Oral hygiene for life
Why do you need professional teeth cleaning?
Although regular brushing and flossing can help keep your teeth and gums clean, it may not be sufficient. Within a few hours after flossing or brushing, a sticky, colorless film called plaque starts to accumulate on the teeth and the gum lines. When combined with the saliva and sugars in the food, this film produces bacteria. The harmful acids released by the bacteria can damage the enamel or the outer covering of the teeth, leading to the formation of tartar which are crusty and hard deposits that cause tooth or gum infections, cavities, or decay.
