Gentle dental cleaning or prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure for thoroughly cleaning the teeth. At Doral Dental Specialty Center, our Pediatric Dentist in Doral, FL provides prophylaxis to stop the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis. Besides providing you with a healthy mouth, oral cleanliness is important for treating a wide range of oral and dental issues.
We suggest getting gentle dental cleanings twice a year. It is recommended more often if your child has periodontitis. It is important to realize that gum disease is not fully reversible. Prophylaxis is, however, an effective treatment option to stop the damaging effects of gum disease.
Plaque formation on the teeth is a regular process. So, it is important to have your child receive gentle dental cleanings at Doral Dental Specialty Center on a regular basis. We suggest keeping up with the schedule to maintain clean and healthy teeth.
