We know maintaining healthy gums are an important part of your oral health. When plaque builds up on your gums, it can harden over time leading to tartar or calculus build-up. This build up can irritate the gums leading to inflammation and sometimes infections. Untreated tartar build-ups can lead to gum disease called periodontitis and teeth can be lost in this way.
Our experienced dentists will help rid of these build-ups above the gums by using an advanced ultra-sonic scaler. Tartar deposits under the gums may require additional treatment and our dentists will advise you at your examination appointment.
