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.

"Extraordinary expertise and state of the art tools, combined with warmth and kindness from all the staff, have well exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Kasarsky immediately built trust by showing me what he saw via a small camera, patiently explaining my options and addressing my concerns. His hygienist Marissa has set the bar for the most effective cleaning I have ever had - and the most gentle. The entire staff takes patient care to a whole new level. I can't imagine going elsewhere."- C.J. / Healthgrades / Dec 12, 2016
"NYC's Best Kept Secret For Dentists - I think there are no reviews of Dr Kasarsky because most of his patients are discreet about the services they use (think celebrities/news casters/politicians/authors). I was lucky to be referred to Dr. K by my boss and I while I'm definitely no celeb, I was warmly greeted and treated like family. I went in for teeth whitening, but they discovered some nerve issues in my molar that I just assumed I would have to live with. Dr. K apparently has the most advanced lasers and was thus able to treat my issue in just 1 session. And no pain! I now have a great white smile just in time for the summer and a pain free mouth. Would recommend to anyone!"- A. / Judy's Book / May 16, 2011
what to expect during a dental cleaning
A dental cleaning is usually done after a dental exam, which checks for any signs of decay, cavities, or other dental problems. During the dental cleaning, the hygienist removes any tartar or plaque buildup from the teeth with professional instruments. Then, the teeth are cleaned and polished the teeth to remove stains and brighten the enamel. A dental cleaning is usually performed without anesthesia, but patients with concerns like a strong gag reflex or anxieties, may talk to their dentist about adding a form of sedation.
how much does a dental cleaning Cost?
Dental cleanings usually cost $100 - $200, but most dental insurance plans cover most or all of the patient’s cost. Our office will confirm the patient’s coverage before sending a bill.
