Understanding Prophylaxis

Prophylaxis is a routine dental procedure that involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from the surfaces of your teeth and along the gumline. This process helps prevent the buildup of harmful bacteria and maintains the health of your gums and teeth. Prophylaxis is typically recommended every six months as part of your regular dental check-up and hygiene routine.

The Prophylaxis Process

  1. Comprehensive Examination: Before beginning the cleaning procedure, our dental hygienist will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health, including evaluating the condition of your teeth, gums, and supporting structures. This allows us to identify any areas of concern and customize your cleaning treatment accordingly.
  2. Plaque and Tartar Removal: Using specialized dental instruments, our dental hygienist will carefully remove plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of your teeth, paying close attention to hard-to-reach areas such as between the teeth and along the gumline. This helps prevent cavities and gum disease and promotes overall oral health.
  3. Polishing: After plaque and tartar removal, your teeth will be polished to remove surface stains and create a smooth, shiny finish. This not only enhances the appearance of your smile but also makes it more difficult for plaque to adhere to your teeth between cleanings.
  4. Fluoride Treatment (Optional): Depending on your oral health needs, a fluoride treatment may be applied to strengthen your tooth enamel and provide added protection against cavities. This is particularly beneficial for individuals at higher risk of tooth decay.
  5. Oral Hygiene Education: Our dental hygienist will provide you with personalized oral hygiene instructions and tips to help you maintain a healthy smile between dental visits. This may include proper brushing and flossing techniques, dietary recommendations, and the use of dental products tailored to your needs.
