What to Expect: We begin with a comprehensive examination of teeth and gums in order to create a treatment plan that is customized for your unique oral needs. Your examination will include low radiation digital x-rays to detect decay between the teeth, as well as an oral cancer screening. We then use both hand instruments and an ultrasonic scaler to gently break up plaque and tartar that build up below the gum line. Our team will also tell you what you need to know about home care between visits so that future cleanings will be effortless and easy.

At Central Park Dentists, it is our firm belief that dental education is the key to our patient’s success in maintaining a healthy, long-lasting smile. The accumulation of plaque and calculus around the teeth and under the gums can cause a cascade of dental problems like tooth decay, gingivitis, bone loss, halitosis (bad breath), and eventually, tooth loss. Routine hygiene visits, at either of our Manhattan or Brooklyn locations, rids the mouth of harmful bacteria and ensures you can enjoy a lifetime of exceptional oral health.
