Taking care of your mouth involves a lot of things, from brushing and flossing to removing tartar.
Our oral hygiene professionals are ready to provide competent advice to patients, whether it''s a routine or a specific issue. Professional oral hygiene treatment includes not only the removal of tartar, but also instructions on how to brush your teeth better and more thoroughly if necessary. Tartar is essentially fossilised minerals that dissolve from saliva.
Too much tartar can be a source of bacteria, so it is recommended to have it removed once every six months. The extent and amount of deposits can vary from person to person, depending on both predisposition and the quality of individual oral care.
Black discolouration in thin streaks due to smoking is not tartar. Like tartar, it cannot be removed by brushing and some discolouration cannot be removed by professional oral hygiene. Professional tartar removal by a dental hygienist is carried out using ultrasonic equipment and is completed with a tooth polish.
There may be some minor sensitivity after the treatment, but it basically gives a pleasant, fresh effect.
