A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis.
Prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits include:
Prophylaxis should be performed twice annually if you have healthy gums, but it is not appropriate for periodontitis sufferers. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, we will perform the appropriate therapy which often requires a periodontal maintenance every 3 to 4 months. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but regular visits are a way to effectively halt its progression.
