Teeth Cleaning in New York

Our mouth is the gateway to our body and overall health. Just like our internal organs, having healthy teeth is essential for balanced digestive function and overall health. Our teeth allow us to breakdown food so that our bodies can absorb their nutrients. Furthermore, this part of our dental anatomy also allows us to speak properly and directly impacts the position of the lips.

Professional teeth cleaning offers many advantages that even those with excellent oral hygiene can benefit from. Dental cleanings improve oral health, prevent the development of oral diseases, and help Dr. Davidowitz identify any potential problems before symptoms begin. At Luxury Dentistry NYC, we strive to offer our patients the best possible dental cleaning in NYC, so book an appointment today!

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

Regular teeth cleaning and checkup appointments should be part of everyone’s routine. The American Dental Association strongly recommends going for a professional dental cleaning every six months, at minimum.

Dental cleaning with our hygienist in NYC typically involves the following:

  • Any pertinent medical information that may impact the patient’s oral health is reviewed, including medications, pregnancy, diabetes or heart problems.
  • A digital X-ray series of the patient’s mouth. This is to help us identify any potential cavities, loose or degrading fillings, and any other problems that may not be immediately visible.
  • If the patient mentions any concerns with chewing, biting, or grinding in their sleep, Dr. Davidowitz can offer his expertise and discuss potential solutions such as a mouth guard, orthodontics, or a neuromuscular blocker treatment to treat TMJ.
  • Our NYC expert hygienist may apply special numbing gels to the gums for a more comfortable dental cleaning.
  • Your dental hygiene specialist will thoroughly clean the surface of each tooth. Plaque and tartar can build-up on the surface of teeth, and may not be fully removed with regular brushing or flossing.
  • Using an innovative and painless piezo scaler, we can safely remove plaque and tartar build-up. This step is important, as there are many areas between teeth that may not be fully cleansed with regular oral hygiene maintenance.
  • Finally, the teeth will be polished, which may also help remove surface stains on the teeth.
  • Dr. Davidowitz will then conduct a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth.

At Luxury Dentistry NYC, we believe in providing the best possible NYC dental cleaning experience for each of our patients. We have a state-of-the-art clinic and pride ourselves in providing a soothing, spa-like atmosphere, which includes pleasant aromas, massage chair in our treatment rooms, paraffin wax hand treatments, a flatscreen TV with Netflix and Pandora, as well as other elements to help our patients relax.

Laser Bacterial Reduction

Before & After

At Luxury Dentistry NYC we offer laser bacterial reduction, or LBR, a modern, fast, and painless preventive procedure prior to every dental cleaning appointment. LBR uses laser technology to effectively target the bacteria that live in the pockets around your teeth.

Bacteria persist by migrating beneath the gums and into the underlying tissue. Where traditional NYC teeth cleaning is limited to the removal of surface deposits in the pockets of your mouth, a laser can extend beneath the tissue to disrupt and destroy the bacteria.

The painless heat of the laser thermally dehydrates the biofilms. Since dehydration is lethal to bacteria, the potential for infection and gum detachment is significantly decreased. Furthermore, there is a decrease in these smelly pathogens for up to 3 months, which greatly reduces odors caused by these bacteria.

Benefits of LBR

Lurking bacteria have the added danger of cross-contamination, which spreads infections to other areas besides our mouths. Bacteria can even make their way into our bloodstream, plaguing our bodies with oral pathogens. Laser bacterial reduction is the best way to protect against infection and sickness caused by the spread of oral bacteria.

Furthermore, LBR is a great choice because it is:

  • Quick - usually takes about 5 minutes
  • Painless
  • Able to kill bacteria that are out of the reach of superficial cleanings

Because it is painless and quick, it is easy to begin an LBR regimen right away. If you have questions about this laser bacterial reduction in NY, please ask your hygienist or Dr. Davidowitz and they will be happy to clear up any doubts.

Risks Associated with Professional Dental Cleaning

Some of the potential risks and temporary side-effects associated with professional dental cleaning include:

  • Sore or bleeding gums
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bacterial invasion, which is why we use LBR as a countermeasure
  • Temperature sensitivity

There are no known side-effects to LBR as most patients do not report any sensation during or after the laser is applied.

How much does a dental cleaning cost?

Dental cleaning costs may vary depending on your location, the dental specialist’s expertise level, and other factors. In order to get an accurate quote, the best thing to do is to consult with an oral care specialist in your area that offers dental cleanings with LBR.

Is professional teeth cleaning necessary?

The American Dental Association recommends at least one professional teeth cleaning every 6 months in order to maintain your teeth and gums in good condition. Some patients may benefit from more frequent visits, so get in touch with your local dentist and book a consultation to find out what’s best for you.

How do professionals clean teeth?

There are different approaches to professional dental cleaning, but in most cases, your oral care specialist will use a physical or ultrasonic scraper to remove plaque and debris accumulation. Then, the teeth are flossed thoroughly and gently brushed with a specialized paste before rinsing.

Can I get my teeth cleaned every 3 months?

Some patients may benefit from getting a professional cleaning every three months, even if there isn’t visible plaque and tartar accumulation. This will depend on elements like your current health, age, diet, and other factors, so ask your dental care expert about his or her opinion on the matter next time you have a consultation.

What happens if you don't get your teeth cleaned?

Dental cleanings help prevent the development of serious oral issues. Some of these include:

  • Tooth decay
  • Staining
  • Gum disease
  • Other health issues
