Prophylactic and prevention

This procedure includes removal of the dental tartar and plaque by scaling and polishing all teeth surfaces. The process of polishing is very important after the scaling because it removes the superficial stains.

We use an airflow system that works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles (sodium bicarbonate) to remove stains and pigmentation. At the end of the procedure, we explain to our patients how to improve their oral health and demonstrate to them some techniques of brushing. It is important to go to a dental hygienist regularly to make routine check-ups to keep your teeth and gum healthy.

We recommend to our patients to visit us every six months for prevention. In case they forget when should be the next prophylactic appointment we call or text them by message or email.
