Dental Prophylaxis

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

Dental prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease.

The benefits of professional teeth cleaning 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. The routine removal of plaque, calculus and bacteria at our office can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

Professional dental cleaning can be performed at our office. We recommend that prophylaxis 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 dental prophylaxis is one of the tools Dr. Skowronski‘s hygienists can use to effectively halt its progression.

Everything I answered above are my overall comments. My family has been seeing Dr. Ray for over 30 years, His staff is very friendly and very easy to talk with if I have any questions. They always answer the phone promptly. I do recommend Dr. Ray to my friends for dental needs. His office has a very homey environment which makes you feel comfortable. His ability to adhere to the Covid outbreak was excellent. I can tell there was a lot of thought put into that. But by far, I love his singing,

Staff is always friendly and courteous. Very pleased with the measures taken to insure staff and patient safety during this pandemic. Only minor complaint was the need to wait for a short while in the lobby. However, very happy to wait to insure everything is prepped and cleaned thoroughly between patients.

I was terrified of the dentist after a bad experience about 5 years ago. I was recommended to Dr. Ray many times by co workers. I am SO happy I made an appointment. Staff is AWESOME. The front desk ladies are so nice. Chris, my hygienist, is wonderful, and of course the singing Dentist, Dr. Ray, is great. Very happy with my experience here. I cannot recommend this office enough! Just a bonus: the office is beautiful and the Bitmojis of Dr. Ray are so funny. Love it!
