Routine teeth cleaning is a must-have for everyone. Also known as Prophylaxis, the procedure involves a thorough examination of your oral cavity. Many health issues are often detected first by dentists and teeth cleaning plays an important role in this regard. At Doral Dental Specialty Center, our teeth cleaning services help screen for oral cancer and often help spot any signs of medical issues including the risk of periodontitis. We are located in Doral, FL and provide comprehensive dental services.
There are various benefits of Prophylaxis. This includes:
Removal of Tartar & Plaque
The buildup of tartar and plaque around the gumline can cause serious periodontal issues. Maintaining a proper routine of brushing and flossing at home will still fail at removing all the deposits, debris, and bacteria from gum pockets. Our dentists and hygienists use specialized equipment to catch and remove potentially harmful buildup.
Maintain a Fresher Breath
Bad breath is a sign of potential periodontal disease. Also known as halitosis, it is caused by a combination of food debris and likely gangrene caused by gum infection. Prophylaxis at our office involves the regular removal of plaque, bacteria, and tartar to eliminate bad breath and reduce infection.
Our teeth cleaning services can help you rid of unsightly stains on your teeth. Stained or yellowed teeth can significantly decrease the beauty of your smile.
Teeth cleaning sessions can include dental X-rays, removal of built-up tartar and plaque, polishing, and flossing.
