Dental plaque

Understand the different types of teeth cleaning.

There are different types of teeth cleaning procedures, and the type your dentist is likely to utilize relies heavily upon your specific oral care needs.

Prophylaxis cleaning

A Prophylaxis cleaning procedure is used on individuals with an overall healthy mouth. Is ONLY recommended for those who visit the dentist regularly and practice good oral hygiene. All patients that require a prophylaxis cleaning keep up with semi-annual dental appointments. Generally prophylaxis will cost around U$100.

Dental exam


Scalling is used to clean both the teeth and gum pockets in order to treat gingivitis and periodontitis.
Not only does this cleaning removes bacteria, but also helps to reduce gum inflammation. Is divided in: Scalling in presence of inflammation (if there is no bone loss) and Scalling and Root planning (if there is bone loss.)
Is charged per quadrant and generally costs around U$200/U$300 if there is no bone loss, and up to U$1000/ U$1200 in severe cases when there is bone loss and advanced gum disease.


Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance cleanings are intended to individuals that have gum disease, specifically periodontitis. Periodontal maintenance cleanings are specially designed to slow the progression of gum disease. Are often scheduled more frequently than normal preventative cleanings and performed after the scaling as maintenance.
Generally it costs U$100/ U$300 depending on severity of existing condition and maintenance interval.

Debridement cleanings

Debridement cleanings are heavy duty teeth cleanings. Cases requiring dental debridement are characterized by excessive amounts of plaque and tartar that have accumulated in layers between the teeth and in the gums.
These cases usually occur in people who have bad hygiene or never had a dental cleaning before.
Generally costs around U$200/ U$300.
