A professional scale and clean is necessary to remove build up of tartar that your daily brushing and flossing just can’t remove.
If left untreated, this tartar can cause decay, gum disease and loss of teeth. Scaling and cleaning involves dislodging and scraping away plaque and tartar from your teeth, including in between them, washing away the build up, cleaning your gums as well as polishing your teeth.
Professional scaling and cleaning provides the thorough care that only a dentist can give you. We recommended our patients have a tooth examination and a scale and clean at least every six months.
