Welcome to Pro Spoto Dental online, your family’s resource for quality, comprehensive dental services. Dr. Gerald Spoto and our dedicated team love helping our patients in Tampa, Florida, and the neighboring communities maintain healthy, confident smiles with our dental cleanings and exams. So if you have not had your six-month cleaning yet this year, now is the time to get your smile ready for summer!

According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive routine dental care every six months benefit from improved oral health. Dr. Spoto has found routine dental cleanings and checkups to be the perfect complement to your daily brushing and flossing routine.

What can you expect during our dental cleaning and exam? We will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays as needed. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth, and floss them. Then we will check for the following:

— Signs of tooth decay

— Your gum health

— Your bite

— Signs of tooth grinding or TMJ

— Infection or oral cancer

The AGD found that routine dental checkups may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. In addition, life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, can be detected in their early stages during a dental exam. Regular dental cleanings also keep gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath away. Another benefit to routine professional checkups is that it allows us to detect and fix issues early on. This is also the stage when conditions can be most economically and least invasively treated.

If you are ready to welcome summer in with your healthiest, most radiant smile yet, please give us a call today at (813) 884-3287 to schedule your dental cleaning and checkup with Dr. Gerald Spoto in Tampa, Florida!
