WHAT IS PROPHYLAXIS
Tartar and plaque can build up not only on your teeth but also below your gumline. With prophylaxis, or deep dental cleaning, our dentists and team at Dentistry and Braces Group can thoroughly clean under your gumline and in the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Learn more about prophylaxis by calling us today!
Prophylaxis involves a more intensive cleaning routine than regular dental cleanings. Even if you have perfect oral hygiene habits, it is impossible to protect the sections of your teeth that lie below the gumline. Prophylaxis removes the tartar and plaque that builds up below the gumline and in areas of your mouth that are difficult to reach.
Why Get Prophylaxis?
Our dentists will scale your tooth and polish it to make it smoother and less likely to attract bacteria and other harmful deposits in the future. This helps prevent gum disease from worsening and begins the healing process to restore your oral health. Our dentists may also take the opportunity to check your mouth for any other problematic developments below the gumline, such as tooth decay.
If you have periodontal disease, you should receive deep dental cleanings on a regular basis to help prevent more severe damage from gum disease and bone loss in the future. Our dentists will evaluate your mouth to determine the severity of your periodontal disease and recommend a schedule of regular treatments to help keep your mouth free from gum disease.
