Dental Cleaning Reviews
"This office is totally caring about my mouth! I have never been anywhere where they think about my care and how best to make better for me. I showed up yesterday and had a new hygienist. Made me a little nervous. She was so good. She did not use the water pick on me. She did the hand pick to get tartare off. She was amazing and did the best job! Her name is Rosie! She was amazing. Then I found put that they had thought about me before I got there and decided this would be better for me! All I can say is wow! What a wonderful place! I love them all and so thankful for the great work they are doing! My mouth has never looked so good! Thank you Dr Patel and all of your amazing staff!!"- C.C. / Google / Jan 26, 2021

The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests people schedule professional dental cleanings twice each year. Infants should get their first dental exam before their first birthday, and after that, Dr. Patel will help you determine when your child is ready for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning can prevent cavities since plaque buildup, the most common cause of tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also address tartar and stains on the enamel. If you would like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a dental cleaning for your whole family at Dr. Patel's practice, Sangiv I. Patel, D.D.S., PA.
What To Expect
Your dental cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be hard to treat on your own no matter how often you brush and floss. Advanced instruments are used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. To start, an ultrasonic device loosens bigger chunks of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a fine handheld instrument, like a curette or scaler, will be used to remove the remaining pieces. Each tooth needs to be scaled to remove all of the buildup. Once the teeth are clean, the enamel will be polished to strengthen it and remove stains. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment may be done after the cleaning.
Dr. Patel may suggest cleanings more frequently for some patients with concerns, like gum disease. During your treatment, Dr. Patel or a member of his team can help you come up with a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will address your needs. These can be very beneficial for your teeth, overall health, and wallet so make sure you schedule and go to your dental cleanings at our Melbourne, FL practice twice every year.
A professional cleaning is considered a preventive procedure so it is usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will contact your dental insurance to determine your specific coverage and then bill for any out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have dental insurance, please talk to Dr. Patel about different payments we accept, including medical financing.
