HYGIENE AND PROFESSIONAL CLEAN

Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for a prolonged period of time and cannot be brushed away by the toothbrush. Accumulation of calculus can lead to gum disease which can cause bone loss. Therefore it is important to visit your dentist or hygienist to have a professional clean regularly (usually 6-monthly) to prevent the progression of gum disease.
