Prophylaxis is a dental procedure that removes sticky plaque ABOVE the gum line. This is typically done on patients who come back to their dentist every 6 months.
Now if your dental check up has been a while like about a year or so… You might need Perio Scaling. This procedure entails removal of hardened plaque–called calculus– BELOW the gum line, which of course causes periodontal disease. Once you have a periodontal disease, a regular prophylaxis no longer qualifies.
