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. It is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits include:
Prophylaxis can be performed at our office. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers. We personalize each treatment schedule for a patient’s individual needs. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the tools Dr. Kravitz can use to effectively halt its progression.
