Are dental cleanings really necessary?
Even if you do not have any dental problems such as a cavities or gum disease, you should still have a dental cleaning twice per year to prevent future problems. Flossing and brushing alone are not enough to remove plaque and tartar that buildu p and cause tooth decay and gum disease.

At Sachar Dental NYC we charged $195 for a teeth cleaning. Most PPO dental insurances cover this at 100%.
