Routine Dental Cleanings (Prophylaxsis)

routine dental cleaning and prophylaxsis in Santa Maria to keep your smile healthyProper prophylaxis teeth cleaning is essential for maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Regular professional cleanings, also known as dental prophylaxis, are key to preventing a variety of oral health problems and keeping your smile in great shape. At the Santa Maria dental office of Dr. Michael R. Gomez, DDS, we provide patients with comprehensive oral hygiene treatments to keep teeth and gums in tip-top condition.

Dental prophylaxis is an important part of preventive care that helps remove plaque buildup and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth. Without regular cleanings, plaque can harden into tartar which can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and other kinds of oral health issues. Professional cleanings also help freshen breath and reduce bad breath caused by bacteria in the mouth.

At Michael R. Gomez, DDS’s office our team of experienced dentists provides comprehensive prophylactic services tailored to each patient’s needs. We use advanced tools and techniques to carefully remove plaque buildup as well as tartar from the surface of your teeth before polishing them with special pastes and abrasives for a noticeably brighter smile.

We also take time to educate our patients about proper oral hygiene habits so they can maintain good oral health between visits to our office. This includes tips on proper brushing and flossing techniques such as using a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice a day, flossing daily or using an interdental cleaner such as a water flosser or electric toothbrush head with built-in flossers if available . We also recommend avoiding sugary snacks and drinks in between meals, avoiding tobacco products like cigarettes or smokeless tobacco whenever possible, and visiting us regularly for routine checkups every 6 months or as recommended by your dentist.

Our team at Michael R. Gomez, DDS is devoted to helping you keep your smile healthy through proper preventive care practices like regular dental prophylaxis cleanings so you can enjoy all the benefits that come from having good oral hygiene including fresher breath, fewer cavities, improved overall health and confidence in your smile!
