Since we were children, we develop the habit of daily brushing, flossing and rinsing to keep teeth healthy, protect our health and share the pleasant sensation of a smile.
But this usual practice can be insufficient and misleading, because stains will always find a way to adhere to the teeth and tartar will always find a way to settle between the teeth and the gum.
Stains are caused by substances such as coffee and tobacco and tartar is made up of colonies of bacteria that clump together on the tooth, are covered by minerals and, as they harden, become difficult to remove.
The surprising progress of tartar is explained in that it establishes itself between the tooth and the gum, from food debris and the contribution of minerals contained in the saliva, in an area that is difficult to access for the toothbrush and dental floss.
The presence and multiplication of bacteria can cause diseases such as gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), halitosis (bad breath) or periodontitis, which affects the tissues that support the teeth.
Inattention to periodontitis can lead to loss of affected teeth.
Tartar is such a solid substance and adheres to the tooth in such a way that only professional instruments can remove it.
More than a healthy habit, a periodic dental cleaning is a necessity, to maintain optimal dental health. The regularity depends on the hygiene habits of each person, although professional cleaning is recommended between one and two times a year.
The cleaning work is quick and painless. It is carried out with manual or ultrasonic instruments to loosen the bacterial plaque and, with the teeth being freed from it, it is polished and fluoride applied to protect the enamel.
In Costa Rica Cero Caries we promote a collaborative project that allows our members to enjoy a service of 10 years of dental treatment, for each membership.
In the specific case of dental cleaning, the member can enjoy the service once a year, for ten years, through a membership that, without a doubt, is a much more favorable price as opposed to doing it independently.
