Dental Cleaning (Periodontal Prophylaxis)

 

A periodontal cleaning procedure is normally performed to thoroughly clean the teeth after periodontal treatment is completed. It is also an important preventative dental treatment for retarding the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis. Periodontal Prophylaxis is generally recommended twice annually as a preventative measure, alternating with twice annual prophylaxis visits to your general dentist, thereby making a total of 4 "cleanings" per year.
