Has it been more than six months since you last visited the dentist for a professional dental cleaning? If so, we invite you to contact us today! Routine dental cleanings are the key to a healthy smile. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We recommend that you visit our office every six months for a professional dental cleaning; regular cleanings can help to keep you healthy and save you money in the long run. During your professional teeth cleaning in Tenafly, New Jersey, we will:
- Remove the plaque and dental calculus (hardened plaque, also known as tartar) from your teeth
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your teeth and gums for signs of damaging conditions such as tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease
- Check your existing restorations, such as fillings or crowns, for needed repairs or maintenance
We may also use advanced diagnostic tools, such as dental X-rays or extra-oral cameras, to get a closer look at your smile and better understand your oral health. Based on our findings, Dr. Sherwin Cheng may recommend further preventive or restorative treatments to improve the health of your smile.
