Are you looking for a dental office where you can have great dental exams and dental cleanings? If so, will want to come and visit us at Dental Doctors of Florida. At our dental practice you will be able to have a wide variety of dental treatments performed to keep or get your teeth and gums back into good health. If you need a St. Augustine teeth cleaning, you will be able to get that at our office as well.
One of the most important things you can do in order to make sure that your teeth stay clean and your gums stay healthy, is to have a St. Augustine teeth cleaning. It is recommended at our dental office that patients have teeth cleanings every six months. During a teeth cleaning all excess plaque and tartar will be removed from your teeth. Even with the most diligent at-home dental cleanings, some plaque, tartar, and bacteria is always left behind. If plaque is left to remain on teeth for even a short period of time, it will turn into tartar. When tartar and plaque are left to remain on teeth, it will encourage the development of deep pockets to form. When deep pockets form between your teeth and gums, they will become filled with tartar, food delivery, plaque, and bacteria, and infection will form. At this point, you will have gum disease. It is good to know that a teeth cleaning will almost always be able to prevent this from occurring if it is performed on regularly recurring basis.
After a teeth cleaning, it is always a good idea to be seen by one of our dentists, Dr. Christine Trunk or Dr. Merlin P. Ohmer, at our dental office for a checkup. If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months in order to get your gums back to good health. If our dentist sees that you have deep pockets developing between your teeth and gums, you will probably need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums, and will remove all debris and infection from the deep pockets.
