ROUTINE CLEANING (PROPHY)

WHAT IS ROUTINE CLEANING?

 

A routine cleaning is recommended at least once or twice per year for patients who generally have healthy gums. At the same time, your dentist will be able to detect any potentially dental problems and stop them in their tracks. These visits takes about 30 minutes.

WHAT IS THE DENTIST CLEANING OFF MY TEETH?

A regular or routine cleaning (known in dentistry as prophylaxis cleaning) involves cleaning off plaque, tartar, and stains that may be affecting your teeth above the gums. 

 

  • Plaque is a thin, soft and sticky film made of millions of bacteria that build up on your teeth.  These bacteria are responsible for producing the acids that can cause cavities if left untreated.  Proper dental care at home as well as professional teeth cleaning regularly with your dentist can reduce your chances of developing these cavities.
  • Tartar, also known as calculus, is another form of plaque that did not get removed during every day brushing, and soon became hardened. Yellowish substance that looks rough and porous on your lower front teeth, where it is most visible, can lead

 to receding gums or gum disease.  The dentist will be able to remove any tartar found on your teeth during the routine cleaning with special tools.

  • Stains are discolorations that can build up on your teeth between each professional teeth cleaning. It may come from the every day food you may be eating or drinking, including drinks such as coffee, cola, and soda. Stains can also be caused by tobacco if you are a smoker.

WHY ROUTINE CLEANING IS IMPORTANT

Having your teeth professionally cleaned is very important to your dental health.  Not omnly can you preserve the shine and brightness of your teeth, you can also protect them from damaging dental problems ans diseases caused by plaque and tartar. We offer routine cleaning for every dental check up visit as a prevention method to help your teeth stay bright and healthy.
