Dental cleanings in Weston, FL
Routine dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. It is recommended you go in for a cleaning once every six months.
Seeing the dentist twice a year is recommended because we can:
check for problems that you might not see or feel
find early signs of decay
treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable
Regular checkups at Advantage Dental Weston include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, the doctor checks the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, the doctor also checks old fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or cleaning can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack. Our doctors and dental hygienists will work with you to help you achieve the goals you have for your dental health and the appearance of your smile. Contact our dental office in Weston, FL to request an appointment for a consultation at 954.384.7505.

Dental sealants in Weston, FL
Dental sealants are usually applied to children's teeth as a preventive measure during the years of most likely tooth decay. However, an adult's teeth can also be sealed. Using dental sealants on your teeth gives you an extra line of defense against tooth decay. A dental sealant is a plastic resin that bonds to the deep grooves in your tooth's chewing surface. When sealing a tooth, the grooves of your teeth are filled and the tooth surface becomes smoother and less likely to harbor plaque.
