It goes without question that preventative dental care including teeth cleaning and teeth whitening represents the best value available to patients and consumers in, the most popular treatments in Palm Harbor and Clearwater being:
While these services may be well known to many people, often overlooked is the clinical and therapeutic opportunity they represent, particularly when viewed in the context of a Personal Care Plan, popular among Dr. Caputo’s existing patients.
A personal care plan takes into account your oral health priorities, general health, past illnesses and financial parameters. Developing a personal care plan with Dr. Caputo and his staff, while not required, is an opportunity to plan for preventative care, necessary care, and cosmetic dental care
Well over 90% of Dr. Caputo’s existing patients have chosen to develop individual, personal care plans.
Dr. Caputo’s commitment to personalized, individual, oral health care planning is an integral part of his practice and an outgrowth of his practice of Comprehensive Dentistry.
With advanced training in oral surgery, periodontal care, endodontic care, as well as general dentistry, Dr. Caputo is among the minority of dentists willing to practice this form of dentistry. Dr. Caputo also has extensive expertise and experience in cosmetic dentistry as well as reconstructive dentistry.
While familiar to many, a few words on the most popular treatments is often helpful. A sample of Dr. Caputo’s fees for these treatments is presented separately.
The value of a teeth cleaning goes far beyond any cosmetic considerations. While your cleaning is being done Dr. Caputo and his professional staff are looking for early signs of bone loss, decay or gum (periodontal) disease.
In many ways, a teeth cleaning appointment can be the most valuable time a patient spends with their dentist.
Although a cosmetic procedure, it is important to know the best results from teeth whitening, whether done professionally or by a home treatment, are achieved within one to two weeks of a professional teeth cleaning.
While it is widely known fluoride treatments are particularly helpful for children with developing teeth, fluoride treatments can also be of great value to older patients. Teeth are worn down over time from “normal wear and tear” may be hypersensitive to hot and cold, and/or more susceptible to periodontal (gum) disease.
In these instances, fluoride treatments can be both a preventative and therapeutic measure. The most common fluoride treatment is a take home rinse which is used daily.
Unfamiliar to many, pit and fissure sealants, are a treatment to prevent tooth decay in children. Pit and fissure sealants are a protective coating placed over the chewing area of the back teeth, and generally not applicable or useful for adults.
It is important to know that while pit and fissure sealants are often covered by insurance, it is also true an age limit for coverage often applies, usually 14 years of age.
