Dental Hygiene

 

The main cause of gum disease is bacterial plaque a sticky, colourless film that constantly forms on your teeth. If plaque is not removed, it can turn into a hard substance called calculus, which is very hard and can only be removed during a professional scale and polish at the dentist. Toxins produced by the bacteria in the plaque can cause destruction of the gum and also the bone surrounding the tooth, leaving you at increased risk for periodontal disease. We highly recommend a 6-monthly scale and polish to avoid gum disease.
