It is important to maintain a 3-6 month frequency for dental cleanings. Based on your dental history and current dental health you and your hygienist will make a plan especially for you.
Tartar (hard plaque) hardens approximately 90 days after forming. Tartar attracts and contains bacteria that can affect your overall height of your jaw bone. (The bone that holds in your teeth).
Other benefits of regular dental cleanings include; fresh breath, less bleeding while brushing, and whiter looking teeth!
