Prophylaxis (Regular Teeth Cleanings)


Woman in dental chair smiling at her dentist visit in Dallas, TX.Prophylaxis includes a series of procedures where plaque, calculus and stain are removed from all surfaces of the teeth above the gum line. This is done with hand instruments, ultrasonic scalers, and coronal polishing.

The Prophylaxis Procedure

Professional cleanings are just as important to your oral health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, we will remove:
•  Plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth: Bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gum disease, and gingivitis.
•  Tartar from teeth surfaces: Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become hardened on the teeth; its removal requires scaling.
•  Surface stains from teeth through polishing: Surface stains can occur from everyday eating and drinking habits and made worse by other habits, such as tobacco use.
