What is DentGroup Total Care?

Why do I need DentGroup Total Care?

Plaque accumulation is high especially at gums and interdental spaces, as a result of incorrect chewing habits and improper teeth brushing. By time, this plaque turns into calcified tartar and discoloration starts to occur. This type of tartar is the main cause of gingival diseases. Patients are unable to eliminate such plaque and discoloration by themselves. Therefore, tartar buildup gradually increases. Along with tartar buildup comes oral malodor, loose teeth, bleeding gums, and unpleasant brown discoloration in the mouth. In order to avoid these, it is recommended to have total oral care by a dentist at regular intervals.
