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.
Dental Cleanings Reviews
"Dr. Kasarsky and his team make me smile! My smile is my signature, and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else!"- DH / Office Visit / Feb 13, 2018
"If you need top notch dental work performed, look no further and get your mouth over to Jason Kasarsky's office. Perfectionist? You better believe it. Jason has a dynamite personality, humble, goes to great lengths to explain what's going on every step of the way during procedures. If a dental assistant is lucky enough to darken his doorstep as an employee, it won't take long for them to recognize the master that he is. During one's office visit, it's crystal clear that Jason is 100% mentoring at all times. While employed at Jason's office, the assistant will acquire some very valuable experience far beyond what was taught in school. Jason has it all... great manners, respectful, great etiquette. In my many years visiting his office, he's never exhibited one iota of ego, this cat's a pro. Jason's gorgeous office sports all the latest high tech equipment so peak performance is the usual, not to mention the nicest staff, and a great hygienist for those periodic cleanings. Jason is the man! I hope I die before Jason retires, because I know finding a substitute for Jason Kasarsky would be no easy task."- J.M. / Google / Sep 05, 2020
"For several reasons, I didn’t see a dentist for years before I was convinced to make an appointment with Dr.K. I came in (nervous) for a cleaning and to see what kind of "shape" my teeth were in, being that it had been so many years. I knew that he was nice, but I didn’t know how meticulous he was with his work. I walked out smiling with a plan for my teeth in place. I called my husband immediately who badly needed to see a dentist as well. He saw Dr.K that same week!"- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 07, 2021
"Wonderful as always. Hardly any wait. New office is great. Cleaning thorough. Things always explained clearly. Very friendly staff."- TD / ZocDoc / Oct 23, 2020
"I had neglected my teeth for years and was in need of care. At the time I was working out of a midtown Manhattan office. One day I walked by the dental practice of Dr. Kasarsky (when he had a street level office). Something told me to give it a try so I went in and made an appointment and as they say, the rest is history. Because of my past neglect I required extensive teeth and gum work to get back to a healthy state. Mission accomplished. Throughout the years, the professionalism and skill of Dr. Kasarsky and his staff have been top notch. I no longer work in Manhattan but I still make the trek in whenever I need work or a cleaning. (Thank you Marissa.) Recently, I thought I had a painful dental issue but it was caused by a stretched muscle attached to the jaw. Quickly diagnosed and resolved by Dr. Kasarsky. I would not consider going anywhere else."- E. / Google / Dec 12, 2021

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.

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.

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.
