As posted a while back, a buildup of excess plaque can lead to a whole array of problems, including tooth decay, gingivitis, and much more. While many are aware of the consequences of neglecting the basics of oral health, the market is always available for companies to simplify the process for the average consumer.
Now, a new prototype of a toothpaste designed to specifically identify plaque buildup is in its testing stages, with experimental groups reporting successful results. The toothpaste in question, Plaque HD®, identifies and reveals plaque present on teeth, which directed brushing can then remove. The trials produced a statistically significant improvement in plaque levels and overall body inflammation, including a decreased risk of heart disease (which bad oral hygiene has consistently been linked to).
