Dental Cleanings Q & A

What are Dental Cleanings?

Even if you brush and floss as directed by your dentist at Smile Design Manhattan, you may not be able to remove all the plaque and tartar that builds up on your teeth. Dental cleanings are designed to remove what you can’t, so you lessen your risk of gum disease and improve your overall health.

The dental hygienists at Smile Design Manhattan use the most advanced tools and techniques to improve oral health. The experienced team understands that many people fear going to the dentist or getting their teeth cleaned, but you don’t have to worry about pain or discomfort at Smile Design Manhattan.

The office was designed specifically for those who fear the dentist or have had bad experiences elsewhere.

Your comfort is the top priority, especially because regular dental cleanings are vital for both your oral and general health.

How Often Do I Need Dental Cleanings?

Your dental expert at Smile Design Manhattan determines how often you should come to the office for dental cleanings. The frequency of your cleanings may depend on your oral health and medical history. In general, you should visit the office for your dental cleanings every six months.

What Can I Expect During a Dental Cleaning?

Dental cleanings at Smile Design Manhattan are gentle and comprehensive. Before your dental hygienist begins, your teeth and gums are examined for decay and disease.

Then, with a gentle hand, your hygienist removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth and under your gums using a special dental tool. Your teeth are then cleaned, polished, and flossed. Once your teeth have been thoroughly cleaned, fluoride is applied to strengthen your teeth and stop or prevent tooth decay.

If the dental hygienist finds anything of concern during your dental cleaning, it’s noted for your dentist, who will also make an evaluation.

Whether it’s your first time to the office, or it’s your annual visit, you can always expect:

  • An examination by the dentist
  • Digital X-rays
  • Dental cleaning


In addition to cleaning your teeth, the dental hygienists at Smile Design Manhattan also keep detailed records of your appointment to help ensure you get the best care at your next visit.

Dental cleanings should be part of your general health and wellness plan. To schedule your dental cleaning, call Smile Design Manhattan today or request an appointment online.
