Having clean teeth is a symbol of confidence. It has been seen time and again that people who are confident of how they smile and look are more confident than others holistically. There used to be times when discolored or difficult to clean teeth were left at its state. The deposition of a tartar layer or plaque is a common problem due to which teeth appear discolored and become a matter of shaming for many. No matter how well one tries to brush them off they stick around. Your teeth are continuously bathed in saliva which is rich in amylase and calcium, which naturally protects your teeth but when there is a deposition of plaque (thin layer over teeth with over thousands types of bacteriain a protein matrix) those natural methods are just not enough. Tartar is the tough or calcified form of plaque and is a very common deposition which affects oral health. If one lets the growth of tartar be unobstructed, the bacteria might soon reach out to the gums and cause infections. Scaling and Polishing of teeth is the way out of this problem. This method cleans the film deposited on the teeth and leaves them clean and clear. This in the medical field is called prophylaxis which in Greek means “To prevent beforehand”, which itself is an indicator of how if not taken care, gum diseases are inevitable.
