Do you need to schedule a dental cleaning appointment? We're currently accepting new patients. We offer personalized care in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere we call Soft Touch, High Tech dentistry. A routine professional dental cleaning takes only about 45 minutes. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planing and polishing.
Scaling is the process of removing plaque and calculus from all tooth surfaces in a variety of methods, depending on the amount of plaque and calculus. Dental hygienists traditionally perform scaling by hand. However, new and advanced technology has led to more modern methods such as ultra sonic scalers. This sophisticated tool allows dental cleanings to be performed more efficiently and in less time. To achieve best results, both ultra sonic and manual scaling methods are combined for dental cleanings.
Mastrorocco and Cervone, DMD have provided personalized dental care to thousands of families. Our patients come from near and far to experience the warm, individualized care we provide. We pride ourselves in utilizing the most modern equipment and methods available.
How often do YOU floss your teeth?
The American Dental Association recommends flossing your teeth once a day. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Flossing also helps prevent gum disease and cavities.
