Dental Cleanings And Hygiene

We know how important it is to have an attractive smile, and few things contribute to your smile like having healthy gums and teeth. Taking good care of your mouth will preserve the health and beauty of your smile for as long as possible. At Affordable Dental Center, our job is to help Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach residents care for their teeth and feel good about it. It is easier than you might think!

At your first visit, we’ll give you a complete checkup. This may include a full examination of your teeth and gums, digital x-rays, and a cancer screening. All three are done carefully and gently to minimize discomfort. The professionals at Affordable Dental Center of Jacksonville will make custom recommendations based on your oral health and possible dental problems. Before we begin any work, we’ll give you a written treatment plan with an estimate, and we’ll answer any questions you have. We’re here to help you keep your mouth in good shape.

In order to maintain good oral health, annual checkups help prevent dental and medical problems. It is not just about preventing bad breath or cavities. Regular cleanings supplement your teeth cleaning routine at home with expert care. Tartar, hard deposits that build-up on your teeth, can only be removed by professionals. Tartar is harmful because it encourages the growth of bacteria that damage your teeth.

Our staff will clean your teeth gently and thoroughly to dislodge plaque, tartar and the bacteria they harbor. These same bacteria have been found in plaques clogging the arteries of people with heart disease, so getting rid of these germs is crucial to both your oral and overall health. Also, if tartar is allowed to accumulate on your teeth, your gums may become inflamed, and your teeth could become loose; this is periodontal disease.

When you schedule a checkup at our office, you are actually reserving a time to relax and let our professionals pamper your mouth. You will leave with clean, more beautiful teeth. Come visit us and see why we’re the talk of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach. We love what we do, and it shows — just like your smile!
