Plaquefinder or known as disclosing tablets are chewable tablets made with vegetable dye that reveal plaque in the mouth, clearly showing where extra brushing is needed.

Why do you need to remove plaques?
- Plaque forms on teeth when bacteria in the mouth mix with sugary or starchy foods.
- It can harden into tartar.
- Plaque can lead to cavities, gingivitis (gum disease) and tooth loss.
- Plaque can also develop under the gums on tooth roots and break down the bones that support teeth.
