Hygiene services include a thorough scale and polish of your teeth to remove plaque and tartar from above and below the margin of your gums.
Signs of poor oral hygiene include:
- Bad breath
- Bleeding gums
- Receeding gums
- Loose teeth
Poor oral hygiene and gum disease may increase your risk to other health complications including heart disease, diabetes and stroke. To maintain healthy teeth and gums, it is recommended you get a scale and polish at least twice a year.
