“The problem is, you could be the most meticulous person you know when it comes to daily brushing, flossing and rinsing, and you will still, inevitably, leave some bacteria behind. This bacteria gradually hardens to form tartar, which sticks to the surface of your teeth,” explains Dr. Kathrin Trelles, a leading Dubai-based implantologist cosmetic laser dentist.
She adds: “Not only does tartar induce bad breath – an unattractive feature, if there ever was one – but it also attracts more bacteria resulting in a tartar build up. And this build contributes quite heavily to poor dental health.”
Experts, therefore, recommend a hygiene treatment every six months for cleaning of the teeth surfaces. And since food and drinks such as coffee cause staining of teeth over time, the teeth also benefit from periodic polishing, which restores their white natural colour.
