Dental Cleaning Chelsea NY

If you have received periodontal treatment for any form of gum disease, from gingivitis to moderate or severe periodontitis, it is important to remember that at-home daily cleanings are essential to your continued tooth and gum health. Following periodontal treatment at Chelsea Dental Arts, our dentists will sit down and talk to you about proper teeth and gum maintenance. Our Chelsea NYC dentists will recommend that you schedule regular periodontal and maintenance cleanings at least three times a year so that your pocket depths, where the gum disease first spread, can be carefully inspected for any signs of re-infection. Additionally, plaque and calculus will be removed from above and below the gum line.

Even if you commit to daily home cleanings, by brushing, flossing and rinsing your mouth, it doesn’t take much for plaque to build up inside your mouth. In fact, plaque that hasn’t been removed from your teeth can turn into calculus or tartar within twenty-four hours! Though daily home cleaning can control plaque and tartar formation, there are hard to reach areas of your mouth that will require the dental instruments used in a dental cleaning at Chelsea Dental Arts.

In addition to you periodontal cleaning and evaluation, your appointment with our dentists will consist of dental x-rays, which can detect decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. Additionally Drs. Galperin and Pristera will examination your existing restorations to make sure they are still properly sealed and stabilized. Next, they’ll evaluate your tooth surfaces for indication of tooth decay, as well as perform an oral cancer screening. Lastly, our dentists at Chelsea Dental Arts will recommend oral hygiene aids to assist with your at-home care, and polish your teeth to remove any remaining stains and plaque.

If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease and have sought treatment, be sure to have periodontal cleanings at Chelsea Dental Arts several times a year to keep the gum disease under control!
