Scale & Clean
Plaque is a white sticky film that contains bacteria, which feed on the sugars in the food you eat. As the bacteria feed, they make acids, and these acids attack the protective layer of your tooth. Plaque continuous to form on our teeth over time. If not removed it can cause your gums to become red, swollen and bleed leading to gingivitis, periodontal disease and tooth loss.
Plaque, stain and calculus build up around all your teeth, especially around your lower front teeth. Professional clean and scale will ensure that the plaque, stain and calculus are removed, thereby reducing gum irritation and inflammation.
Dr Henry recommends a 6-monthly professional scale and clean to ensure a healthy teeth and gum.
