Dental plaque or plaque psoriasis affects millions of Americans and is caused by bacteria eating leftover food in the mouth from not brushing and flossing. If this plaque is not removed it will cause gingivitis (gum disease) which is inflamed gums. If plaque is not removed it creates tartar buildup which leads to periodontitis (periodontal disease) and eventually the loss of teeth over time. This is why it is very important to maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
