If your carpet wouldn’t look dirty would you vacuum it? Probably not. Sadly, when people look in the mirror and don’t see any obvious visible signs of stains on their teeth, they assume that they are clean enough.
If only they knew what hides on the surfaces of the teeth despite visibility! Millions of bacteria cling on our teeth and live in our mouth. The untrained eye usually won’t even notice plaque buildup on the teeth. Luckily, nowadays there are some products that can help to uncover plaque that used to be hard to see, such as plaque disclosing tablets.
