There is more to keeping your mouth healthy than a brushing and flossing routine. Keeping up with your scheduled professional cleanings not only keeps your teeth looking great and healthy, but it also allows for the removal of any deep buildup. Plaque and hard deposits on the tooth and below the gum line can build up over time. Malwin Family Dentistry in Venice, FL, uses tools designed for professional cleanings, and will go over any questions or concerns with you. During your cleaning, our doctor will perform an oral cancer screening. These screenings are fast and painless and will be completed using a visual and touch examination of your mouth, lips, and tongue.
Dental sealants are used to keep your child's teeth protected and less likely to develop a cavity. Sealants are plastic resin coatings that smooth out the rough surfaces of the back teeth and make them less prone to cavities and decay. Placing a sealant is harmless and does not require any drilling or numbing shots.
