Dental Cleaning Reviews
"I’ve been going to NowDental of Suffolk for a few years now and could not be happier with the level of care they provide. I have seen numerous dentists at this location and each one was knowledgeable and truly cared about my oral health and comfort. I have had routine cleanings and a few cavities filled without issue. I have been seeing Dr. Sayed for the last few months for both regular visits and for my Candid aligners appointments and he is fantastic! He recommended Candid aligners for me and the process has been going so well. The hygienists are all amazing as well. They are personable and provide great care and bedside manner. I also want to shout out Olivia, one of the receptionists who works up front. She is such a sweetheart and makes each visit to the office even more pleasant! I definitely recommend NowDental of Suffolk."- D.R. / Google / May 11, 2023

Who Should Have Dental Cleanings?
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning twice a year. Following your child's first birthday, we can help you determine when your child is ready for an appointment. A cleaning may prevent cavities since built-up plaque, the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A dental cleaning will also address tartar and stains on your enamel. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your overall health, and save money in the long run, schedule a cleaning for your whole family at NowDental of Suffolk.
What Should I Expect from My Teeth Cleaning?
A professional cleaning starts by removing the plaque and tartar deposits on your enamel, which can be difficult to treat on your own with just daily brushing and flossing. Special instruments are used to carefully scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, a device with ultrasonic technology addresses large areas of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld instruments, such as a scaler or curette, are used to remove any remaining buildup. Each tooth will be scaled to get all the plaque and tartar. After your teeth have been cleaned, your enamel will be polished to strengthen the enamel and remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment may be performed after the cleaning.
What Can I Expect After My Dental Cleaning?
Our team may suggest cleanings more frequently if you have other oral health concerns, like gum disease. Throughout your appointment, we will help you develop a routine for good oral health at home by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will focus on your specific concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so make sure you keep up with your regular dental appointments at NowDental of Suffolk.
Will My Insurance Pay for My Dental Cleaning?
A professional teeth cleaning is considered a preventive procedure so it's typically covered by insurance. Our office will talk to your insurance company to determine your coverage before we calculate any remaining amount. If you do not have dental insurance, please ask about the different payments we accept, including medical financing.
