Dental Hygiene

Avoiding issues like cavities and gum concerns starts with simple dental hygiene practices. Our dedicated dental hygienists at Coral Gables Dentistry prioritize your smile's health with straightforward measures for optimal oral well-being.

What is Dental Hygiene?

Dental hygiene refers to the practice of maintaining clean teeth and healthy gums to prevent oral health issues such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.

What Are Your Dental Hygiene Services?

At our office, we offer comprehensive dental hygiene services to help you achieve optimal oral health. Our services include:

Prophylaxis (Regular Cleanings)

A regular dental cleaning is a preventive treatment aimed at removing plaque, tartar, and stains from the surfaces of your teeth. During a prophylaxis appointment, our dental hygienist will clean your teeth using specialized instruments and techniques, leaving your smile feeling fresh and revitalized.

Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)

For patients with more advanced gum disease or significant tartar buildup, we offer deep cleanings. This treatment involves cleaning below the gumline to remove plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth, as well as smoothing the tooth roots to promote healing and prevent future gum disease.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Cleanings?

  • Cavity Prevention: Regular cleanings help prevent unwanted cavities.
  • Gum Health: Practicing good hygiene reduces the risk of gum problems.
  • Fresh Breath: A healthy mouth translates to fresh breath – a benefit for you and those around you.

Will the Dental Cleaning Hurt?  

Dental cleanings are designed to be pain-free. Our hygienists use special tools to gently clean your teeth, prioritizing your comfort. There are some patients that feel discomfort, but it’s usually minimal. Additionally, if you feel anxious, we offer nitrous oxide at no cost to help you relax during your appointment.
