Why do I need a scale and clean?

Going to the dentist for a scale and clean is important because it allows teeth and gums to be healthy and strong. The dentist goes around each individual tooth looking for plaque and hard build up called tartar which he removes from teeth. When gums bleed it is because there is bacteria on the teeth that has not been removed. With regular brushing and visiting the dentist frequently (every six months), teeth and gums can be kept in optimal condition.
