Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)
A dental prophylaxis is actually a cleaning procedure performed by the hygienist or dentist to thoroughly and minutely clean your teeth and gums. Prophylaxis is a vital dental procedure for preventing the advancement of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Prophylaxis is truly an effective treatment in keeping your dental cavity in check and stopping the development of gum disease.
The benefits include:
We perform Prophylaxis daily at our dental office. We advise you to get your prophylaxis done twice every year as a preventative measure but should be done after every 3-4 months for those suffering from periodontitis. It should be kept in mind that gum disease cannot be entirely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the solutions Dr. Nash can use to effectively stop its advancement.
