Plaque is a yellowish layer that builds up on your teeth if regular tooth brushing is not done twice a day. Plaque contains germs which are capable of causing cavities and gum disease. If not removed, it can slowly harden to form tartar. At our clinic, the dental hygienist will do teeth cleaning (scaling and root polishing) to remove:
- Plaque (yellowish layer)
- Tartar (hard yellowish to black deposits)
Also, they will show correct tooth brushing and flossing methods so that you can have a healthy mouth.
