Professional Service in Coconut Creek, FL
Our teeth do so much for us, so we should do our best to keep them happy and healthy. Without proper care, the foods and drinks that we consume can build up on our teeth and increase our chances of having cavities or oral diseases. At Family Dental Associates, we encourage regular teeth cleaning to be scheduled at least once per year by our Coconut Creek, FL dentists. Even if your teeth appear to be healthy and not causing you any pain, it is important to come in and see our professionals to catch any problems that may be overlooked.
What To Expect During Teeth Cleaning
During your visit to our orthodontic office, one of our highly trained dental hygienists will use a special tool to remove any plaque and tartar buildup around your teeth. While plaque removal may not seem like an entirely big deal for those who brush regularly, it is important to emphasize that the toothbrush cannot reach everywhere in the mouth, while our hygienists can. These buildups are responsible for gum disease and tooth decay if it is not effectively removed. Once it is removed, a rotating brush with a special paste will be used to polish your teeth to leave them smooth and less susceptible to plaque and tartar accumulation.
As a last step in the cleaning, we will place our flavored fluoride in a flexible foam tray to put over your teeth. After 30 seconds of the fluoride treatment, you will be asked to rinse the inside of your mouth with water and spit out the remaining solution into our saliva ejector. This recent treatment has revolutionized the advancement of oral health in the dental care community. From studies done, it has been shown that fluoride can strengthen and rebuild tooth structure, as well as prevent future decay.
Most of our dental cleanings are around 30 minutes to 1 hour and are practically painless. If the procedure is causing any discomfort or pain to your teeth, please let our hygienist know, so that we can recommend alternative options to make your experience more comfortable and enjoyable.
