Should I Get My Teeth Cleaned Regularly?

It is imperative you get your teeth cleaned and checked regularly for a variety of reasons, the main being the health of your teeth and overall body. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease by removing any foreign bacteria or films that can cling to the surface of your tooth and wreak havoc on your health.

The Dental Cleaning Procedure

  • The cleaning session begins with Dr. Pyon analyzing the areas surrounding the teeth where bacteria may hide and where bacteria is most evident. Dental x-rays also provide her with the appropriate knowledge of the structure of your teeth and jaw in order to identify any abnormalities or new, incoming teeth.
  • After the tooth and gum assessment, one of Dr. Pyon’s dental hygienists will clean the surfaces of your teeth with mild abrasives and special tools, all while staying on the lookout for any signs of gum disease.

As always, if you still have any questions about dental cleanings and exams in New York, we encourage you to give our Upper East Side, NY, office a call or a visit!
