What is a Prophylaxis and Root Planing?
A prophylaxis is the practice of professionally cleaning your mouth and teeth from the onset of oral diseases. Root planing involves removing calculus–a hard, tooth-colored substance that is harvesting bacteria– from the roots of your teeth.
- Fresh breath
- Enhanced oral health
- Reduced risk of developing oral diseases
A prophylaxis begins with a comprehensive oral examination of your mouth and teeth. Root planing requires using a scaling instrument to remove calculus from your teeth under the gum line.
A high-powered toothbrush and a gritty toothpaste are used to brush away remaining plaque. Afterward, your hygienist will floss your teeth to get rid of unwanted food particles! Your smile will be brighter again!
