It can prevent diseases such as periodontitis, which affects the tissues that support the teeth, and gingivitis, which is an inflammation of the gums, as well as prevent against cavities.
Prophylaxis is a procedure that involves the removal of tartar and plaque bacteria that is present on teeth and on the implants, as well as any stains. It is important that this procedure is followed by the proper hygiene instructions, specific to the oral condition of the patient.
