Overview

Even if you have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, it can still be beneficial for you to receive professional dental cleanings at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry twice each year. Using advanced equipment, a professional cleaning eliminates built-up plaque and tartar, and then polishes your enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. After your appointment, you can ask for tips on better home oral care and discover certain areas that may need more care. A professional cleaning will give Dr. Marianna Farber a chance to look for any issues in your mouth that may need care. As a vital step in keeping up your dental health, dental cleanings can be essential to preserving your smile. Contact our office to make appointments for dental cleanings for your family and yourself at our New York, NY location.

Best Candidates

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends that patients receive a professional cleaning at least two times each year. Additionally, infants should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, Dr. Farber can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A professional dental cleaning may help you avoid cavities because built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you would like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your oral health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a professional cleaning for your whole family at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry.

What To Expect

Your dental cleaning will start by addressing the tartar and plaque deposits on your enamel, which is hard to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Advanced tools are used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, a device with ultrasonic technology loosens large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, a fine handheld instrument such as a scaler or curette will remove the remaining pieces, and every tooth will be scaled to get all the buildup. After your teeth are clean, your enamel will be carefully polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment, especially for children, may be done following your cleaning.

Follow-Up

Dr. Farber may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Throughout your treatment, Dr. Farber or an assistant on her team will help you come up with a proper home routine for good oral health by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your needs. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health, so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry.

Insurance Coverage

A professional cleaning is a preventive treatment, so it's typically covered by insurance. A member of our office can talk to your dental insurance provider to understand your coverage before we bill for any remaining amount. If you don't have insurance, you can talk to Dr. Farber about payments we take at our practice and about medical financing.
