Prophylaxis is commonly known as a dental cleaning. More specifically, prophylaxis is a deep dental cleaning that includes a careful dental examination to ensure that your smile stays in good health. During prophylaxis, our skilled dentists and dental team will thoroughly clean all surfaces of your teeth, including hard-to-reach areas. We remove plaque, tartar (hardened plaque), stains, and other particles from your teeth. This process includes a careful cleaning of the area under the gum line. We will check your teeth, gums, and existing dental restorations for signs of damage or disease that require treatment or repair. If needed, Drs. Terteryan, Gordon, and Fahid will recommend dental treatment to restore your smile to optimal health. We will provide fluoride treatment and other preventive treatments as needed to protect your teeth from cavities and tooth decay.
We recommend that you visit us at Couture Smiles Dental Group at least twice each year for a teeth cleaning in Woodland Hills, California. Routine dental cleanings and exams help to ensure that your smile stays in good health and that we treat any damage as early as possible. For more information on prophylaxis, and to schedule your next visit to our office, we welcome you to call or visit our dentists today. We are eager to care for your smile!
