Why do you need prophylaxis (teeth cleaning by a professional)?
The professional teeth cleaning removes the plaque buildup, the tartar ( calculus) and pigmentation.
Prophylaxis must be done in a dentist office by a dentist who should be able to give guidance and orientation to diary oral health( gum and teeth) procedures.
What is bacteria plaque/ dental biofilm?
Is a plaque buildup by bacterias, rests of food and saliva between gum and teeth. They use the sugars and carbohydrates as subtract, and the resultant acids from the digestion process will be the responsible ones for the dissolution and tooth destruction. Plaque that builds up along the gum-line and between teeth in hard to reach places can be harmful to the gums and bone. The bacteria in plaque produce toxic products, that can irritate the gums causing them to become red, swell and bleed - the signs typically associated with gingivitis.
It is important to recognize gingivitis because it is reversible. Unnoticed, ignored or simply left untreated gingivitis, can sometimes progress to a more advanced stage called periodontal disease. It is easy to see why brushing and cleaning between teeth and flossing, or other forms of plaque removal, are essential to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
What is the tartar dental (calculus)?
It is caused by precipitation of minerals from saliva and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) in plaque on the teeth. This process of precipitation kills the bacterial cells within dental plaque, but the rough and hardened surface that is formed provides an ideal surface for further plaque formation. The use of brush and floss are not enough to remove tartar. Tartar can only be removed during a regular dental prophylaxis.
