Dental Cleaning Q&A

What is a dental cleaning?

A routine dental cleaning removes tartar, plaque, and other debris from your teeth and deep below the gumline to prevent cavities and gum (periodontal) disease.

NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness offers comprehensive dental cleanings to adults and children in a comfortable office environment. The team deep cleans your teeth and gums to get rid of plaque and bacteria that you can’t remove on your own with brushing and flossing.

What can I expect at my dental cleaning appointment?

During your initial visit to NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness the team takes X-rays of your mouth to identify potential dental problems below the surface of your teeth and gums.

When cleaning your teeth, the hygienist scrapes away plaque and tartar from your teeth and below your gumline. They also polish and floss your teeth to remove any remaining debris.

You can expect a complete oral health exam after your dental cleaning. If the team discovers tooth decay or gum disease, they discuss what treatments you need. Tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and other restorative dentistry services are available to protect your oral health.

If they find an infection and determine it’s caused by an infected tooth root, they can do root canal therapy. This treatment eliminates the infection and saves the tooth. Current root canal methods have made the procedure nearly painless.

Children and adults can also receive dental sealants, which provide an added layer of protection against tooth decay. The team applies a liquid plastic compound to the chewing surfaces of your back molars to create a barrier between your enamel and bacteria, food particles, and other cavity-causing debris.

How often do I need a dental cleaning?

NYC Dental Wellness and Bergen Dental Wellness team recommends that adults and children schedule a teeth cleaning and oral health exam every six months to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health complications.

Dental cleanings every six months allow the dental specialists to identify cavities and gum disease in their earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective.

Routine cleanings and other preventive dentistry services also save you time and money and give you the peace of mind that your teeth and gums are healthy.
