At Tarpon Shores Dental, we believe that it’s never too late to start prioritizing your oral health. Many problems arise because of an ongoing lack of preventive care, including checkups and cleanings. Dr. Mesh wants to help you start understanding the intricacies of your oral health and structures through regular appointments here in Englewood, FL. Contact us today if you have any questions, or if you’d like to improve your smile by visiting us soon.
In agreement with the American Dental Association, our team strongly recommends that patients with generally good oral health attend a professional checkup and cleaning every six months, or twice each calendar year. These regular intervals will help us keep a watchful eye over your smile’s wellbeing.
During every regular visit to Tarpon Shores Dental, our team will start by closely examining the teeth and gum tissue for tell-tale signs of decay. Our modern technology will help us spot anything that’s out of reach of regular eyesight, and digital X-rays can even pinpoint damage that’s not technically visible yet. Providing comprehensive diagnoses is an important priority for Dr. Mesh!
After your examination, Dr. Mesh will sit down with you to discuss his findings and recommend any treatments that may benefit your oral health and wellbeing. Then, it will be time to undergo a professional cleaning with one of our excellent hygienists. This process will thoroughly eliminate decay-causing plaque from the teeth and gum tissue. While good brushing and flossing at home can eliminate plaque, missed areas will gradually develop into tartar, which can only be removed with professional tools. What’s worse is that its presence can lead to cavities, advanced gum disease, and other serious health concerns. Our team will strive to eliminate plaque and tartar before these conditions can take root in your smile.
