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.
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. 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.

What is a Root Canal?
A tooth has two basic parts, the crown and the roots. The crown is mainly above the gum, and the roots, which attach your tooth to your jawbone, are below. Inside the tooth is a hollow area, called the root canal.
The root canal contains a substance called pulp, which is a network of nerves and blood vessels that nourish the tooth, and sensing extreme temperatures and pressure on the tooth.
If the pulp becomes injured or diseased, it dies. This can happen because of a deep cavity or damage to the tooth. Bacteria get in through a crack or cavity and cause infection. Eventually the tooth becomes loose, the tissue around it swells and abscesses may form beneath the tooth.
