Teeth cleaning is a procedure done to remove unwanted and harmful bacteria, plaque, tartar and stains from the teeth to protect you from any future dental problems. This is done because daily brushing your teeth does not remove all the bacteria's on the teeth and this can cause cavity problems and damage your teeth. This cleaning significantly helps to reduce tartar buildup and only a professional teeth cleaning session can maximise your oral hygiene health.

Tartar is the hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now attached to the tooth surface. Calculus/plaque forms on above and below the gum line and can be removed with special professional cleaning.
Plaque is a sticky layer, almost invisible that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce poisons that inflame the gums and this inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
