Periodontitis is the main cause of tooth loss in adults.
Bacterial plaque plays a crucial role in the development of periodontitis. That is why professional tooth cleaning is so important in the prevention of this chronic disease.
Because the frequent removal of all plaque, even in hardly accessible regions, prevents the formation of dental calculus and thus eliminates a central precondition for the development of periodontitis.
