Dental Cleanings Q & A

How often should I visit the dentist?

For regular dental exams and teeth cleanings, Dr. Sinensky and Dr. Krasilnikov recommend scheduling visits twice a year, or once every six months.

These bi-annual dental visits will help keep your oral hygiene in check and ensure that you don’t have any major dental concerns, such as cavities, teeth grinding, crooked teeth, and more.


Why do I need to see the dentist?

A lot of people assume that they don’t need to schedule visits to the dentist if they aren’t experiencing any serious problems, like a cracked tooth or missing teeth. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Frankly, delaying your bi-annual visits now could set you up for major oral health problems in the long run.

Without regular visits, you might not realize you’re in the beginning stages of:

  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth loss
  • Cavities
  • Gingivitis
  • Bone loss
  • Bad breath (which often has an underlying cause)
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • TMD(temporomandibular joint disorder)

If left untreated, these dental issues can ultimately balloon into major problems that require extensive treatment, even surgery in some cases.


What can I expect from my routine dental exams and tooth cleanings?

A routine cleaning and dental exam at Dental House in Greenwich Village can help eliminate the unhealthy bacteria attacking your teeth and gums.

Once your teeth are free and clear, you’ll feel better, look amazing, and enjoy a healthy smile, as long as you keep up your oral hygiene at home.

This means brushing your teeth for approximately two minutes, twice a day, and flossing regularly.

Your dentist may also advise avoiding overly sugary treats or acidic foods that can cause tooth sensitivity.

A routine dental exam and cleaning typically takes about one hour, so you should schedule your regular visits appropriately and allow enough time for the whole appointment.

Here are a few things you can expect from your visit:

  • Safe digital X-rays that pinpoint tooth decay
  • An oral cancer screening to give you peace of mind
  • Hand instruments and ultrasonic technology that gently removes plaque
  • A custom-designed treatment plan, if necessary
  • Tips on how to keep your oral health in check
