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 Richey today at (727) 868-0200 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Port Richey.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Port Richey 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 Richey 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 Richey 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 highly recommend Coast Dental! Yesterday was my first appointment and I was a little nervous because it had been so long since I’ve been to the dentist. From the moment I walked in I felt comfortable and relaxed. You can tell it is positive atmosphere from the top and throughout. Every one was cheerful, polite and knowledgeable. Dawn was so accommodating and personable she made me feel at ease with her delightful personality. Dr. Horovitz was amazing! He came up with a plan to get me back to a beautiful smile and was so kind and helpful! If you are looking for a new dentist look no further, this is where you want to go.

The staff at Coast Dental are the sweetest people I could've hoped to find. They're encouraging, talk to you on a personal level, and are real about the options you have before you. As someone who has had problems with dentists in the past and currently has a long journey of dental recovery ahead of me, it's the most reassuring thing I could ask for. Definitely come here if you want a warm atmosphere.

Super pleased so far. My husband and I went here yesterday for initial consultations regarding some extensive work we both desperately need. We found Dr. Horovitz and his staff to be very focused, professional and friendly, and their pricing very reasonable.

I had my first appointment with Coast Dental yesterday. Because I have had TMJ surgery before and am now having issues with it again, I was petrified to go. The entire staff was absolutely incredible. Everyone in the entire office went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and at ease. They took their time and were very patient with me. They answered all of my questions and explained everything to me. By the time that I left the office, I felt like they were all good friends. I highly recommend seeing them!
