Plaque is a soft deposit that is tightly attached to the surface of a tooth consisting of microorganisms that multiply in an intercellular matrix when someone neglects the cleanliness of their teeth and mouth. Plaque can be cleaned mechanically or chemically. One of the ways to clean plaque is by consuming apple because it contains tannins which are as astringent and as antiseptic. Through the fiber content that can clean the remaining dental plaque by biting and chewingthe apple, itcan make the apple having the power of self-cleansing. This study aims to analyze the effect of apples as self-cleansing to reduce plaque scoreson Madrasah Ibtidaiyah Tarbiyah Islamiyah students Palembang. The method used in this study isan analytic survey method. There were 60 people used as the samples which consisting of 30 people consuming apples as the intervention group and 30 people not consuming apples as the control group with the total population of the school is 189 people. The sampleswere taken from the non-random population by using the Purposive Sampling Techniquewhich based on a particular consideration made by the researcher after the characteristics of the population have been known. This study shows that the criteria after consuming apples with good categories are 28 people (93.3%) while the criteria after not consuming apples with good categories are 11 people (36.7%).In short, consuming apples is better than not consuming apples after eating a main course.
