What is a Prophylaxis?

A prophylaxis is a professional teeth cleaning by a hygienist. Plaque is the number one cause of gum disease and affects over 60% of Americans. Plaque is a white, sticky substance that forms on the surface of teeth and along the gum line. This is due to poor oral hygiene habits that causes bacteria to develop as plaque over time.


There are many benefits of getting a prophylaxis such as:

  • Enhanced oral health
  • Fresh breath
  • Visually beautiful smile

How Does a Prophylaxis Work?

First, we will perform a comprehensive oral evaluation of your mouth and teeth. Then, your hygienist will use cleaning instruments to remove plaque along the teeth and gum line.

Afterward, a gritty toothpaste is applied to your teeth. Using a high-powered toothbrush, your teeth will be brushed and cleaned to a pearly white shine. The final step involves flossing to remove any food particles lodged between teeth.
