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 St. Lucie West today at (772) 343-0179 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Port St Lucie.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Port St Lucie 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 St. Lucie West 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 St Lucie 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 coming to Coast Dental since 2020 and I have always had very thorough cleanings. The dental assistants and staff are friendly and very helpful. They always take the time to educate and have so much patience with me when I ask all my questions. Lesly and Dr Gomez are super friendly and make my appointment very enjoyable. I don’t know how many other people can say that when they go to the dentist but you won’t be disappointed if you come here!

I’m never going to another dental office for as long as coast dental exists. I had an appointment for myself and my mom, trying to kill 2 birds with 1 stone considering my busy schedule. I had to take my 2y/o with us since I didn’t have someone to watch him. He decided that it was the day to drive me crazy and started throwing a tantrum, wouldn’t stop crying. I told them to cancel my appointment and just keep my mom’s. The office manager and one the hygienist, offered to take my son so I can get my things done. I was a little skeptical cz I don’t like to hand my son to people I don’t know. He went to the lady with no problem and sit quietly to play the whole time. She was so sweet and caring with him. It’s the sweetest thing I’ve seen someone in a doctor office do. I manage a Medical office myself, I’ve help parents with kids, giving them candies but that’s about it. Thank you so much for your kindness.

I was very nervous about going to a dentist. My 1st visit there was amazing. Dr. Gomez was so friendly and very professional. My 2nd visit where I had 5 extractions was the best experience I've ever had with a dentist. Dr. Gomez and his assistant were very pleasant and very professional. I will be continuing my dental work here.
