In addition to your routine dental check up, your dentist will usually perform a thorough scale and clean. These thorough professional cleans remove the build up of calculus from around your teeth, which is very important as it keeps your gums healthy and prevents gum disease.
Everyone has calculus. Calculus is formed from the minerals in saliva that slowly deposit on the plaque that grows in our mouth.
Our friendly staff are always happy to give you and your family advice on how to best maintain a healthy smile. Although there are many treatment options now available for severe cases, there is nothing better than your own natural teeth! For this reason we recommend taking the time to look after your smile.
