Teeth Cleaning

A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits include: Plaque Removal – Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria, and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging build ups.

A Healthier Looking Smile – Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the aesthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these otherwise unsightly stains. Fresher Breath – Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene that stems from gum infection results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus, and bacteria at our office can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection. Prophylaxis can be performed at our office or by your general dentist. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every three to four months for periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the tools Dr. Pickle can use to effectively halt its progress.

Dr. Pickle is an incredible, caring Prosthodontist. I struggled for a long time with discomfort from an implant and 2 crowns that were poorly placed by another dentist. Subsequent dentists I saw could not obtain the needed abutment kit for my particular implant. Dr. Pickle had no problem obtaining what was needed. Dr. Pickle is the only one who offered a solution. I received the very best care and resolution. Dr. Pickle’s staff are very friendly, professional, and helpful. I highly recommend this office.

Dr Pickle is such an awesome prosthodontist! He is a perfectionist which is exactly what I needed when getting four crowns placed on my upper front teeth. They look better than I ever imagined they could! Everything he did from local anesthetic to fitting my crowns was completely painless! His staff are kind, courteous and always make me feel like family 🙂 I’ve recommended Dr Pickle to everyone I know who needs dental work like I did. As a retired dental hygienist, I’ve seen more than my fair share of dentists and staff over the years. Hands down, this office is the best!
