Prophylaxis Edmonton

Prophylaxis is a comprehensive medical term that encompasses actions taken to prevent the onset of diseases. In the realm of oral health, dental prophylaxis plays a vital role in disease prevention. This procedure is designed to eliminate bacterial biofilm and biotoxins caused by residual food particles in the mouth, effectively warding off conditions such as gum disease, periodontal disease, and dental decay. At Twilight Dental Group in Edmonton, Dr. Fee & Dr. Park, conducts professional preventive dental appointments that go beyond routine cleaning to ensure your oral health is at its best.

During your visit to Twilight Dental Group, Dr. Fee & Dr. Park employs various techniques and tools to enhance your oral well-being. These include the removal of food debris, bacterial plaque, tartar (calcified dental plaque), and extrinsic stains on the teeth. Our clinicians utilize dental hand instruments like scalers and curets, as well as advanced ultrasonic instrumentation powered by concentrated air and water streams. Additionally, polishing methods are applied to eliminate stains and any remaining plaque on the teeth, leaving your smile refreshed and revitalized.

Dental prophylaxis at Twilight Dental Group is more than just cleaning your teeth. Dr. Fee & Dr. Park also conducts a comprehensive oral cancer screening and identifies potential systemic issues that may manifest through oral symptoms. For example, gum tissue inflammation can indicate uncontrolled blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. We also assess the effectiveness of your at-home oral care routine, providing guidance and recommendations to optimize your dental hygiene.

Our conveniently located practice at 10060 Jasper Ave in Edmonton, AB, is dedicated to preserving your oral health and preventing dental issues for a brighter smile and improved well-being.
