Teeth Cleaning (Dental Prophylaxis)

Teeth Cleaning in Baltimore & Randallstown

A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease.

The Benefits of Professional Teeth Cleaning Include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

Prophylaxis dental cleaning can be performed at our office. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the tools Dr. George Evans Sr., Dr. Kira Evans, and Dr. George Evans Jr. can use to effectively halt its progression.

5 out of 5 stars based on 2 Teeth Cleaning reviews.

Professionalism, patient, considerate, concerned, prompt, and overall good atmosphere. Usually people have a trying experience. But here it is a relaxing experience where you don't concentrate on your pain. This is how it is from the time you come with the receptionist area until you leave. When you get a reminder call about your appointment, there is such a good personal touch where you feel like you're letting them down if you don't come in. Modern technology is awesome with your choice of music, chair massager, etc. There is an overall concern with Dr. George and the hygienist Drenna.
