Dental Prophylaxis • Teeth Cleaning
Professional Teeth Cleaning Charleston SC
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.
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.

Patient Testimonial by Jerry S
Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry has the most relaxed atmosphere of any dentist office I have been to. Dr. Beall has long been my dentist, Dr. Blanton has twice done surgery on me (implants and bone augmentation) and Dr. Christopher is the dentist of my daughter and granddaughter. Even though she has never attended me, Dr. Borden adds greatly to the relaxed feel of this practice. The dental assistants and hygienists are wonderful and complete the professional confidence I feel in this office.

I have been a patient of Dr. Robert Beall for more than 20 years, having had my teeth cleaned by Hygenist Lynn Casey, and having had various dental procedures done by Dr. Beall, and dental implants done by Patricia Blanton, Phd DDS. The dental assistants are extraordinary in their ability to prepare patients for the procedures, explaining exactly what will happen, how it will happen, and what to expect afterwards. The entire staff, from front office onward are well matched and well trained to provide the best dental health I have had in my long lifetime. I give this practice my full recommendation.
