Dental cleaning (also known as scaling) is the most common procedure done in a dental office by a dentist. Everybody needs to have their teeth checked out every few months for signs of gum disease, plaque accumulation and tartar build up. Regardless of how strict their oral hygiene regimen is, most people start to develop tartar (also known as calculus) every 6 to 12 months, and would need a consultation from their dentist for its removal.

For patients with relatively healthy gums, we recommend that you visit our office every 6 months to receive this preventive treatment.
