Dental Prophylaxis

A woman having her teeth cleanedA dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Dental prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and enfermedad periodontal.

Dental prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease.

At times, if there has been a gap in your dental care you may be developing periodontitis or gum disease.  That simply means that an infection exists in the gum tissue that needs a more involved cleaning. We would see you for two cleaning appointments.  Once we have thoroughly cleaned the teeth and gum you come a little more frequently than the usual 6 months, so we can help stop any progression of gum disease.  See our Periodontal Maintenance tab for more detail regarding this.

The benefits of professional teeth cleaning include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Por desgracia, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria, and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, cálculo, and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

Professional dental cleaning can be performed at our office. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but dental prophylaxis is one of the tools Drs. Jason and Ken can use to effectively halt its progression.

I have had some very BAD dentists, and actually have PTSD from former dentists performing poorly on my teeth. Dr.. Ence really is very calming, his mannerisms are so low-key that he helps calm my nerves, but they offer alternatives for nerves when I have major (to me anyways) procedures, besides my “Dental” playlist on my iPod.
