Plaque and tartar can build-up even if you brush twice a day and floss regularly. Accumulated plaque eventually hardens to form tartar (aka calculus) which is impossible to remove with simple brushing. If your teeth have developed tartar deposits, they can trigger serious health issues. Tooth cleaning is needed not just for maintaining good oral health but also to keep your entire body free from diseases. Professional cleaning of teeth is mandatory every 6 months or annually, as recommended by your dentist.

Tooth cleaning is imperative:
•To identify the early signs of periodontal diseases
•To prevent loss of teeth due to periodontal (gums and underlying bone surrounding the teeth) diseases
•To remove superficial stains like those caused by tea, coffee, smoking, tobacco chewing, etc.
•To prevent bleeding from gums and inflammation
•To prevent diseases that arise from the build-up of plaque and tartar
•Detect dental problems before they become major oral complications
•To reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Professional tooth cleaning is essential to monitor the development of dental diseases that can invite costly dental complications if not treated in time.
