A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment preformed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums by a licensed dental professional. Dental prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Dental prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and helping control the progression of gum disease.
Professional dental cleaning is a treatment service that our office provides. We recommend the prophylaxis be performed every six months as a preventive measure. However, some patients may need to be seen on a more frequent interval schedule. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but teeth cleaning is one procedure that Dr. Gordon’s office can use to effectively control its progression.

Both my spouse and I have been patients of Dr. Mark Gordon and his staff of professionals ever since the retirement of our previous dentist...that was over nine years ago. Although it’s never easy changing health care professionals, in this case the switch went as smooth as silk. Dr. Gordon, caringly and without hesitation, took us under wing and helped to establish dental care tailored to best meet our needs. He was also quick to diagnose a potential issue with one of my husband’s teeth (more on that later). Dr. Gordon is easy to talk with, takes time to fully explain what’s in store and never makes us feel rushed.
In addition to the wonderful care we receive from Dr. Gordon, we also find his staff to be top-notch as well. From the time we arrive are warmly greeted by receptionist, Dot, to the time we’re seated in an exam chair has set a new standard for “timeliness!” Needless to say, there could always be one of those pop-up emergencies; however, we have yet to wait!
An added bonus to being under the care of Dr. Gordon is having the same dental hygienists, Linda, as we had with our previous dentist. She does an outstanding cleaning and like Dr. Gordon and others on his staff, we find that Linda has our very best interest in mind. We’re convinced that she’s a prime ingredient in why we both still have all of our natural teeth.
Returning to the potential problem with one of my husband’s teeth mentioned earlier...this was a real “tooth saving event” brought about by Dr. Gordon. In a nutshell, their dedication to saving one of my spouse’s molars was beyond all expectations and we are so very grateful. Without Dr. Gordon’s early diagnoses, the tooth would certainly have been destined for the scrap heap. Thanks to the joint care of Dr. Gordon and an associate, Leawood Endodontics Dr. Robert H. Altomare, a costly and time-consuming implant was avoided. Under their attentive, skilled and professional care, the tooth and surrounding gum were completely restored to normal
We highly recommend the office of Dr. Mark Gordon. He and his caring staff will treat both you and your “pearlys” with tender and professional care.

Excellent care by all

I have been going to Dr. Gordon for a number of years. I appreciate his attention to all the small things that make a great smile, from quality preventive measures to the correct measures to fix any problems. Having Linda Patterson as my hygienist keeps me from sitting in the Doctor's chair very often and for that I am greatly appreciative.
- Joyce W
My teeth are much cleaner than they were a few hrs ago!
- Stephen F
I've been going to Dr. Gordon for several years. He and his staff are professional, give great care, and pay attention to customer service as well. The hygienist, Linda, is careful to get your teeth clean without hurting you or spilling water all over your clothes! Dot, who runs the desk, is a ray of sunshine. And if you have an emergency, you can always get through to someone.
- Eileen M
Always recommend to my friends!
