Caption: Plaque removal. Dentist using a high-pressure water jet (lower right) to remove plaque from a patient's teeth. The dental nurse is using a suction tube (lower right) to remove liquid from the patient's mouth. Plaque, a combination of saliva, food particles and bacteria, forms a layer on the surface of teeth that can cause gum inflammation (gingivitis) and tooth decay (caries), if allowed to build up.
