Dental Cleaning (Prophylaxis) Rochester NY

Benefits of Professional Teeth Cleaning

A dental prophylaxis is a treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. It’s an important treatment to help stop the progression of periodontal disease.

The benefits 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 brushing and flossing routine, it can be difficult to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from the teeth and gums. The experienced dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment removes damaging deposits.
•  A healthier-looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can reduce the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
•  Fresher breath. Bad breath (halitosis) is sometimes an indicator of advancing periodontal disease.
•  We recommend that professional teeth cleaning be performed twice a year as a preventative measure. Those with active or treated gum disease may need to be seen for prophylaxis as often as every three months.
