinks. Instead, choose nutritious foods and snacks such as plain yogurt, cheese, raw vegetables or fruit. See your dentist. Get dental checkups and cleanings at least twice a year. Use mouthwash. Rinse daily with an over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription antiseptic mouthwash
