Dental Cleaning Reviews
"I am aghast at some of the the recent reviews for Dr. Steven Roth. My experience with Dr. Roth, was professional with high integrity throughout the time spent on my cosmetic dental work as well as general dentistry from 2015-to present. This included general repair of past dental work, and the best teeth cleaning I have ever experienced. The reviews in Jan 2018 and Feb 2018 are surprising in their intensity, which should be alarming to the reader as the reviewers showed no photos of the "bad work" they allegedly received. I had a bite issue, the fix: a simple return visit to fix it and it was fine after that. All my upper teeth were changed and replaced in three visits. They are not the cheapest dental office in Manhattan, however, I would say in my 20+ years while living in Manhattan, they were the most consistent. My smile is always complimented and I feel like I have lost ten years thanks to the cutting edge technology used by the offices of Smiles NY. Again - 5 stars to Dr. Roth - Cheryl Fleming-Kniffen"- C.F. / Yelp / Feb 14, 2018
"I'm new to NY and this was my first Visit to SmilesNY. I was relaxed the whole time and learned so much about my guns, teeth, jaw and bite. I didn't know at my age that my teeth could get so clean after just one initial exam and cleaning! Thank you!!"- D.D. / Google / Nov 18, 2017
"Going to the dentist is usually not fun... but dealing with the staff at SmilesNY makes the process so much better. I have my cleanings with Janice who leaves me feeling like I lost two pounds by the time I leave the chair. Dr. Roth is always encouraging and lets me know when we are almost done which eases my anxiety. Plus he usually has some funny anecdote to get you to smile and distract you before he gets to work ;-) All of the staff is wonderful, pleasant and professional. The best!!!"- A.D. / Google / Apr 18, 2015
"The best dental practice in New York! Dr. Chase and his staff are extremely knowledgable and friendly. Their equipment is state of the art and the technicians are thorough and comforting. I came in for a teeth cleaning and to update my x-rays and now I will never go anywhere else. Maria is absolutely amazing I've never felt more comfortable and healthier after a teeth cleaning. So happy to have found this practice and look forward to a future with a brighter smile."- H.C. / Google / Apr 18, 2017
"I've been a patient at SmilesNY for many years and although all I need is a periodic cleaning their attention to detail is outstanding. If you can get on Janice's schedule for your cleaning she is amazing!"- M.A. / Google / Apr 18, 2015
The American Dental Association (ADA) advises people to schedule professional dental cleanings twice each year. Infants should get their first dental exam before their first birthday and after that, your dentist will help you determine when your child is ready for their first dental appointment. A professional dental cleaning can prevent cavities since plaque buildup, the biggest reason for tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also address tartar and stains on the enamel. If you would like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a professional cleaning for your whole family at SmilesNY.
What To Expect
Your dental cleaning will start by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth, which can be hard to treat on your own no matter how often you brush and floss. Advanced tools are used to scale without harming the tooth. To start, an ultrasonic device loosens bigger chunks of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, a fine handheld instrument like a curette or scaler will be used to remove the remaining pieces. Each tooth needs to be scaled to get all the buildup. Once the teeth are clean, the enamel will be polished to remove stains. If needed or requested, a fluoride treatment may be done after the cleaning.
Your SmilesNY dentist may suggest cleanings more frequently if you are dealing with concerns such as gum disease. During your treatment, your dentist can help you come up with a home routine for good oral health by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will address your needs. These can be very beneficial for your teeth, overall health, and wallet, so make sure you schedule and go to your dental cleanings at SmilesNY.
A professional cleaning is considered a preventive procedure, so it is usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will contact your dental insurance to determine your specific coverage and then bill for any out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have dental insurance, please talk to a member of our financial team about different payments we accept, including medical financing.
