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 break down 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.
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:

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.
Some of the potential risks and temporary side-effects associated with professional dental cleaning include:
There are no known side-effects to LBR as most patients do not report any sensation during or after the laser is applied.
When considering a dental cleaning, the cost may vary depending on what type of service you want. Whatever your needs are, explore all available options before making a decision.
It's essential to maintain your oral health with regular professional dental cleanings. Not only do they help keep your smiles brighter, but the removal of plaque and tartar buildup can prevent bigger issues from arising in the future.
Our experienced dental hygienists ensure your smile stays sparkling with thorough tartar and plaque removal. A scaler is utilized to give you the pearly whites of your dreams, using a small mirror for guided precision. The scraping sound associated with this process is normal and indicative that there may be more work required if tartar build-up has occurred.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is important, so we recommend that patients with recurring issues like gum disease or tooth decay visit us every 3 months. If you typically have a good level of oral health, though, visiting us twice per year should be enough to help maintain it going forward.
Professional cleaning is an essential part of dental health and prevention. Tartar can only be removed in this way, and if left unchecked, it can cause serious issues, including tooth decay, cavities, gum erosion, or even periodontitis. This severe form of gum disease involves swelling in the mouth and, unfortunately, leads to early tooth loss.
