Dental plaque is a mass of bacteria that grows on surfaces within the mouth such as your teeth. It is a sticky colorless deposit, that turns brown or yellow when it hardens into tartar. Similar to how our plates have a layer of oil and particles of our food after a meal, our teeth have the same oil and food particles which will harden into plaque.

We should remove plaque before that as it can lead to gum disease, inflammation, and even heart disease. Since plaque is colorless, it is difficult to fully remove when brushing. However, our ShoPlaq toothpaste reveals plaque when brushing so you can ensure that your teeth are completely cleaned. Follow the simple steps below when brushing:

  1. Put one drop of toothpaste on a dry toothbrush
  2. Brush your teeth and gums
  3. Rinse your mouth when ready
  4. Check your teeth and gums for pink stains
  5. Gently brush stained area until pink stains are removed
  6. Rinse when finished
