Teeth Cleaning

Regular dental visits are very important because they keep your teeth and gums healthy. Only a dental professional can remove plaque build-up from those hard-to-reach places that regular brushing and flossing can’t get.

  Professional teeth cleaning Everyone has plaque. It’s the sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth and multiplies deep below the gum line. When you eat or drink, some of the particles get stuck on and around your teeth. If you don’t remove them, the bacteria in your mouth will break down the particles into acids, and those acids will eat away at the enamel and cause tooth decay.

Plaque not only causes cavities, it also causes periodontal (gum) disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Call Coast Dental South Lakeland today at (863) 644-1226 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Lakeland.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Lakeland think of a teeth cleaning as just the polishing of the tooth enamel above the gum line. But problem-causing plaque often exists below the gum line, too. If the bacteria is not removed, it can destroy the bone supporting your teeth, causing the teeth to loosen and fall out.

The type and frequency of the type of teeth cleaning and dental care you need depends on your dentist’s diagnosis.

  • Prophy: Patients who just need to have their teeth cleaned above the gum line to remove plaque, calculus and surface stains receive a prophylaxis teeth cleaning – the kind that most insurance companies cover. This type of treatment does not address periodontal (gum) conditions.
  • Gingivitis Therapy: Patients diagnosed with gingivitis, a reversible form of gum disease, may need additional services to remove plaque build-up on the teeth and just below the gum line.
  • Scaling & Root Planing (SRP): Patients diagnosed with active periodontal (gum) disease require treatment above and below the gum line to treat the infection. These patients typically receive SRP, a non-surgical treatment that removes bacteria and smooths out exposed root surfaces. Our dentist or hygienist at Coast Dental South Lakeland may also apply an antibiotic to treat the infection-causing bacteria.
  • Periodontal Maintenance
    Periodontal disease is a systemic disease like diabetes that requires careful monitoring. Our dentist in Lakeland may prescribe a periodontal maintenance routine to provide dental cleanings above and below the gum line to help manage the disease and keep it from becoming worse.

I've been looking for a place to get a cleaning done for weeks ever since the new year and I was pleasantly surprised when they had an appointment in January for me! Jackie did a phenomenal job with my deep clean. She made sure that I was comfortable and gentle. I'm looking forward to my follow-up. Now don't be alarmed when a virtual dentist comes on the TV they are there to approve the work and then you will have an official appointment with and they will guide you to what you need.

Amazing Dentist work here. I do not like going to the dentist and I know not to0 many people do. I had 2 fillings and I was given enough medicine so that I didn’t feel anything. The noise is the one thing that was a bit bothersome. Happy to go back for my other 2 filling and to make them my go to dentistry. Thank you for having kind and wonderful staff work here.
