You’re never too old to take care of your teeth and gums. Many oral health problems arise simply because patients do not seek out routine preventive and general dentistry checkups. Fortunately for patients in the Sarasota, Venice, and Englewood communities, Tarpon Shores Dental can be of assistance. Our dentists have experience in paying attention to the overall oral system as they examine patients during a regular hygiene and checkup appointment. Please call us today to begin working to improve your smile.
In accordance with recommendations from the American Dental Association, Tarpon Shores Dental prefers to see healthy patients for general dentistry visits at least every six months. This helps us better maintain a watchful eye on your overall oral health.
During each general dentistry visit at Tarpon Shores Dental, our professionals can check your teeth for any signs of decay. Our technology can help us spot problems that could be developing beneath your gum line, and cavity-detecting, low-dose digital x-rays can even identify deterioration in areas which may not yet be visible. We like to take a preventive approach to our patients’ oral health. Seeing us twice a year is highly suggested for every the healthiest adult.
After one of the dentists at Tarpon Shores Dental examines you during your comprehensive examination appointment, we will discuss your overall dental health and gun tissue condition. The next visit is typically a thorough cleaning appointment with one of our gentle, skilled dental hygienists. This is done in order to remove plaque from your teeth and gums. Plaque is produced by the bacteria that are naturally present in your mouth, and simple toothpaste isn’t enough to get rid of it. When left to its own devices, plaque can lead to gingivitis, tartar, and advanced gum disease. While we do treat gum disease when necessary, our general dentistry staff prefers to catch the condition before it becomes a problem.
Nowadays, many people like to drink only bottled or purified water. Although this habit surely has its advantages, refraining from drinking tap water can actually be harmful for your enamel! Fluoride is a beneficial mineral for your teeth, and it’s normally used to enhance tap water. During every general dentistry visit, you’ll receive a fluoride rinse that remineralizes your teeth. Our staff wants to use every modern tool to help improve your oral health when you visit us for your general dentistry appointment.
Please call Tarpon Shores Dental today. Our general dentistry staff is always happy to welcome returning and new patients to our locations. We proudly serve the communities of Sarasota, Venice, Englewood, and nearby areas.
