Even when you brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day, you still need professional teeth cleaning in Bradenton, FL. Visiting Bayshore Gardens Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for a preventive care exam twice each year ensures that your teeth remain as clean as possible and that you stay ahead of oral health issues. We have the equipment to spot potential problems that you cannot see on your own as well as remove stubborn plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth.
What to Expect at a Typical Teeth Cleaning Exam
One of our dental hygienists starts your exam by inspecting your teeth and gums. Assuming the hygienist does not spot anything out of the ordinary, the next step is to begin removing plaque and tartar from your teeth with a variety of dental instruments and techniques. Your hygienist will then floss and polish your teeth. If you are due for your annual examination x-rays will be taken, and the doctor will come in to complete your check-up.
Your hygienist also polishes and flosses your teeth before asking a dentist to look inside your mouth. If the hygienist does spot problems before starting your cleaning, a dentist will complete the inspection at that time.
Your hygienist may recommend fluoride at your cleaning visit. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen and remineralize the outer layer of your teeth called enamel. Fluoride applications only take a few minutes and can be completed at your cleaning visit.
