Gulfport Preventive Dentistry
Tooth decay is caused when cavity-causing bacteria build up on your teeth. The two main causes of this buildup is the presence of plaque and tartar. Regular brushing and flossing will remove plaque, but tartar can only be removed by a dental professional using special tools. To ensure the best oral health possible, you should schedule a professional cleaning every six months.
During your oral hygiene appointment, a professional trained hygienist will thoroughly remove tarter by scaling and then polish your teeth to remove stains. We also offer fluoride treatments to protect your teeth from decay.
During a regular dental examination, we’ll check your teeth for signs of cavity and decay, screen you for oral cancer, and check your mouth, teeth, and gums for signs of disease or injury.
