What is a dental prophylaxis? Or in other words, what is a dental cleaning? A dental cleaning is an important part of a complete oral health regimen. Dental cleanings play an important role in preventing cavities, gum disease and tooth loss that can be caused by dental disease. By having regular dental cleanings, you can potentially prevent the need for tooth fillings or gum disease treatment.
It is recommended that you get dental cleanings every six months, at the minimum, with your dentists at Pro Dental Centers. During your dental prophylaxis, a hygienist will x-ray and check your teeth for any decay or plaque. Then as part of the dental cleaning the professionals at Pro Dental Centers will remove plaque, calculus and stains from the crowns, roots and enamel of your teeth. Dental cleanings are a preventative measure for avoiding periodontal disease which could have effects such as dental pain or tooth loss. By not removing plaque and other irritants from your teeth, you increase the risk these deposits building up and forming dental tartar. If left alone, dental tartar can develop into periodontal disease which can lead to tooth loss.
Dental Prophylaxis is essential for several reasons including dental health, cosmetic and dental education purposes.
