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 Anastasia Island today at (904) 471-3291 to schedule a teeth cleaning in St. Augustine.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in St. Augustine 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 Anastasia Island 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 St. Augustine 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.

Regular teeth cleanings at our dentist office in St. Augustine 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 Anastasia Island today at (904) 471-3291 to schedule a teeth cleaning and restore your smile.

Office staff very nice. Had X-rays and all good. Appointment at 3 pm. Unfortunately a patient who was being treated by the dentist while I was prepared to be examined by him, required more time than scheduled. I understood and was more than willing to reschedule. I was impressed by the compassion and thoughtfulness of the entire office staff. My follow up once again prolonged due to problems with insurance approval. The dentist is wonderful. Careful in his examination. No rough nor hurried actions. The staff does everything it can to get you your dental benefits. They succeeded. I got full approval. You may spend more time there than one cares to spend at the dental office or in the dentist chair, but you receive stellar pain free as possible care in return for your patience.Truly as a unique enjoyable experience as could be possible when receiving dental treatment. Just be prepared to be patient and allow extra time. You will be greatly rewarded for that time expenditure.

I had a wonderful experience as a new patient at Coast Dental Anastasia Island! Jennifer, my hygienist, was very personable and knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable during my visit. She took her time with me, explaining beforehand what she would be doing so that there were no surprises. From the x-rays taken to my cleaning, Jennifer was thorough, gentle and kind. I'm so excited I found this great dental office!
