Clean teeth are essential for an attractive smile and they also help us to look and feel great about ourselves. No matter how good your brushing is, most of us will get some build-up of tartar.
Tartar can only be removed by a dental professional using specialist equipment. It is a form of deep clean. Brushing and flossing isn’t always enough and regular appointments with a hygienist are needed to maintain your smile.
Tartar build up on your teeth can lead to gum disease which causes tooth loss. Gum disease has been proven to be associated with many medical conditions including heart disease if not treated for a long period of time.
Regular visits to the hygienist not only help to keep your teeth long term but also contribute to your medical wellbeing. For some of us, we would need one session once every 3–6 months.
