Your teeth are continually covered in saliva which contains calcium and other substances. While this helps to strengthen and protect the enamel, but at the same time, calcium deposits generally known as Dental plaque collect. Akin to limescales in a pipe or kettle, the chalky build-up will create conditions for bacteria to grow.

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.
