What is Plaque?
Plaque is the enemy!!! At Brisbane Dental Clinic we will help you fight the battle against plaque, every time we eat or drink are teeth come under attack from nasty mix of bacteria, sugars and starches which combine to form plaque which then attaches its self to our teeth and causes decay of our beautiful teeth.
What is Calculus?
Calculus is basically just hardened plaque, hence why it’s so very important to keep that plaque under control. This calculus build up affects the health of your gum. This calculus forms along the gum line and then can also build up just below the gum line. To remove this stubborn and hard to get at dental calculus a scale and clean is needed by your dentist.
Scale and Clean – How Often?
A scale and clean is recommended every 6 months at Brisbane dental clinic. If you find you are constantly battling against plaque and calculus build up every 3 months may be required.
