Even the best of brushers have ‘hard to reach areas’. Plaque can build up and harden in the places we repeatedly miss, making it impossible to remove at home.
A dedicated dental hygiene appointment will ensure all hardened plaque and calculus are removed, protecting your gums from bacteria and inflammation.
Failing to remove the deposits from above and below the gum line leave your teeth at risk of advancing gum disease. It can begin to destroy your tooth’s supporting gum and bone structures – which can eventually lead to wobbly teeth.
With gum disease being the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, we believe a preventative approach and commitment to routine dental hygiene appointments is vital.
