Prophylaxis is the technical term for a professional deep teeth cleaning that leaves you feeling fresh and ready to conquer the world! Getting your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year helps prevent cavities and gum disease, it freshens your breath, helps stop tooth loss, brightens your smile, and can boost your overall health.
The cleaning is started with a physical exam of your mouth by a dental hygienist to check for any signs of gingivitis or other concerns. Your hygienist will then use a small scaler guided by a small mirror to remove any plaque or tartar you may have on your teeth.
Next, your hygienist will brush your teeth with a gritty toothpaste to ensure your teeth are completely free of tartar. After the deep cleaning, the appointment will end with an expert flossing session. The entire process is easy and painless and your teeth will feel squeaky clean.
Getting your teeth professionally cleaned every six months will ensure plaque does not start building up on your teeth to the point where it turns into tartar. If it does, the risk of developing gum disease increases. All in all, professional cleanings twice a year will prevent problems altogether.
