Hygiene & Preventive Care

Proper dental hygiene forms the cornerstone of good oral health. The dentists at 209 NYC Dental provide comprehensive hygiene services for patients throughout New York City, including routine cleanings and guidance in proper home care to help patients keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. The hygienist is the first line of defense in diagnosing and treating oral pathology. The hygienist carefully examines each tooth, then a detailed soft tissue exam, then a studious review of the x-rays, followed by an oral cancer screening exam. The hygienist will further review medical histories, drug allergies, recent operations etc. After the cleaning (prophylaxis) the hygienist will go over nutrition (stress a decrease in refined sugars), brushing and flossing. The hygienist will answer questions about toothpaste, mouthwash, sleep apnea, crooked teeth and any other concerns that the patient may have. This information will be conferenced with the dentist so that we deliver the most coordinated treatment possible.

This is the first dental practice I look forward to going to. The front desk staff, hygienists and dentists are some of the friendliest and best in Manhattan. I always look forward to my teeth cleanings and if I need work done, I know I'm in great care. Also, Dr. Ahh did my Invisalign and I've never been more proud to smile!
