Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)

Teeth Cleaning

Dental prophylaxis is performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and prevent the progression of gingivitis and gum disease. The benefits include:

  • Plaque and tartar removal, both on the surface of the teeth and below the gumline where bacteria can lead to gum disease
  • A healthier looking smile that is polished to perfection
  • Fresher breath, which is often the result of periodontal disease and bacteria or food particles that may hide below the gumline

Both the American Dental Association and Dr. Carbonell recommend that your teeth be professionally cleaned twice a year to prevent tooth decay or gum disease. More frequent visits may be suggested for patients with gum disease.
