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!

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!

Prime Dental care has a great friendly staff. I had a wonderful experience with my hygienist Kate, she was very thorough, professional, and kind! Dr. Ma was informative and did a wonderful job of explaining everything. Would highly recommend Prime Dental Care!

Aidan L.

I came in for my first appointment with severe pain in my wisdom tooth and they were very helpful from the start. I don’t have insurance, but they have an in-house plan that’s very affordable and can save over $1000 a year and I’m definitely signing up for it. The hygienist was super kind and informative and the dentist was the same. I got here 30 mins early and they started me as soon as I finished my paperwork anyway. Thanks to everyone here for a great experience.

Vikram J.

Maggie was so detailed and perfect at her job. Was happy with the cleaning and the guidance provided to keep by teeth and gums healthy. Would recommend this place to everyone
