Why You Should Get Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned Princeton, NJ
Teeth Cleaning Princeton NJ

If you practice great oral hygiene on a regular basis, you may be tempted not to get a professional cleaning twice a year. Some people think it’s not necessary, but the truth is, there are many benefits to going to the dentist every six months.

Preventative Dental Cleanings

It doesn’t matter how well, or how many times a day you brush your teeth; there is no possible way to remove all the plaque from all the crevices in your mouth. It’s nearly impossible to see and maneuver your toothbrush around these hidden areas.

The longer the plaque stays on your teeth, the harder it gets and turns into tenacious tartar buildup. Once it reaches that stage, only special instruments can remove it. That’s why it’s so important to visit your dental hygienist every six months. They have the knowledge, skill, and tools needed to get your teeth spic and span.

Periodic X-Rays

About once a year during your check-up we take radiographs of your teeth. Since not all dental conditions are visible by the naked eye, it’s important for us to see what’s really going on under the surface. Through dental x-rays, we can detect things like bone loss, dental abscesses, and decay between teeth.

Dental Exams

During your cleaning visit, our dentist will see you for an exam. They’ll look through your radiographs and check all of your teeth and gums thoroughly. During the oral exam, we look for conditions like jaw joint problems, gum recession, wear on your teeth, and suspicious lesions that could be oral cancer.

Visit the Dentist Every Six Months

Now that you see the importance of regular preventative visits, take the first step to get on track with your dental cleanings. Call our office today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you!

Ms P.

My husband has been going to Dr Ma and this practice for many years and swears by them so I thought I would try it out. Very pleasant and professional with a great location and good availability, they respond to queries in a timely way and provide reminders for appointments via text which is great since some practices appear to be in the dark ages on some of the practical stuff. Everyone seems to try to ensure you have a pleasant visit (in spite of being to the dentist!) so kudos to the whole operation. Also, a lot of care has been taken to go above and beyond the requirements of hygiene during this pandemic including state-of-the-art air filtration systems.

Jay J.

Starting from reception to the assistant to the doctors they are so amazing. I have major dental anxiety and they were above and beyond sweet and nice to me. I have come back after a root canal and I can go for a run I feel that good and comfortable with them. They rock! They are awesome- I highly recommend this place

Xiao L.

I’m experiencing a very painful toothache during the COVID-19 period. Thanks for Dr. Ma’s quick response using the “teledentistry”, I got a timely and precise diagnosis without having to step out of my house. I really appreciated their help at this moment!
