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 Port Charlotte today at (941) 255-8500 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Port Charlotte.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Port Charlotte 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 Port Charlotte 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 Port Charlotte 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.

PROS: Great experience. Friendly staff. On time. Clean. MUHAMMAD AWAN made sure I was comfortable. I’ve been back several times and he has always been very clear if there is a charge BEFORE he does anything. My FAVORITE part is that he doesn’t feel like a salesman that happens to clean teeth! I am satisfied enough that I recommend Muhammad to my own mother. CON: Weird parking lot. Everyone drives around looking for building numbers and not where they’re driving.

My mother was in a care facility that lost her teeth. The staff at Coast Dental got her in and a new set of dentures that fit her wonderfully. There were a couple of hiccups with the lab but the staff found the issue fast and resolved the problem expediently and efficiently. Five stars is not enough.

Dr Prescott and Anna were awesome. I had 2 crowns done and it was absolutely painless. This is coming from someone that is extremely nervous in the chair. It was a very good experience.
