Our team at Gulf Coast Smiles in Cape Coral, Florida, is excited to get your smile ready for summer with a professional dental cleaning and exam. Dr. Mauricio Martinez has found that regular dental cleanings and exams are a fitting complement to daily at-home oral care when it comes to maintaining your healthy smile.

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that patients who receive routine dental cleanings and exams every six months benefit from improved oral health. Not only do they help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath, routine dental cleanings can help lower your risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. In fact, life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, are often detected in their early stages during a routine dental exam.

During your visit with us, our Gulf Coast Smiles team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them, check for tooth decay and gum disease, make sure your bite is aligning properly, and evaluate your health for signs of tooth grinding which can cause tooth sensitivity.

In addition, detecting issues early allows us to fix them in the beginning stages when they are still the easiest and least invasively treated. So if you are looking for a smile boost, please call us today at 239.549.0001 to schedule your dental cleaning and exam. Dr. Mauricio Martinez and our team in Cape Coral, Florida, will help you sport a confident, sizzling smile this summer!
