Plaque is a slime that forms naturally on our teeth, a complex bio-film that absorbs the sugar in the foods we eat and ferments it, producing acids that attack the tooth enamel and cause decay. If it’s not removed, the minerals in saliva act to harden the bio-film into tartar – this is the stuff your hygienist picks off. If tartar remains on your teeth, it attracts yet more plaque and the long-term result is gum disease.
Mouthwashes aren’t the answer, says Thomson. “You need to disrupt the plaque physically.”

Maintaining oral health means following advice so familiar it’s almost boring: Brush for two minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Clean between teeth once a day with floss, a small brush or pick. And visit your dentist regularly. (The American Dental Association, commenting on recent reports that evidence doesn’t support flossing, says that doesn’t mean such cleaning isn’t effective.)

"There’s no telling how much I’ve spent on dental floss in my life. I’m not giving it up, but I will feel a little less guilty if I only do it once a day now, instead of five times."
Well... there's another way to look at it :)

"Remember, #floss is simply recommended as a mechanical cleaning instrument, just like a toothbrush. It moves between teeth in the interdental space, disrupting food debris and bacterial plaque that a brush can’t reach. Keeping it simple and with few exceptions; a clean tooth is a healthy tooth."
