Your periodontal health will be accessed by your Dentist. Depending on how heavy your deposits of calculus and plaque are, the dentist may recommend a prophylaxis or a difficult prophy, which means that you may require more than one visit to have your teeth cleaned. The extra time necessary may not be a covered benefit by your dental policy. Remember, we treat you keeping your dental and overall health in mind. Sometimes the buildup of plaque and calculus is too heavy for your Dentist to fully examine your teeth and gums. When this happens, we will have you return for a Full Mouth Debridement.
