Professional clean is therefore recommended every six months, as it involves removing the plaque build-up (a soft, sticky film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that eventually lead to gum diseases.
While you may think that brushing regularly at home is sufficient to keep your teeth healthy, but larger pieces of tartar will require ultrasonic instruments to be removed. Furthermore, dentists have specialised equipment like scalers and curettes to ensure a complete clean and polish.
