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 South Tampa today at (813) 254-6838 to schedule a teeth cleaning in Tampa.

Teeth Cleanings and Gum Therapy

Many people who come in to our dental office in Tampa 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 South Tampa 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 Tampa 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.

Amazing first visit at my new Dental Office - Coast Dental. Everyone I met was extremely friendly. The Customer Service was excellent. Big shout out to their office manager Courtney, for going above and beyond to help me with scheduling my son appointments. Thank you, Coast Dental Team!

I came here on my boyfriend’s recommendation and I’m glad I did. I feel so grateful to this office after my last dental procedure (done by another dentist at another office) left me with an oversized crown. From the start, Courtney was a sweetheart and took such good care of us. And Dr. Basily is a dentist wizard! She listened to all of my concerns, cast a spell with her drill wand, and now my bite finally feels normal again. She had a gentle hand and really focused on finding all the high points to make sure I no longer felt pain / pressure when biting. Leaving this review say thank you!!

Today was my 3rd cleaning here, and my second time with Jose cleaning my teeth, and I can say with enthusiasm that in my 42 years on earth Jose has given me the finest teeth cleanings of my adult life. I say “adult life” because I can’t remember my teeth cleanings as a child. In all honesty, they are probably the best cleanings of my life. It’s the first time I have ever wanted to return to a specific dental office, and had a specific person clean my teeth. His attention to detail, concern for my teeth and desire to do his job with courtesy, completeness, and professionalism are bar none. Jose Carmona Amador: the best. Five stars for Coast Dental. I am a very happy customer.

I had a very very good experience at this office. Jose was my hygienist and he was very thoughtful. He explained to me clearly and thoroughly what he was doing and why he was doing it. He ensured I felt comfortable and was not in pain during the procedure. I look forward to my following appointments in the future !
