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 Largo today at (727) 535-9993 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Largo.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Largo 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.

  • Periodontal Maintenance
    Periodontal disease is a systemic disease like diabetes that requires careful monitoring. Our dentist in Largo 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.

  • 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 Largo may also apply an antibiotic to treat the infection-causing bacteria.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Regular teeth cleanings at our dentist office in Largo combined with good oral hygiene habits at home can prevent dental decay, bad breath, gum disease, and help your overall health. Researchers have found regular teeth cleanings can lower your risk for some diseases like heart disease and stroke.

Staffs were friendly and professional. They explained everything clearly and thoroughly. I highly recommend this Coast Dental site in Ulmerton Rd. Largo. The dental hygienists Jose (first visit) and Julio (second visit) were impeccable, very caring and attentive. Thank you for the great experience, especially that I was terrified since I haven't been to a dentist for over 20 years. And I love the way they made it easy for me to have a treatment plan to get my teeth and gum taken care of that will work within my budget.

My husband and I have been searching for a dentist office for a long time. Finally, I got some dental insurance through my work and found this amazing place. Everyone there worked with me and my husband's budget, and did amazing jobs in my husband's teeth so far, even if there is a lot to be done still. Stacy and Wanda are the best and treat us like family. We look forward to future visits!

I’ll start by saying I have avoided the dentist for YEARS before I finally chose this office for a cleaning because it was much needed. From the minute I walked in and every minute after I was treated amazingly by the staff. They were so understanding and accommodating of my dental anxiety. Amazing office, dentist, and staff. Highly recommend!
