A:Once you have plaque deposits you cannot remove them by brushing. You have to get scaling done by a competent dentist. After that proper brushing & flossing can help in preventing build up of plaque again. Use any standard toothpaste available in the market. It is mainly the mechanical action of the toothbrush that is important in keeping the teeth clean.
