At Illume we don’t speak merely of scaling and polishing – there is so much more to your regular recalls than that.
We know that the truth is that having us simply scale and polish your teeth every six months is not necessarily going to ensure freedom from dental disease and teeth for life. We also know that dental diseases are a complex interaction between many factors, some of which can be controlled or eliminated but some of which are specific to an individual’s genetic make up over which we have no control. Both gum disease and tooth decay can vary in their activity at different times in our lives and even vary in different parts of the same mouth. It is also widely believed that gum disease in particular can have an effect on overall health.
