A big part of maintaining your oral health is to schedule regular dental visits and cleanings. At Dentistry of South Florida, our highly trained and professional dental hygienists clean your teeth and remove soft deposits (plaque) and hard deposits (tarter, calculus, or stains) from your teeth.
During your appointment, the hygienist will check your teeth and gums for evidence of decay or disease. In addition, the patient will be screened for oral cancer, fluoride treatments will be provided as necessary, and we will update your medical history accordingly. We accomplish all of this in our friendly and comfortable environment!
Our dental team will also discuss the recommended frequency of future cleanings depending on the health of your teeth and gums.
Remember, the primary purpose for having your teeth cleaned is to prevent or delay the progression of periodontal disease. Please note that in addition to having your teeth professionally cleaned, it is important to maintaining good oral hygiene at home, eat a healthy diet, and abstain from tobacco use. Together, these routines are the most effective way to prevent periodontal disease.
Our office serves patients throughout South Florida including Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Coconut Creek, and Coral Springs.
