Dental prophylaxis, more commonly referred to as a teeth cleaning, is the removal of plaque, materia alba, calculus, and extrinsic stains. This procedure is done as a preventive measure to control and prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease. While it is a necessity to brush and floss at home, it is still vital to have your teeth cleaned by a registered dental hygienist. At these appointments we will also identify cavities, gum disease, infections, and complete an oral cancer screening.
An initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive exam and full series of x-rays. If the patient's gum tissue is healthy, a cleaning may be completed at that first visit. The existence of periodontal disease may require additional appointments for the cleaning to be completed. We will also discuss other treatments needed at this initial appointment as well as present the patient with a treatment plan.
Hilton Dental does welcome emergency patients. If you are having a problem with a tooth, please call our office so that we can set up a limited evaluation and x-ray of the problem area. A treatment diagnosis will be made and if time allows, treatment may be started.
