Every year, the number of visits to dentists increases, mainly due to the violation of oral hygiene requirements by patients. One of the consequences of neglecting simple hygiene standards is the formation of hard plaque on the tooth surface, which a dentist can only remove. Ignoring the problem is fraught with bad breath and problems with the gastrointestinal tract, heart, kidneys, and jawbones. Dental Tooth Calculus in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah is becoming a popular treatment nowadays.
What is Calculus?
This is a hard Plaque that was not removed from the teeth promptly. It always appears in the form of a thin layer containing dietary fiber, saliva, and remnants of the vital activity of microorganisms. It usually occurs where the tooth enters the gum.
The process of converting plaque to tartar begins 20 hours after the plaque appears, and its calcification is usually completed in two weeks.
- Supragingival: This type of calculus on the teeth can be easily removed with a unique tool in the dental office, with a pasty and low viscosity.
- Subgingival: This residue is not found independently, as the collections are located under the gum. The disease is diagnosed during a preventive examination by a doctor using unique technologies.
Quick Tip! Bacteria that are inevitably present in the human mouth are opportunistic pathogens. If their number does not exceed acceptable limits, there is no problem. However, if it does, it will lead to solid deposits.
The chief outcome of the treatment will be an overall improvement of the oral cavity; the layer of hardened plaque with bacteria and their metabolic products will be removed from the teeth.

Differences between Tartar and Plaque:
Plaque is a soft, sticky film that forms on the teeth and under the gums as bacteria grow throughout the day.
Tartar forms on teeth if plaque is not removed. If plaque remains on the teeth for too long, tartar will be difficult to form and much more difficult to remove with the help of a dentist.
It is dangerous mainly because it leads to the formation of caries, as well as discoloration and sensitivity of the teeth, gum caries and periodontal disease.
Why do you Need the Treatment?
The problem is not noticeable because the plaque is located on the inside of the dentition. If the disease is ignored, tartar provokes the development of gingivitis and periodontitis. These diseases tend to disrupt the tooth’s structure and lead to their loss.
It is an obstacle to filling and prosthetics of teeth. Before installing a filling or implant, you must first clean the teeth from the stone at the dentist’s appointment.
It is recommended to clean and remove tartar at least once every six months.
If tartar has already formed, you should not try to remove it yourself, and any unprofessional mechanical impact can damage the enamel and infect the gums. The following treatment options are available for removal at a dentist’s office:
