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 Pasadena today at (727) 384-9655 to schedule a teeth cleaning in St. Petersburg.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in St. Petersburg 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 Pasadena 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. Petersburg 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.

Coast Dental is awesome. Leo, the office manager there is awesome and helpful as always, making sure I got the breakdown of all of the services and understanding what my insurance would cover. The staff is very gentle and caring to and for those of us who suffer great dentist anxiety. I recommend this place to my friends and will continue to do so. They do just need to work on their answering service relaying calls for return phone calls, but beyond that, their service and work is awesome!

So far everyone has been very nice. My next visit will be for a good cleaning. Can't wait. Only got the bottom of my teeth cleaned. I would have rated more but, I had to wait for a good bit. They were short a doctor on site.

Had the best experience. From Kimberly who is first to greet you and made my appointment to Christina who assisted Dr. Christy Mikhael in a dental procedure I was not so thrilled about. Kindness and great customer care made this experience great. Thank you...

My first experience with Coast Dental Pasadena was very good. The staff was very pleasant and professional. Dr. Mikhael took the time to listen to my dental concerns and to explain the best treatment. She was professional and I felt at ease.
