Dental prophylaxis or regular teeth cleaning is an important treatment that stops the progression of gingivitis and periodontal diseases.
Teeth cleaning and dental prophylaxis is highly effective. It’s important to keep your teeth in proper health and to be proactive in stopping the progression of gum disease. We recommend that our patients see us for regular visits to ensure that we reduce the risk of staining, plaque build up and any periodontal diseases.
The Benefits of Teeth Cleaning at Gentle Family Dentistry:
1. Plaque removal. Plaque buildup happens to everyone, this is why it’s important to keep to regular visits. Without proper cleanings, this can result in serious periodontal problems. The buildup occurs both above and below the gum lines. Unfortunately, even with routine home brushing and flossing, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from your teeth and gum lines. The experienced eye of Gentle Family Dentistry, or hygienist is necessary to catch prevent potentially damaging buildup.
2. Have a healthier and happier smile. Stained teeth are a confidence issue for many, preventing them from a full smile while dramatically decreasing the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is a highly recommended and effective treatment for ridding your teeth of stains.
3. Fresher breath. Halitosis or as most people say, “bad breath,” is usually the cause of untreated or advanced periodontal disease. The combination of left-over food particles, cavities and gum infections below the gum line, results in bad breath. Routine cleanings and removal of plaque and bacteria at our Mesa dental office will improve halitosis while reducing and preventing infections.
