Many patients may believe that brushing their teeth twice daily for a duration of two minutes is enough to keep the build-up of plaque and tartar at bay, however unfortunately this is not always the case. Plaque and tartar when left untreated can unfortunately lead to the development of oral diseases and infections (such as gum disease to name just one common example) which is why it's so vital to remove this before it progresses using a scale and polish at our surgery.
