Hygiene & Preventive Care in New York

Dental Cleaning NYC

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, toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, sleep apnea, snoring, grinding or clenching teeth at night (bruxism), crooked teeth, cosmetics and any other concerns that the patient may have. This information will be conferenced with the dentist so that we deliver the most coordinated, comprehensive treatment possible.

I have a fear of going to the dentist and had not been in several years. I immediately felt at ease upon entering this business and was treated with respect and great care. The hygienist was friendly and kept checking on me to make sure I was okay, and the dentist himself took the time to get to know me, address any fears and concerns, as well as make plans for the future. I left having three numbers to contact the dentist and my hygienist if necessary and have decided to make this place my dental home. Plus, they were very willing to work with me on a payment schedule given that I have no insurance. I’m so grateful and impressed.

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.
