    About oral health care

    What is plaque?


    Plaque is the build-up of bacteria on the teeth. It’s a common oral health problem, usually caused by a lack of brushing or poor brushing technique. Luckily, if it’s caught early, it’s easy to get rid of.

    How do I treat plaque?


    Once it’s started to grow on your teeth, plaque is still easy to remove for up to two days. Longer, more frequent brushing with Philips Sonicare will get rid of it up to 7x more effectively than a manual toothbrush.
