There is a lot to like about a scale and clean – that feeling of invigoration, fresher breath and the removal of staining and calculus.
Any build-up of calculus, or plaque, can cause health problems if not removed. Bacteria living in the plaque release acids that can weaken tooth enamel and increase the risk of tooth decay.
Routine professional cleaning, in conjunction with a full check-up, is the solution to maintain the health of your teeth and gums and thus avoid dental emergencies. This treatment is always more effective when not left too long; every six months tends to be ideal. We ask you to please allow an hour for your next scale and clean appointment.
