Fresh Breath & Hygiene
With the best will in the world, it is still impossible to eradicate plaque and prevent the build-up of tartar by simple brushing. Stains on the surface of the teeth can make your overall smile look unattractive. Discolorations on the surface of the teeth may be caused by consuming dark colored beverages or food, intake of certain medications, by smoking/chewing tobacco or by the natural ageing process Tooth decay can also cause stains or discolorations on the teeth surfaces. The combination of food and bacteria in your mouth causes tooth decay, gum disease and eventually, bad breath.
It would be a great disappointment to suffer gum recession, or to loosened teeth because of gum disease due to long-term neglect towards oral hygiene. It would equally be a shame to compromise the effect of an attractive smile with bad breath even in the short term.
The modern professional teeth cleaning is done using ultrasonic vibrations to loosen the deposits (Plaque and Tartar) from the teeth and then flushed away simultaneously with water pressure. This technique is absolutely safe for teeth and gums. The deposits are removed even from the places which are generally impossible to reach during daily brushing.
We strongly recommend visiting your Dentist for a professional dental check-up and cleaning session every 8 to 12 months. If you have any dental prosthetics like porcelain veneers or crown and bridgework you should visit your Dentist at least twice a year to ensure proper oral hygiene and to extend the life of the prosthesis.
