Tooth cleaning is very important as maintaining proper oral hygiene can preserve our teeth and extended their duration.
It is commonfor pigmentation from food and drinks to linger on tooth surface and this is a major cause of pathological process and it represents an aesthetic deficiency.
The most common examples of pigmentation are found among smokers and persons drinking lots of coloured beverages like tea and coffee. They are very difficult or impossible to remove with a toothbrush. They appear as dark brown or black stains on the surface of a tooth, generally more intensively close to the gums.
The teeth become increasingly yellow, full of tartar and plaque, and this increases the number of bacteria in the mouth which represent danger for the entire organism. Tartar is represented by hard deposits on teeth which are a result of mineralization of plaque, i.e. those hard white or yellowishdeposits that occur in the place of connection of teeth and the gingiva.
They are most commonly noticeable in the inner side of lower front teeth.
During regular check-ups, the dentist can notice different states of teeth that require different professional cleaning methods.
