Prophylactic cleaning is the routine cleaning that is performed every three to six months to prevent periodontal disease. A few patients will need more cleanings for preventive measures, and a few will need cleanings only once a year. The cleanings are completed by our wonderful hygienist in one hour appointment slots. The prophylactic cleanings include:
- A dense review of the patient’s medical history and measurement of your blood pressure.
- An oral cancer screening and examination of teeth and gums
- Ultrasonic scaling of all teeth, followed by manual scaling. The teeth are then polished by fluoridated pumice for perfect and smooth service.
- Lastly, a concentrated fluoride rinse is given for topical application at no extra charge.
The fee for the prophylactic cleaning is $145.
