Advanced Prophylaxis Cleanings in Prospect, KY
In addition to checkups, dental cleanings (also known as prophylaxis) are a vital part of your child’s routine visits to our Prospect dental office, and Dr. Danielle and the rest of our friendly staff members look forward to helping little smiles feel nicely refreshed and polished. Our in-depth cleanings include the following steps:
- Plaque removal: Plaque is a clear, sticky substance that gradually forms on tooth surfaces, and it’s filled with harmful bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease over time. Thankfully, it can be removed with diligent brushing and flossing at home before it turns into tartar. Our team will be sure clear away any missed areas during your child’s cleaning.
- Tartar removal: When plaque is allowed to stay on tooth surfaces for too long, it hardens into tartar, which has to be removed professionally. We’ll use special instruments to get rid of this dangerous substance as thoroughly as possible.
- Stain removal: Any minor dental stains will be buffed away for a squeaky-clean look!
