What is a dental cleaning?
Even if you are brushing and flossing your teeth perfectly at home, it can still be beneficial to have a professional dental cleaning at 286 Madison Dental twice a year. We utilize advanced equipment for our bi-annual professional cleanings. The cleanings treat tartar and plaque that has built up, and the enamel is polished for a brighter, healthier smile. After your treatment, you can ask for tips on caring for your teeth at home and learn if any areas need extra care. A professional dental cleaning will allow our team to look for any areas of concern in your mouth that might require maintenance. Getting a dental cleaning is a crucial step in maintaining your dental health, so schedule an appointment for yourself and your family at our New York, NY location.
Who is the best candidate for a dental cleaning?
The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests people schedule professional dental cleanings twice yearly. Children should have their first dental exam before they turn one. A professional cleaning may help you avoid cavities because plaque buildup, the biggest reason for tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also address stains and tartar on your enamel. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your overall health, and save money in the long run, make an appointment for a professional cleaning at 286 Madison Dental.
286 Madison Dental Reviews
Dr Kimon is the most gentle dentist with a calm and understanding bedside manner. i am extemely nervous when i go to any dentist visit typically but todays visit went exceptionally well! i had a dental cleaning with the hygienist and Dr Kimon replaced an old crown. I highly recommend Dr Kimon to any person with a fear of the dentist.
I did a cleaning treatment yesterday and it was excellent. The service is amazing and the aesthetics are excellent. The opinion of the attending physician is very professional and I will return to them for more treatments. I have been to a number of dental clinics in the city and this is definitely a top clinic
Dr. Shmuely has become like family to my family! We are very appreciative of the "wholistic" dental care approach of Dr. Shmuely and his office: Iggly their dental assistant; dental hygienist Daniella & all their colleagues: Specifically Talia \ Tamar & other front office colleagues who know how to deal with insurance claims which to me is another language; however they work with you and explain everything. This wholistic approach has restored my dental health beyond a shadow of doubt! Their dental practice by being disciplined and sticking to a solid dental health plan has helped transform my dental health care to: 1) One in which my gums are much healthier 2) My older crowns are slowly but surely being replaced mitigating infection from decay buildup 3) All procedures are fully explained which to me is important 4) Lastly having quarterly dental hygienist cleanings. In additional to this very professional dental experience their practice also focuses on the what I call humanistic approach: I commented to Dr. Shmuely: 1) That it is such a nice touch for his dental practice to send out a congratulations happy birthday recognition. It exemplifies the extra patient relationship they build with their patients. This also translates into excellent dental care by sticking to the basics of doing the right thing! 2) In addition the office takes every COVID 19 precaution possible. 3) I feel it is also a great testimonial that Dr. Shmuely is a part time professor at NYU dental school. One of the premiere dental schools in our nation. This tells me he remains on the cutting edge state of the art dental practices \ procedures and technologies. I continue to say: one cannot speak more highly of the prompt & professional treatment we receive from Dr. Shmuely. From the front desk staff greeting to the x-ray technician and working with Dr. Shmuely. I particularly liked the sound step by step treatment plans they both put together for me. They clearly communicated as well as addressed all my questions and concerns. Thank you again, Dr. Shmuely along with your staff and believe it or not I am looking forward to continuing my dental care. Regards, Bruce & Marta Vapnitsky
Dr. Shmuely is an excellent dentist, proficient in CAD and makes excellent crowns. I've been seeing him for decades, and my late husband was also his patient, as is our son. Dental hygienist Daniella has a gentle touch and accommodates my dislike of the Kelvitron by doing a manual cleaning.Dr. Kaufman did a great job on flap surgery, removing infection and doing extensive bone grafts, so that my implant could be saved. I appreciate the consideration in his having Mozart playing already when I walked into the room for surgery (I used to bring my own to calm me), and the follow up call. The aftermath was mostly painless, and I'm able to eat normally.
I went in for a cleaning and consultation before surgery and my dental plan and as always the staff was amazing! The office was clean and I’m obsessed w my hygienist Daniella! If you can request her, do so. The absolute best cleaning I’ve ever had. Love this staff so much

What happens on the day of teeth cleaning?
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, which can be difficult to remove on your own, no matter how often you brush and floss. Professional instruments are used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, a device with ultrasonic technology breaks up bigger areas of plaque and tartar with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Next, a fine handheld instrument like a scaler or curette will remove the remaining pieces. Each tooth needs to be scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. Once your teeth are scaled, we will polish the enamel to remove stains. A fluoride treatment will be performed after the cleaning if needed or requested.
What happens after a dental cleaning?
Our team may suggest cleanings more often for some patients with concerns such as gum disease. During your appointment, our team or an assistant can help you develop a routine for good oral health at home by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that will focus on your needs. These can be advantageous for your teeth, overall health, and wallet, so attend your dental appointments at our New York City office.
