Good oral hygiene care at home can clear away a lot of the bacteria in your mouth, and routine cleanings from our dentists can remove the plaque and tartar buildup. However, sometimes an even more thorough cleaning is needed, especially if you are diagnosed with periodontitis. Dr. John Bennion and Dr. Ryan Boswell offer prophylaxis in Belgrade, Montana, if your teeth need more care. Call Premier Choice Dental Center at 406-813-8551 to schedule your visit with our team.
Prophylaxis involves a more intensive cleaning routine than regular dental cleanings. Even if you have perfect oral hygiene habits, it is impossible to protect the sections of your teeth that lie below the gumline. Prophylaxis removes the tartar and plaque that builds up below the gumline and in areas of your mouth that are difficult to reach.
Our dentists will scale your tooth and polish it to make it smoother and less likely to attract bacteria and other harmful deposits in the future. This helps prevent gum disease from worsening and begins the healing process to restore your oral health. Our dentists may also take the opportunity to check your mouth for any other problematic developments below the gumline, such as tooth decay.
If you have periodontal disease, you should receive deep dental cleanings on a regular basis to help prevent more severe damage from gum disease and bone loss in the future. Our dentists will evaluate your mouth to determine the severity of your periodontal disease and recommend a schedule of regular treatments to help keep your mouth free from gum disease.
We invite you to contact our office today to learn more about prophylaxis and schedule your appointment with our experienced dentists.
