Dental Cleanings & X-Rays in the North Arlington & Kearny Areas
About Dental Cleanings at Smile Design Specialists: Richard Ekstein, DMD
We recommend that you schedule routine dental cleanings in order to maintain optimal oral hygiene. These cleanings are important because they work to remove mineralized plaque that can develop even in patients who are proactive with their oral health. Brushing and flossing at home daily is wonderful, but even the most avid brusher will not be able to clean those “hard-to-reach” areas that we will.
How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
Generally, we recommend that you come into the office for a professional dental cleaning and examination at least once every six months. Preventative dentistry is an essential step in maintaining a healthy smile.
About Dental X-Rays at Smile Design Specialists: Richard Ekstein, DMD
Many of the diseases that can damage the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be detected during a basic oral exam. That’s why we perform x-rays that reveal areas of decay between the teeth or below fillings, bone infections, periodontal disease, abscesses or cysts, developmental abnormalities and some types of tumors that you do not want to leave untreated.
We only perform x-rays when we find it to be necessary and when we do, we are sure to adhere to all safety guidelines. Dr. Ekstein will be happy to answer any questions you may have about whether a dental x-ray is right for you.
We know it takes a lot of trust to put your oral health in someone’s hands, and we take that trust very seriously. If it has been six months or longer since your last dental appointment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch below or by dialing (201) 627-5060!
