At All City Cosmetic Dental Care, we encourage patients to visit as directed by the American Dental Association. At least every six months, patients of all ages should attend routine cleanings and evaluations with their dentist.

What should I expect with dental cleanings and examinations?
At All City Cosmetic Dental Care, Dr. Boris Yusupov and his team in South Huntington, New York, educate patients on what they can expect during an oral exam, deep cleaning of the teeth, and education on home oral hygiene habits.
During the exam, Dr. Yusupov and his team will check for any indications of oral health problems, including gum disease, tooth decay, or other dental issues. They will also inspect your gums for signs of infection or inflammation. Dental x-rays may be taken to give a detailed view of what is going on beneath the surface of the teeth and gums. By evaluating the smile’s health, our team can develop a plan of action to address any potential or existing problems that may occur.
Deep cleanings involve removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria from between the teeth and underneath the gum line. Scaling instruments are used during this process to ensure that even hard-to-reach areas are thoroughly cleaned and free of debris. Afterward, polishing instruments help polish away any remaining residue.
