Teeth Cleaning (Dental Prophylaxis)

A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. It is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.


In addition to this treatment when you are at home, it is also essential for you to keep up with daily teeth cleaning for your overall dental health. Some of the benefits include money saving, health prevention, stain removal, and more.

Benefits of a Professional Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning (dental prophylaxis) is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits 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. Teeth cleaning (dental prophylaxis) is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of 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 gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus, and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

Teeth cleaning (dental prophylaxis) can be performed at our office. We recommend it to be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but it is one of the tools Dr. Chin can use to effectively halt its progression. Please call us or email our office to schedule your dental appointment.
