Dental Plaque

Plaque is a white sticky film that contains bacteria, it uses ingredients in food and saliva to produce an acid which attacks your teeth. Plaque continually forms on our teeth over time, if it is not removed it may cause your gums to become red, swollen and bleed leading to gingivitis, periodontal disease and tooth loss.

Dr Henry at Red Hill Dental Paddington recommends a 6-monthly professional scale and clean to ensure a healthy bright smile.

Plaque, stain and Calculus build up around all your teeth but in particular your lower front teeth.  Professional Clean and Scale will remove the plaque, stain and calculus to help reduce gum irritation, inflammation and a healthy smile.
