If not sufficiently cleaned from teeth, plaque hardens to form tartar. Both plaque and tartar harbor oral bacteria. Where oral bacteria accumulate on or near teeth, decay can develop.
Prevention of tooth loss
Tooth loss is a substantial concern for adults, and the risk of tooth loss increases in the person who has gum disease. Beginning as very mild inflammation, gum disease can progress to affect areas deep beneath the gums, weakening the support provided to teeth. As teeth lose stability, they can begin to feel loose and may eventually be lost. Cleaning the teeth and gums of harmful plaque and tartar, the professional cleaning is important in the prevention of gum disease and its resulting tooth loss.
