It is generally recommended that patients have a complete teeth cleaning everything six months so that there will not be any type of excessive tartar or plaque buildup on teeth. Even when the very best at-home dental cleaning regimen, some plaque will remain on teeth. When plaque remains on teeth for even a short amount of time, tartar will form. When tarter stays on teeth, it encourages the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. When this happens, tartar, plaque, bacteria, and food debris all gather in the deep pockets and infection forms. At this point you will have gum disease.
