Understanding Dental Cleanings and Exams

Dental cleanings and exams at Gulf Coast Dental Care are essential components of preventive dental care. These visits allow us to remove plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing might miss, preventing decay and gum disease. Our exams include a comprehensive assessment of your teeth, gums and mouth to identify any potential issues early on, such as cavities, gum disease or oral cancer signs.

The Dental Cleaning and Exam Process

Your dental health journey includes regular cleanings and exams every six months, or as recommended by our dentist. During a cleaning, our skilled hygienist uses specialized tools to gently remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth, and apply fluoride if necessary. The exam portion involves a thorough inspection of your oral health, including digital X-rays when needed, to ensure a comprehensive understanding of your dental needs.

The Advantages of Regular Dental Cleanings and Exams 

  • Prevention of tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health issues
  • Early detection and treatment of dental problems
  • Professional advice on improving your oral hygiene routine
  • Maintenance of overall health, as oral health is linked to systemic health
