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.

For more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cranston, call our office at Hartland Office Phone Number 810-632-6770.

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 facility 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 regular dental prophylaxis the the best way to prevent its progression.

We are so excited to have found Dr. Cranston! It was so great to feel confident about treatment he suggests for myself and my children. The front desk staff took special care to ensure all my questions were answered prior to my appointment. Our family would definitely recommend Dr. Cranston.

When Dr. Cranston took over Dr. Christopher's practice I figured he had a tough act to follow. He has done a wonderful job with the transition and I have recommended him to several of my friends.

I was so impressed with the entire staff on my first visit. Not only were they friendly, professional, courteous, and kind, they were fun as well. Everyone worked so well together as a team. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I value a dental office of this caliber because I've been to other offices that did not have all of these qualities. I look forward to my next visit!!
