A Healthy Smile
One of the most important things you can do to ensure a healthy smile is to maintain good oral hygiene. Without this maintenance, bacteria are allowed to fester in your mouth, causing decay, infection and disease. Part of good oral hygiene is attending regular appointments with our dentist to have your mouth examined and professionally cleaned.
A Deeper Clean
Unfortunately, no matter how well you keep your oral hygiene, there are areas of your mouth that you simply cannot clean on your own. Fortunately, our dentist can clean these areas with a treatment called prophylaxis. Prophylaxis provides a deeper clean than flossing, brushing or even regular professional cleanings. The objective of this treatment is to remove any tartar or plaque that has had the chance to build up below your gumline and in the difficult to reach areas of your mouth.
Fight Gum Disease
For patients with gum disease, or periodontal disease, prophylaxis is a treatment you should receive on a regular basis in order to prevent any more severe effects. If you are in this situation, our dentist will examine your mouth and create a treatment plan for you that will help keep your mouth healthy.
