It is a fact that teeth cleanings are the most effective ways of ensuring that the dentist is able to prevent to the best of his ability decay in a patients mouth and monitor any pre-exisiting conditions in order to ensure that you are receiving optimal dental care.
The American Dental Association has reccomended that visiting a dentist “regularly” for a cleaning every 6 months is best if we are to ensure optimal dental care. However for some people, the best frequency could be every 3 months if the dentist has to treat extensive periodontal disease. It is unfortunate but if are at higher risk for gum disease, you may need to visit a dentist more frequently.

What type of instruments or technology does New York Family Dental Arts use?
The traditional way to detect tooth decay was by touching the surface of the teeth with a metal probe. If the metal probe stuck, then there was a cavity. Using new laser technology, our dentists can detect early tooth decay without taking the chance of missing even the smallest cavities.
Are the cleanings given gentle?
Our hygienists will make sure that your cleaning is gentle and thorough. We are sensitive and understanding dental professionals who realize that not everybody is comfortable going to the dentist even if it is a regular cleaning.
Are injections and fillings painless?
If fillings are needed, our dentists will numb the area with a painless injection, then fill the cavity with a tooth-colored composite. . There is now no need for dark, silver fillings as we now use composite white fillings, also known as cosmetic fillings. These tooth-colored ceramic materials that we use are safe and extremely durable, and both Dr. Vaiman and Dr. Kessler able to custom color the filling or crown to match your natural teeth.
