WHAT IS TARTAR REMOVAL?
Tartar removal is an effective way to minimize tooth bleeding, swelling gums, receding gums, reduce discomfort caused by gingivitis, prevent tooth loss and bone resorption, and bring a confident smile. After every 6 months teeth need to be cleaned, plaque removed from the root and polished teeth surface. Food, saliva and bacteria accumulate to form plaque on the tooth surface. Some time later, the plaque hardens to form tartar, which causes gingivitis and, if left untreated, can lead to periodontitis, resulting in loose teeth. Healthy gums are pale pink in color, firm. When inflamed, red, swollen gums bleed easily. Teeth scraping and tooth polishing is essential to prevent gums from being inflamed and damaged. Tartar removal can be done manually, mechanically, or a combination of both.
