- Marginal periodont includes the supporting structures surrounding the teeth –gums, ligaments, bone, and tooth root cement. Each teeth in the jaws is located in the wells called alveoli. Periodontal ligament supports the tooth in the bone. The tooth is surrounded by gums. Upon onset, marginal periodont first damages the gums, then damage progresses to the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. Marginal periodontal diseases are caused by micro-organisms in dental plaque. Soft plaque, if not removed, in the long run become mineralized and become hard plaque.
- Dental tartar does not cause periodontal inflammation in itself, but is conducive to the accumulation of soft plaque containing periodontal disease-causing microorganisms.
- Dental tartar can appear above the gum line – it is visible during the check. Dental tartar below the gum line is found when probing with a periodontal probe; sometimes it can show up in X-ray imaging, or found with special tartar detectors.
- Oral hygiene is a very important aspect of health. This includes oral hygiene, dental plaque removal in order to prevent plaque-induced diseases.
- Professional oral hygiene is a procedure to remove soft and hard plaque, and to polish the surfaces of teeth and seals. The purpose of professional oral hygiene is to remove soft and hard dental plaque (tartar), to improve the condition of gums and reduce tooth sensitivity, reviving the oral cavity, and prevent periodontal diseases.
- Personal oral hygiene entails daily oral hygiene performed by each person, using personal hygiene products.
