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 cleaningEveryone 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 Melbourne today at (321) 255-6303 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Melbourne.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 Melbourne may also apply an antibiotic to treat the infection-causing bacteria.
  • 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.

Regular teeth cleanings at our dentist office in Melbourne 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. Call Coast Dental Melbourne today at (321) 255-6303 to schedule a teeth cleaning and restore your smile.

Monica is the best dental hygienist! She took great care of me, today. Miss Diane is such a wonderful receptionist, she really sets the positive tone for the entire office. I’m lucky I found them. They even made time to do my cleaning, today, after I had all my X-rays done. Also, I love that they’ve modernized with telehealth and I got to meet the dentist, virtually. I had an amazing visit and I can’t wait to see them in 6 months.

The staff really friendly and professional. The waiting time was great, place clean.. I don't give the 5 start because at the end off the appointment The Doctor gave me a referral for a endodontist and just that... no names of places that I can go or what to do next. I make the appointment with them thinking they do root canal
