The Importance of 6-month Cleanings by a Dental Hygienist

Posted In: Dental Health

1) Dental plaque and debris build up at and below the gumline.

2) Home dental care will remove surface build-up, but will not remove hard calculous build-up below the gumline.

3) Sub-gingival build-up is the type of calculous that causes periodontal disease, bone loss and eventually loss of teeth.

4) The mouth is very vascular and is connected to other organs in the body. Numerous studies have linked periodontal disease to organ failure such as heart disease.

5) Your hygienist will use an ultra-sonic instrument to remove plaque build-up that can not be removed with routine home care.
