Dental Cleanings or Prophylaxis (“prophy”) is an essential component of preventive dentistry. The goal is to remove microbial plaque which can cause gingivitis (gum inflammation), and cavities.

A mouth guard can also prevent injuries in non-contact sports, such as bicycling, skating, skateboarding, and gymnastics. Hits to the face in those sports may be accidental, but they are just as damaging.
