what is a dental cleaning?

The first line of defense against cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues is a professional dental cleaning by Manhattan cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jason Kasarsky and his staff, every six months. After a cleaning, also known as a prophylaxis, the teeth feel smooth and healthy. Dental cleanings help patients be proactive rather than reactive with their dental care, and many dental problems can be caught and treated before they grow into a larger issue. A dental cleaning also helps erase some of the stains on the enamel for a brighter, whiter smile.
