When should I see the dentist for a prophylaxis or check-up?
Our dentist in Encino recommends visiting our dental office once every 6 months. Keep in mind that some patients may need to visit our office more frequently because of his or her medical history or because of increased risk of infection.
During a dental prophylaxis or teeth cleaning at out Encino office, please expect the following to occur:
Our dentist will carefully clean your teeth above and below the gum line, removing any sign of tartar and plaque to prevent infection. Your teeth will also be flossed and any visible tooth stains that may have appeared will be removed.
