A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Dental prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease and an effective procedure for keeping the oral cavity in proper health.
Professional dental cleaning can be performed at our office. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for patients who are diagnosed with periodontitis. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but dental prophylaxis is one of the tools Drs. Toft and Hetrick can use to effectively halt its progression.
