Dentistry Expert Dr. Jonice Thompson Withanachchi: Calculus
Dr. Jonice Thompson Withanachchi
How soon can plaque turn into calculus?
Calculus formation can begin as soon as 24-48 hours from inadequate plaque removal. This can attract more calculus and cause inflammation, and eventually lead to bigger problems in the future if not taken care of! Don't let it build up! Make sure to get professional cleaning regularly and see your dentist regularly as well!
