Ancestor:Descendants:

Microplaque is a species of microscopic bacteria that eats the left over food matter in creatures' mouths. They are just single cells but can grow into large colonies covering the surface of the teeth and gums in a clear "biofilm". This can lead to gum disease and tooth decay in its host.
