Prophylaxis refers to all preventative measures taken to ensure healthy teeth and periodontium (tooth supporting structures). This includes regular professional tooth cleaning as well as learning correct tooth brushing techniques. With the use of ultrasound and special instruments, our prophylaxis professional removes stains, dislocations, and calculus. In addition, professionals provide you with the correct techniques in order to ensure good oral health and avoid tooth loss and decay. We strongly encourage our patients to yearly- even better quarterly cleanings in order to be able to detect carious or inflammatory defects early and tackle these as soon as possible.
Because our team works in an interdisciplinary manner, it is often possible to combine your dental hygiene appointment with your dental check-up. Our goal is to long term preventive measures and a good oral health.
