We suggest everybody has their teeth professionally cleaned every six months. Some people may benefit from more frequent cleanings and as part of their preventative dental care plan. This may be the case if you have any medical conditions that affect your immune system or are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease.
During an oral hygiene appointment, your teeth will be carefully scaled and polished. Scaling removes all the hardened plaque or calculus from your teeth. This tends to build up around the gum line and in between your teeth, and it consists of bacteria that produce toxins which will infect and inflame your gums. By removing calculus, we can help your gums remain strong and healthy. Once all calculus is removed, we can polish your teeth and by the end of this treatment your teeth should feel beautifully clean.
