During your hygiene appointemnt
When plaque and tartar builds up on your teeth, brushing won’t remove it. These hard deposits must be cleaned professionally by a dentist during your teeth cleaning visit. Your dentist will use special tools in a deep-cleaning process called scaling and root planing. This treatment removes the bacteria-filled plaque and tartar around your gum line and smoothes rough spots on the tooth root where bacteria can collect.
Your dentist will consult with you about the best method for treating any current gum issues as well as future preventative practices.
