What is a Dental Cleaning?

In order to maintain optimal dental health, general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman, highly recommends that every patient schedule a professional cleaning every 6 months or as needed. Professional dental cleanings help to remove more tartar and decay from the teeth than regular brushing, which helps to prevent infections, cavities, and tooth decay. By undergoing routine dental cleanings at her office in Midtown Manhattan, Dr. Veytsman's patients can ensure that their teeth are healthy and strong. A professional dental cleaning and polishing keeps the teeth whiter for a more brilliant smile.

What are the benefits of dental cleanings?

Our Manhattan, NY patients who get regular dental cleanings enjoy a number of benefits, such as:

  • Cleaner, brighter smiles
  • Routine, established relationship with our practitioners
  • Preventive care that catches disease before it happens or in its earliest stages
  • Ability to be seen at a moment's notice rather than wait weeks or months for a spot to open up

Who Is A Candidate For Dental Cleanings?

Anyone with teeth! The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends patients schedule a professional cleaning two times each year. A cleaning may prevent cavities because plaque buildup, the leading cause of tooth decay, is removed. A dental cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your enamel. If you’d like to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, boost your health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, schedule a cleaning at our Manhattan, NY office.

What to Expect during a Dental Cleaning

Dental cleanings usually start with an examination of the patient’s teeth. During the examination, Dr. Veytsman will look for any signs of damage, cavities, or decay. The patient’s teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools. Patient will have the opportunity to discuss the health status of their teeth with Dr. Veytsman, as well as discuss home dental health suggestions.

What Happens After a Dental Cleaning?

After receiving cleaning services at Dr. Veytsman's Manhattan office, patients should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by the dentist during their treatment. Patients should brush their teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss. If given special instructions or items to use by our office, such as specific mouthwash or toothpaste, patients should follow the directions given and schedule an appointment for follow-up.

How Much Does a Dental Cleaning Cost?

Considered a form of preventative health care, most insurance companies cover some, if not all, of the cost of a routine cleaning. Our office will check with the patient’s insurance policy before sending a bill to the patient of any remaining payment due. The overall cost for a cleaning varies based on the condition of the patient’s teeth.
