What is a Prophylaxis and Root Planing?

A prophylaxis is the practice of professionally cleaning your mouth and teeth from the onset of oral diseases. Root planing involves removing calculus--a hard, tooth-colored substance that is harvesting bacteria-- from the roots of your teeth.



A prophylaxis begins with a comprehensive oral examination of your mouth and teeth. Root planing requires using a scaling instrument to remove calculus from your teeth under the gum line.

A high-powered toothbrush and a gritty toothpaste are used to brush away remaining plaque. Afterward, your hygienist will floss your teeth to get rid of unwanted food particles! Your smile will be brighter again!
