Dental Prophylaxis • Teeth Cleaning

Professional Teeth Cleaning Charleston SC

Photo of woman receiving professional teeth cleaningA 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.

Professional teeth cleaning can be performed at our office by one of our qualified hygienists. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3–4 months for periodontitis sufferers.

For more information about professional teeth cleaning, or to make an appointment, please use our online appointment form or call our office: James Island Family, Cosmetic, & Implant Dentistry Charleston Office Phone Number 843-795-1111. We invite you to read testimonials from our patients.

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 removing 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 serious 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 is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the tools you can use to effectively halt its progression.
