Dental Cleanings An Overview
Roslyn, NY dentist Dr. Diana Pop encourages patients of all ages to have their teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year as part of their comprehensive preventive dental care. Our registered dental hygienists provide thorough and gentle teeth cleanings in our beautiful and comfortable dental office. Routine dental cleanings allow for early diagnosis of developing dental concerns preventing deterioration in your overall oral wellness.
A professional dental cleaning removes the plaque and tartar buildup that serves as breeding grounds for bacteria. Performed by an experienced hygienist, professional cleanings can go beyond what your at-home routine can accomplish, thoroughly cleaning all surfaces of the teeth. Patients who receive regular cleanings are less likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
The Importance of Routine Teeth Cleanings
A professional tooth cleaning can help you maintain a lasting and natural smile. In between dentist office visits, brushing and flossing twice a day help to keep your teeth clean and strong. For patients more prone to decay or gum disease, Dr. Pop may recommend additional visits in order to maintain optimal dental health. Keeping your smile clean and healthy benefits both your oral and overall health. Dr. Pop also offers pediatric dentistry to monitor the development of teeth in younger patients.
