Can't Prophylaxis

Why can't I have a Prophylaxis anymore?

Keep in mind that a Prophylaxis is a cleaning specifically for teeth that are not affected by Periodontal Disease. Because periodontal disease causes bone loss, and areas around your teeth that are deeper than 3mm (referred to as pockets), bacteria and toxins can easily accumulate, and you will need Periodontal Maintenance visits to remove these buildups. A prophylaxis does not involve cleaning out these pockets.
