Doctor Sukhpreet Heer on a patient's first dental cleaning
When patients come in for their first dental cleaning, they're greeted either by myself, Dr. Martins, or our hygienist, Torrie. We get them to the room, make sure that they're comfortable, and we actually offer Bluetooth headphones with Netflix and Pandora to help the patient feel more comfortable during their cleaning experience. It's just an altogether more comfortable experience for the patient.
One of the ways we ensure that the patients have a very good experience during their cleanings is by making sure that there's consistency. Every single person that cleans the teeth in our office does it in the exact same sequence. We start out with the ultrasonic or the Cavitron, make sure that everything is nice and clean, follow up with hand instruments, and then polish your teeth at the end. By the end of the experience, it's consistent no matter who you see in the office, leading to a much more predictable experience for the patients, so there are no surprises anywhere.
Nothing beats a professional cleaning. Even if you vacuum your carpets regularly, you’ll want to get them cleaned periodically by a professional to keep them in top shape. The same is true of your teeth. No matter how diligently you brush and floss, you’ll miss bacteria that can collect in the tiniest nooks and crannies of your mouth. Beverly dental cleanings will:
- Help prevent cavities by removing plaque from teeth
- Remove surface stains from your teeth so your smile shines more brightly
- Reduce the incidence of gum disease by cleaning plaque from hard-to-reach areas like the gumline
- Lower your risk of conditions that research has linked to poor oral hygiene, such as heart disease and stroke
- Help you avoid the kind of dental damage that can result in costly and time-intensive procedures
We are here to welcome you
It's really important to get regular dental care because we clean your teeth in a way that you can't clean yourselves at home, just by brushing and flossing. We get deeper into the gums and around the teeth and it will protect them from leading to larger issues down the line, making sure their teeth look okay, no cavities, everything is getting cleaned. Many things can go unnoticed if you leave it longer. So getting patients in on a regular basis just to keep checking up, getting regular x-rays, we can catch it sooner so it doesn't lead to a bigger problem.
So specifically at Martins Dental Partners, we provide a very comfortable experience along the lines of our chairside manner and just the entertainment features that we offer. But really doesn't matter how long it has been since you last went to the dentist, it is okay and we're here to welcome you.
Our dentists suggest getting a cleaning and exam every six months. To schedule one, call 978-288-1946 today. We won’t keep you waiting long with convenient appointment opportunities. And good news – most insurance benefits cover regular cleanings!
We’ll Help You Build Good Oral Hygiene Habits
Cleanings are a great opportunity for your dentists and hygienists to educate you about the connection between your oral health and your overall health. We’ll talk to you about oral hygiene techniques to use at home. We’re also happy to discuss the general, restorative, and cosmetic dental options available to you, so we can work together to create a personalized lifetime treatment plan. You’re a partner, not just a patient, at our dentist office. As part of your plan, we may recommend preventive dental services like:
- Fluoride treatments, to strengthen tooth enamel and help prevent cavities
- Dental sealants, to provide an added layer of anticavity protection in areas like the back teeth
- Deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing, to treat gum disease in its earlier stages
