A professional teeth cleaning, or prophylaxis, is a deep cleanse of the entire mouth, including all teeth and gums. Using specialized dental tools, all plaque that has built up on the surface of the teeth and below the gum line is removed. The teeth are also cleansed and polished to eliminate surface stains and any remaining plaque. After a professional teeth cleaning, patients experience a long-lasting sense of oral freshness and reduced bad breath for up to six months.
Spotting cancer in its earliest stages is the first step towards effectively treating the disease. That is why we conduct an oral cancer screening during every complete dental checkup. Our dental health experts examine the lips, tongue, face, gums, throat and oral tissues for any signs or symptoms of cancer. If any abnormalities are discovered, a biopsy will be conducted as soon as possible.
