Dental cleaning (oral prophylaxis) is a procedure that involves removing dental plaque and tartar (calculus) from the teeth. Specialized ultrasonic devices and hand instruments are used to gently remove dental deposits and smoothen the tooth surfaces without causing any damage. Following this procedure, the teeth are polished.
Depending on your teeth and gum condition, routine visits for recare exam and professional cleaning every three to six months are highly recommended. This will insure proper maintenance of oral health as well as prevention of future complications.
