Dental plaque is that yellowish thing   that attaches to the tooth surfaces  when they are not properly cleaned.  This tartar contains a lot of bacteria. Tartar is the main cause of periodontitis   or periodontal disease which is the  leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

To avoid the formation of this  tartar is important to maintain   an adequate oral hygiene and perform periodontal  prophylaxis or dental cleanings periodically.  In the case of this patient it is likely that  she has a psychological or mobility problem   that has prevented her from  brushing her teeth for a long time.
