Dr. Gilberto Tostado on Dental Cleanings and Dental Exams Read Transcript

As a general dentist focusing on cosmetic dentistry, we truly care about our patients’ beautiful, healthy smiles, and we want to make sure that they stay clean, white, and sparkling. Here at Cosmetic Dental Associates, our highly trained dental hygienists perform routine teeth cleaning in San Antonio, TX which will remove plaque and tartar that has built up on teeth over time.

With years of experience in performing dental cleanings and cosmetic restorations, our trained general dentists use their experience in cosmetic dentistry to clean around bondings, porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers and dental implants to ensure they are not damaged. We are also highly familiar with orthodontic and Invisalign braces and proficient in maneuvering around brackets during dental cleanings, to make your teeth cleaning experience more pleasant.

For the best results, award-winning San Antonio, TX dentist Dr. John A. Moore, Jr. recommends visiting us at least twice a year to maintain the health and beauty of your smile. Schedule your visit now by calling us at 210-951-4444.

We Get Your Teeth Sparkling Clean

Our teeth cleaning dental hygienists may use ultrasonic instruments during your teeth cleaning. These instruments specialize in removing larger pieces of tartar. The ultrasonic instruments use vibrations and mists of water to loosen up and remove debris that has accumulated since your last teeth cleaning. Our teeth cleaning dental hygienists also use finer hand instruments to remove smaller deposits and to smooth up tooth surfaces during your teeth cleaning. To make teeth sparkle, they brush them with a soft rubber cup and polishing paste that comes in a variety of flavors such as pina colada.

The typical appointment for a teeth cleaning is scheduled every six months; however, depending on each patient’s needs, three to four-month teeth cleaning appointments can be scheduled. Getting these exams done on a regular basis will not only keep your teeth clean but also prevent you from needing more extensive treatments.

Your dental cleanings will be conducted in one of our comfortable dental chairs by a skilled dental hygienist. Once plaque becomes tartar, it can be removed only by a professional. After a thorough cleaning and flossing, your hygienist will polish your teeth for that squeaky-clean look and feel.

To reap the most benefits from a fluoride varnish or treatment, you can request that we apply it to your teeth immediately following your dental cleaning. Your teeth will be completely free of any plaque and will be able to better absorb the tooth-strengthening fluoride.

You’ll Get A Thorough Dental Exam

Dental exams are extremely important because they give Dr. John A. Moore and Dr. Tostado an opportunity to take a closer look at your mouth. Digital X-rays can reveal whether there are any oral health issues beyond what meets the eye. We’ll do an oral cancer screening using VELscope, a World Health Organization–recognized, award-winning technology.

Of course, we are also looking for cavities! Finding a cavity in its earlier stages will only require a filling, while a bigger one that’s gone undetected or remained undiagnosed for an extensive amount of time may need a root canal and a crown.

Scheduling a regular dental exam can also prevent gum disease or the progression of gum disease such as periodontitis. A serious gum infection, periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in people over 35 years old, so we ensure that our patients are properly diagnosed and treated.

Your dental exams are also when we can inspect any custom mouthguard we’ve created for you – athletic, bruxism, or sleep apnea – for wear, and it’s a great time to ask about our nutritional counseling services too!

For an dental exam that feels like a treat for your teeth, call Cosmetic Dental Associates San Antonio, TX dentist office at 210-951-4444 to schedule your next six-month dental checkup, or fill out our simple online form to schedule your appointment.

Dr. John A. Moore, Jr. has been voted into America’s Top Dentists in Cosmetic Dentistry. He has been recognized for outstanding achievement by the Southwest Society of Prosthodontists, The University of Texas Health Science Center, and Mexican Academy of Prosthodontics.
