Calculus is the dental plaque found in the back and front of the teeth that turns into tartar which leads to gingivitis, bad breath and all sorts of gum diseases. Our dentists in Dubai recommend to all patients pay some visits to our modern dental clinics in Dubai, in order to receive specific dental treatments for such problems. The plaque needs to be removed from time to time (usually once in a year) because this way you will avoid many dental problems. As we all know, a bad oral hygiene, which implies lots of plaque and tartar will lead to tooth loss. In these cases, the dentist will suggest you dental implants.

What you need to know about plaque and tartar

Plaque is a combination of bacteria and many substances they discharge, which create a biofilm on the teeth. If not removed properly with brushing and flossing the teeth, the acids from the bacteria will damage the tooth enamel and will make holes, also known as cavities. The plaque turns into tartar above the gum line, which leads to bleeding gums, gingivitis, and toothache.

People who develop plaque and tartar do not consider the major importance of the regularly brushing the teeth with fluoride toothpaste. Flossing the teeth is also mandatory because pieces of food might be blocked between the teeth, creating acid and injuring the tooth enamel.

Reasons why plaque and tartar develop into the mouth

First of all, the sugars from the food we eat turn into acids and attack the surface of the teeth. The Dubai dentist reminds to all patients the importance of brushing and flossing the teeth, in order to avoid the development of plaque and tartar. These significant habits will maintain a good oral health, the plaque won’t develop and the gingivitis won’t affect you. In our modern dental clinics in Dubai, you can receive many dental treatments after a proper examination of your oral health.

How do we fight plaque and tartar

The daily brushing and flossing the teeth are necessary habits you need to consider if you wish to have strong and healthy teeth, without any sign of plaque and tartar. It is recommended to brush the teeth twice per day and to floss before you go to bed. You need to take about two minutes to properly brush the teeth, considering every spot and cleaning also the tongue. Flossing the teeth will help you eliminate all the remains from the food and you will avoid the plaque build-up. Our dentists recommend fluoride toothpaste and electric toothbrushes for 100% perfect cleaning of the denture.

A healthy diet instead of snacks, sweets, and many other harmful foods is suggested if you wish to avoid sugars and acids which attach the teeth. Besides brushing and flossing, you should consider scheduling some dental visits because the doctor can examine your dental health and can offer prevention treatments.
