Professional Teeth Cleaning and Dental Check Ups in North Balwyn, Melbourne
In addition to daily brushing and flossing, we recommend that you visit your dentist every six months for a thorough examination and clean to help you maintain good dental health and hygiene and assist with early detection of any potential dental problems.
During your six-monthly visit, we will usually carry out a 'scale and clean' to remove any tartar (calculus) from the tooth surfaces. Plaque (bacteria) builds up on teeth and cannot be removed by brushing. If the plaque is not removed it forms tartar, which may cause tooth decay, gum disease or even lead to tooth loss.
