Exams & Cleanings

It is recommended that you go to a dentist near you for a cleaning at least once or twice a year. Most insurance companies cover annual cleanings, so be sure to take full advantage of your benefits and schedule an appointment with Smile Up Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics today. Our kid-friendly dental clinic is devoted to the comfort, safety, and care of our patients. We have flexible appointment times available for exams & cleanings in New York, NY.

What to Expect

During a dental cleaning and examination, our experienced team of dentistry experts will carefully clean each tooth using the latest dental tools. Our dentist will examine the teeth, mouth, and jaw for any dental problems during the appointment. Please arrive for your appointment fifteen minutes early and bring your insurance and ID cards with you.

The dental cleaning and exam will take less than an hour to complete. The cleaning portion of the appointment usually takes about 30 minutes for the team to thoroughly clean each tooth. Then the dentist will examine the teeth and mouth for problems for about 15 minutes. The team will recommend treatments for any potential problems and work with you to create a customized treatment plan.

Why Do You Need Exams & Cleanings

One of the main benefits of regular exams & cleanings is that they give the dentist a chance to look for dental and oral problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. When left untreated, many dental problems will worsen. Catching problems early can help to save you hundreds of dollars in dental bills down the line.

Oral cancer is a deadly form of cancer that affects tens of thousands of patients each year. Smokers are at a higher risk of developing oral cancer. This form of cancer is often first noticed by a dentist during an exam. Catching cancer early on allows you to get life-saving treatment before cancer further develops.
