NYCDENTAL provides comprehensive Dental Cleaning & Exams. Most patients receive a dental exam during the same time they have their teeth cleaned, so they may not realize that these are actually two distinct services.
Regular dental exams and cleanings are critical parts of preventative health care. Signs and symptoms of some systemic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, might show up in a patient’s mouth first.
What occurs during patient’s dental exam varies based on their situation. However, most dental exams will include:
• Examining existing restorations
• Screening for tooth decay and gum disease
Your dental cleaning will be performed by one of our dental hygienists. Again, what occurs during a patient’s dental cleaning varies based on their unique situation. However, most dental cleanings will include:
• Removing plaque
• Removing tarter
• Polishing teeth
