However, they will normally not suffice. Persistent deposits and bacterial films (plaque) located on hard-to-reach dental surfaces call for additional professional dental cleaning performed in the dentist’s practice.Read more

One session every six months as part of the general prophylaxis session is a usual timeframe, if the risk of developing caries or parodontitis is low and the propensity for soft or hard plaque is not very pronounced. It’s different once periodontal pockets exist or there are adverse oral hygiene conditions or a strong propensity for hard, mineralised deposits or ungainly discolorations. In such cases, more frequent sessions may make sense or even be necessary.Read more
