To remove the tartar and plaque buildup in hard to reach areas, it sometimes requires a more thorough cleaning. That’s when our dentist will use a more in-depth method of cleaning called prophylaxis to remove the stubborn deposits from your teeth and under your gums. If you need prophylaxis in Rensselaer, Indiana, call Jordan J. Balvich, DMD, PC at 219-224-3213 today to schedule your next appointment.
