Dental Prophylaxis in Bakersfield, CA

Dental Prophylaxis is the periodic cleaning of teeth that have been determined to have a relatively healthy periodontal condition (the gums are relatively healthy). The cleaning is typically done above the gumline in order to remove plaque, stains and calculus (tartar) from the teeth. It is important to do this because continued accumulation of plaque and tarter will result in inflamed gum tissues, which over time, lose their attachment to the tooth roots and bone, causing deepening periodontal pockets, which allow the plaque and calculus to develop encrustations below the gumline, which cause the body to destroy its own bone, causing collateral damage to the dental bone in the body’s effort to combat the invading bacteria in the plaque.
