Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What is a professional teeth cleaning?

During a professional teeth cleaning at Hartsdale Dental Care, highly trained dental hygienists remove hard-to-reach plaque and tartar, you might have difficulty reaching when you brush and floss at home. 

Attending professional teeth cleanings at Hartsdale Dental Care every six months is one of the best ways to maintain exceptional oral health.

What are the benefits of teeth cleaning?

Some of the numerous benefits associated with professional teeth cleaning include:

  • Less plaque and tartar
  • A lower chance of tooth decay
  • Reduced risk of gum disease
  • Early detection of oral health problems
  • Whiter, healthier teeth and gums
  • Better overall health and wellness

The team at Hartsdale Dental Care makes dental cleaning a pleasant experience in a warm, welcoming environment to ease dental anxiety in patients of all ages.

What should I expect during in-office teeth cleaning?

When you arrive at Hartsdale Dental Care for a teeth cleaning appointment, compassionate staff members greet you. They show you to your dental chair and might take dental X-rays. A highly trained dental hygienist gently cleans and polishes your teeth using specialized dental tools and floss. Teeth cleaning at Hartsdale Dental Care is a routine and painless procedure.

Your provider also offers deep cleaning at or beneath your gum line if you have extensive plaque buildup or gum disease. Routine dental cleanings often last about 30-60 minutes. Hartsdale Dental Care specialists offer fluoride treatments and sealants to reduce your risk of tooth decay.

Dr. Woo can examine your teeth after each teeth cleaning to ensure you don’t have oral health problems requiring further treatment. He and his team offer fillings, dental bonding, crowns, root canals, and more if needed. 

The Hartsdale Dental Care experts also provide cosmetic procedures (teeth whitening, Invisalign®, veneers, etc.) to enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile.

How can I keep my teeth clean at home?

To ensure optimal oral health between professional teeth cleanings at Hartsdale Dental Care, brush your teeth at least two times a day with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Floss your teeth daily, and don’t chew on hard objects. 

Wear a mouthguard at night if you grind your teeth, and see Dr. Woo and his team every six months.

Don’t neglect your teeth and gums, which can diminish the appearance of your smile. To schedule teeth cleaning with Hartsdale Dental Care, call the office or book online today.
