5 Steps to Understand about Teeth Cleaning in Fort Lauderdale FL

 JJ Dental offers two convenient office locations in Fort Lauderdale & Lauderdale by the Sea.

Teeth cleaning is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments offered in dental offices. Before you go for such an intervention, however, you need to know a few things regarding the procedure. Today, our specialists in teeth cleaning in Fort Lauderdale FL are here to explain a few things to you.

1. It Starts with a Physical Exam

The dental hygienist is usually the one performing the teeth cleaning treatment. However, the procedure begins with a general exam of your mouth and dental health — the specialist checks for cavities, gum inflammation or diseases, or other potential problems.

In case everything is excellent, and you do not need the intervention of a dentist to fix some issues, the hygienist will move onto the next step.

2. Plaque and Tartar Removal

You should brush and floss thoroughly at home to prevent high accumulations of tartar, but even so, sometimes you will get tartar buildups below, around your gum line, and in between your teeth.

To remove such dangerous residues, your expert in teeth cleaning in Fort Lauderdale FL uses a scaler. You will feel and hear some scraping – which is not the most pleasant thing you ever experienced – but it depends on the quantity of plaque and tartar the hygienist has to remove.

In other words, the lesson to learn here is to floss and brush responsibly.

3. Toothpaste Cleaning

Once your tartar and plaque are gone, the hygienist will proceed to clean your teeth with a powerful electric brush and abrasive toothpaste. While the noise is something that may put you off a little, you should enjoy this step because it means you get deep teeth cleaning you cannot achieve at home.

Our experts in teeth cleaning in Fort Lauderdale FL warn you that you should not be so harsh on your teeth on a regular basis because you risk damaging the enamel on your teeth. You should undergo professional teeth cleaning (with such gritty paste and tools) only twice a year. While at home, you should continue the excellent work of brushing and flossing for at least 2 minutes twice a day.

4. Thorough Flossing and Rinsing

Your hygienist will floss your teeth thoroughly, making sure there is no plaque, tartar, or toothpaste residue left. While home flossing is necessary, it does not compare to the professional treatment. Once this step is over, the hygienist will rinse your mouth with a liquid usually containing particular substances (such as fluoride) to make sure your mouth is crystal clean.

5. The Fluoride Treatment

The last step is the fluoride treatment, which protects your teeth against cavities and other potentially harmful agents for a few months. You can also get a fluoride varnish to allow you to eat and drink after you leave the dental office.

What about Teeth Cleaning in Fort Lauderdale FL when you have Implants?

If you got dental implants, the teeth cleaning procedure is similar. Your hygienist will inspect your implants and apply the same methods mentioned above if you do not need an intervention from your dentist. When you have dental implants, you need to get teeth cleaning in Fort Lauderdale FL every six months. The specialist has to check the alignment of the implant and its status and sanitize the implant threads, the surrounding tissue, and your natural teeth.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for me smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.

We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
