Dental Prophylaxis

Amazing Smile offers regular dental cleaning services also know as dental prophylaxis.

Regular dental cleaning (Dental prophylaxis) is dental care done to protect your teeth and prevent gum disease. It involves a full examination of your mouth and teeth, as well as a thorough cleaning using an ultrasonic scaler or other tools to remove tartar, plaque, and calcifications. The teeth are then polished, and a fluoride treatment and dental sealant are applied.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet.  It is continued with regularly scheduled dental cleanings with a dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Your dental cleaning appointment may also include regular dental exams, and cleanings. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.

Regular dental cleaning (Dental prophylaxis) helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, beautiful smile.

Here are some of the benefits of regular teeth cleaning dental prophylaxis:

Tartar removal – Tartar and plaque buildup are a natural occurrence in your mouth. If you don’t remove tartar and plaque buildup, it can cause some serious periodontal problems—both above and below the gum line. Even using the best brushing and flossing home care techniques, it can be impossible to remove debris, bacteria and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dental hygienist using specialized dental equipment is required in order to locate and treat problems such as tartar and plaque buildup.

You’ll have a better smile – It’s hard to feel confident about yellowing, stained teeth. It can be a real source of low-self esteem and antisocial behavior. Dental Prophylaxis can remove unsightly stains from the teeth and return your smile to its former glory.

Fresher breath – Periodontal disease is often accompanied by persistent bad breath also known as halitosis. Bad breath is generally caused by a combination of rotting food particles below the gum line, possible gangrene stemming from gum infection, and periodontal problems. The removal of plaque, tarter and bacteria noticeably improves breath and alleviates irritation and the bad breath odor.

Detection of health issues – Regular cleaning often provide an opportunity to detect and identify the onset of many health problems. Because dental prophylaxis involves a thorough examination of the entire oral cavity, the dental hygienist is able to screen for oral cancer, evaluate the risk of periodontitis and often spot signs of medical problems like diabetes and kidney problems. Recommendations can also be provided for altering the home care regimen.
