Dental Cleanings

Upon evaluation, the doctor will inform you which type of cleaning is medically necessary for you.

-Prophylaxis

During a dental prophylaxis, your dentist performs both scaling and polishing. During the scaling process, dental tools are used to remove tartar, plaque, and stains from the teeth – including below the gum line. The polishing process smoothens your teeth removing rough spots which might otherwise attract bacteria.

-Full Mouth Debridement

A full mouth debridement involves the preliminary removal of plaque and calculus that interferes with the ability of the dentist to perform a comprehensive oral evaluation.

You can find information about periodontal cleanings on our "Periodontal Treatment" page.
