Plaque is a sticky layer of bacterial buildup which accumulates on your teeth over the course of a day. If you don't remove it daily, it will build up and harden over time. Certain foods cause more plaque than others. Sugary foods and starches are the main culprits for releasing plaque-causing acids in your mouth.
Plaque also produces substances that irritate the gums, causing redness and bleeding. If left untreated, the bones around the teeth can decay, and your teeth may fall out. Daily brushing and flossing greatly help to remove plaque buildup, which is why brushing twice per day is strongly recommended.
