In the early stages of gum disease, Dr. Samuel Yee DDS can provide prophylaxis, or deep dental cleanings, to effectively treat your periodontal disease. This treatment clears your mouth of harmful bacteria and helps prevent the progression of the disease. Call Samuel Yee DDS INC at 949-831-3111 to learn more about prophylaxis in Aliso Viejo, California, and schedule your appointment with our skilled dentist.
Prophylaxis is an intensive dental cleaning. When you receive this professional treatment, we will scale your tooth to clean below the gums, and search for any other problematic developments in your oral health. Your teeth will then be polished to make them smoother, which will help prevent bacteria from attaching to the teeth and contributing to periodontal disease.
Deep dental cleanings are significantly more extensive that what you can perform on your own. Even if you have perfect oral hygiene habits, you will be unable to clean the areas below your gum line. If you have gum disease, you will need to visit our dentist regularly to receive prophylaxis treatment. We will recommend a schedule of appointments for you depending on your individual needs.
