Plaque is a bacterial film that covers the teeth and gums. It

and floss to get the tartar and plaque between the teeth.
There is also a plaque that can block arteries.

What removes plaque?
Brushing and brushing alone is the only way to remove dental plaque! Supplements like toothpaste mouthwash etc may help strenghten your teeth but there is no way to completely remove plaque without mechanical abrasion of the plaque! Plaque is adherant to the tooth surface and there is currently nothing on the Market to remove plaque chemically. You'll be a rich man/woman if you find one... :-)
What difference between dental plaque and bacterial plaque?
Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol , calcium, and other substances found in the blood. When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. Plaque narrows the arteries and reduces blood flow to your heart muscle. It also makes it more likely that blood clots will form in your arteries. Blood clots can partially or completely block blood flow. :) I'm not sure if that's the right plaque, but it's a plaque...
