Dental Cleaning Reviews
"I’ve been coming to preferred dental of Cromwell for many years and yesterday, hands down, was the best experience I’ve ever had. Danny was so polite and friendly and did an amazing job cleaning my teeth. I felt very comfortable with Dr Matt and Danny they make a great team. Also want to mention the woman up front who made the next appointment for my son. I didn’t get her name but she saved the day. I have an awful time getting my 27 year old to the dentist because he doesn’t like needles and she recommended something I didn’t know existed and that sealed the deal. Thank you preferred dental"- L.C. / Google / May 26, 2021
"I brought my two boys (7 and 10) for a regular 6 month cleaning and things were a bit different due to COVID. The COVID screening was texted to me for electronic completion prior to the appointments which was helpful. Myself and my boys all went into one room to see dental hygienist Daniel who was wonderful. My 7 year old just recently started brushing without help, so Daniel took out a toothbrush and mirror to show my son how he should be properly brushing on his own. It’s something so simple, but not easy for me to do at home. I really appreciated him answering all my boys’ “teeth” questions and going the extra mile to make sure they understand how to maintain healthy mouths. Thank you so much Daniel!"- D.L. / Google / Aug 25, 2021
"Super safe and super friendly. Lori did a great job cleaning my teeth and we had 80's music quiz time too. Dr. Mestel was extremely attentive and very personable. My smile is shining now!!!"- K.K. / Google / Sep 10, 2021
"Nancy, the hygienist, who did my cleaning was excellent. Friendly, efficient and gentle. She called in the Dr. for a question on something she saw. And as always he was upbeat."- J.H. / Google / Dec 04, 2021
"This was my first time visiting this dentistry office and I have to say I was impressed with my visit and have already recommended it to others. The staff was personable and professional from start to finish. The facility was clean and COVID mitigation procedures were followed closely. My dental hygienist, Lisa, cleaned my teeth with precision and care. This was the first time I left a dentist appointment without an aching mouth or bleeding gums from someone who was too rough or rushed with the cleaning. Additionally, it was easy to schedule my second cleaning in 6 months and the office staff assisted with sending paperwork into my insurance which was big help. Highly recommend."- E.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2021
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that all people receive professional dental cleanings at least twice a year. Babies should have their first dental exam before they turn one. After this, our team will help you determine when your child is ready for their next dental appointment. Prophylaxis cleanings are an excellent treatment for cavity prevention. Our dental hygienists use advanced tools to scale and polish the teeth, removing plaque and tartar deposits. A dental cleaning can also address tartar and stains on the enamel. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, boost your health, and save money in the long run, schedule a cleaning for yourself and every member of your family at Preferred Dental of Cromwell.
What To Expect
A professional cleaning begins with removing the plaque and tartar that have collected on your teeth, which can be difficult to treat on your own, no matter how often you brush and floss. Special instruments are used to carefully scale buildup without harming the tooth. First, an ultrasonic device addresses bigger chunks of tartar and plaque with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, handheld instruments (like a curette or scaler) will be used to remove smaller pieces. Each tooth needs to be individually scaled to ensure that all of the tartar and plaque is expelled. Once the teeth have been cleaned, the enamel will be polished to remove stains and strengthen the teeth. At this point, our dentists may apply a fluoride treatment for additional protection against tooth decay.
Our team may advise you to receive cleanings more frequently if you are diagnosed with gum disease or another condition that requires regular treatment. During your cleaning, we can help you develop a good home oral care routine by demonstrating techniques or recommending products that will address your specific concerns. Our instructions and advice can help you take your oral care to the next level if you are struggling with certain aspects of oral hygiene or have certain areas of your mouth that require special attention. To ensure that your oral health is kept in check, you should continue to schedule and attend your twice-yearly professional cleanings at our Cromwell, CT office.
A professional dental cleaning is considered a preventive treatment so it is usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will contact your provider to determine your specific coverage and then calculate any out-of-pocket costs. Even if you do not have dental insurance, we accept a range of payment methods, including low-interest medical financing. Our Cromwell, CT team works closely with patients to ensure that they receive the dental care they need at a price they can afford so don't hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions.
