Dental plaque can be seen on teeth after one to two days with no brushing. Calculus is plaque that has hardened on the teeth and typically occurs within approximately 12-18 days. Calculus cannot be removed by brushing alone and will take the assistance of a dental professional to adequately remove. Consistent appointments ensure we catch any inflammation of the gums, tooth movement, jaw irregularities, and more.
