Home 5 Dental Health 5 Cleanings


Maintaining good oral habits is crucial to keep the teeth and gums healthy. But while brushing and flossing can help you avoid unscheduled dental visits, these practices won’t be able to get rid of cavities and tartar buildup in your teeth and gums. This is why you need dental cleanings twice a year.

Your dental hygienist or dentist will be the one performing the dental cleaning. The procedure involves the use of special instruments that can remove cavities in hard to reach areas or areas that cannot be removed with brushing and flossing alone. Dental cleanings are also able to eliminate hard and soft deposits which may lead to gum disease if not addressed right away. The cleaning process involves tooth scaling, polishing and debridement.

Benefits of Regular Dental Cleanings

  • It prevents bad breath.
  • It helps keep your smile bright.
  • It prevents gum disease.
  • It can detect early signs of dental problems.
  • It keeps you healthy overall.

Maintain good oral health by getting dental cleanings every 6 months. Please call our office at (516) 268-5830 to schedule an appointment.
