A prophylaxis, or simple preventive cleaning, is typically performed every six months in order to remove plaque, calculus (solidified plaque that firmly adheres to the tooth) and staining that cannot be removed by your toothbrush or floss. Ultrasonic and hand scaling instruments break up and remove these deposits gently and effectively. Finally, polishing with a special paste smooths the surfaces of the teeth, making them more resistant to plaque and calculus accumulation.
