Oral Prophylaxis is a treatment or procedure which removes plaque, stains and other accretions. The goal of prophylaxis is to remove irritants from the crowns of teeth.
Prophylaxis As Prevention
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Better be safe than sorry. These statements are just a few of the many quotes on being prepared. Preparedness has always benefitted those who practice it religiously. These quotes are just as applicable to our dental health, since the majority of people only drop by to see their dentist when something is already wrong with their teeth.
The sad truth is many people tend to dismiss the practice of brushing their teeth. These practices may seem trivial. However, recovering from the damage caused by lack of responsibility is not an easy road to travel. The bigger the damage we acquire, the harder and costlier it becomes to repair. Regular exams and dental prophylaxis helps us to avoid these problems.
Prophylaxis From Dr Hadden
Dr. Hadden advises to schedule a regular visit to the dentist every six months. For just twice a year, your dental health can be monitored and any signs of damage can immediately be treated while still in its early stages. Two prophylaxis appointments with your dentist each year to add to your daily regime of oral hygiene. Some people visit their dentists every 2 to 3 months to have their teeth and gums cleaned! It is truly a clear example of dedication to oral hygiene and good health.
