Dental Cleaning Q & A

What is a dental cleaning like?

A dental cleaning usually happens after your dental exam. Your comprehensive oral exam at 63rd Street Dental includes bite, gum tissue, and teeth evaluation as well as digital X-rays to check for problems under the gums and inside the teeth. Then, the 63rd Street Dental team recommends the type of dental cleaning best suited for you.

A standard dental cleaning starts with a gentle plaque and tartar removal. Then, a tiny rotating toothbrush covers all tooth surfaces, applying a professional-grade toothpaste. Your treatment also includes professional flossing. 

Following your dental cleaning, the 63rd Street Dental team may recommend a fluoride treatment because it offers extra protection against tooth decay. The team can also make customized recommendations after your dental cleaning, including tips about brushing and flossing techniques so you can improve your teeth and gum health at home.

Caring, highly trained professionals perform all dental cleanings at 63rd Street Dental, which ensures that it's a comfortable process for you. 

What is a deep dental cleaning?

A deep dental cleaning, also commonly referred to as scaling and root planing is an in-depth cleaning that includes your teeth and tooth roots. Scaling cleans the teeth and below the gum line to remove plaque and tartar. Root planing then smooths your tooth roots and enables reattachment when your teeth are loose because of gum gaps. 

The 63rd Street Dental team may recommend a deep dental cleaning if you have gum disease (periodontal disease) or if you're at risk for it. Because a deep dental cleaning is so extensive, you'll generally receive anesthesia for this type of treatment. 

How frequently do I need a dental cleaning?

63rd Street Dental recommends professional dental cleanings every six months. Following a strict dental cleaning schedule is one of the smartest moves you can make. It helps you maintain great oral health, and can even improve your whole-body health. Studies show that regular teeth cleanings can reduce your risk of pneumonia, heart attack, and stroke. 

At 63rd Street Dental, the caring team makes it easy to get the comfortable cleanings you need. Book your dental cleaning in New York City by using the online scheduler, or by calling the office today.
