Dental Prophylaxis, A Professional Dental Cleaning

professional teeth cleanings can help you maintain a healthy smileA 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.

Dental prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease.

The benefits of professional teeth cleaning include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

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 periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but dental prophylaxis is one of the tools Dr. King can use to effectively halt its progression.

Raleigh Dentist Review By Elliott L

Emily does a wonderful job! She explains what she is doing as she is cleaning your teeth. Very professional and caring. Dr. King also checks your mouth after a cleaning. I like that he does not rush into having a procedure done quickly and says that we will watch a certain area in the mouth. Donna is also very welcoming at the front desk and at check out. I would highly recommend this dental practice!

If you’re looking for a great dental practice I definitely recommend Red Oak Dentistry. Just had a much delayed visit today and don’t know why I waited so long. Going to the dentist can be stressful but in this welcoming and friendly practice with their team of wonderful and caring professionals, I felt very comfortable and at ease. My thanks to Dr. King and the team.
