Regular

Prophylaxis

Dental prophylaxis, commonly called prophy, refers to a routine, six-month teeth cleaning. It’s a preventative measure used to ward off gum and tooth disease.

During your prophy, a specially trained dental hygienist will first discuss any updates to your medical history, such as new medications you’re taking. They’ll also check your mouth and neck for signs of oral cancer.

Periodontal Scaling

Periodontal scaling, or deep cleaning, is a outpatient procedure that non-surgically removes plaque, bacteria and tartar that’s built up below your gum line. Scaling goes much deeper than the standard dental cleaning you get during your regular checkup. The procedure is only used to treat advanced-stage gum disease.

When your gums are healthy, they fit snugly around your teeth and prevent plaque from entering. However, if you develop gum disease, your teeth loosen and pockets develop that capture plaque. Untreated, this can lead to loss of bone or teeth. Scaling can prevent this from happening.
