Did you know it only takes 24 hours for remaining plaque to turn into tartar? Regular brushing and flossing help remove plaque and tartar but hard to reach places always require more attention. After your periodontal cleaning treatment has been completed, your dentist will likely recommend regular cleanings around 4 times a year. These cleanings will include:
Examination of diagnostic x-rays
Examination of existing restorations
Examination of decay
Oral cancer screening
Oral hygiene recommendations
Proper oral hygiene is essential to keeping periodontal disease under control. Call us to book your next cleaning!
