Why regular cleaning & exams are integral to your dental health

A Healthier Mouth

Each time we eat, drink, or even breathe, our teeth and gums are exposed to countless particles and bacteria. These seemingly innocent interactions can accumulate into harmful plaque and tartar. Left unchecked, this can set the stage for cavities, gum disease, and other dental ailments. Regular dental cleanings act as your first line of defense, removing these deposits and ensuring your mouth remains a haven of health. At Hillside Dental Care, we ensure every speck is addressed, allowing you to smile confidently and healthily.

Early Detection

The age-old adage "A stitch in time saves nine" rings especially true for dental care. Dental issues can be stealthy, silently developing without any apparent symptoms. Regular exams can catch these problems in their infancy. Whether it's a tiny cavity, the early onset of gum disease, or any other concern, early detection and intervention can save you from future pain and expensive corrective procedures. With our team's keen eye and our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, you're not just getting a check-up; you're getting peace of mind.

Beyond just cleaning and checking, our dental exams are an opportunity to educate. We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge. Understand the why and how behind each recommendation, whether it's a specific brushing technique, a particular type of floss, or guidance on dietary habits. When you leave Hillside Dental Care after an exam, you're equipped with the insights to maintain optimal oral health, until your next visit.

Providing clarity on common queries!

  • Typically, it's recommended to have a dental check-up every six months. However, based on individual oral health conditions, more frequent visits might be advised.

  • A typical dental cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar from your teeth, which helps prevent cavities and gum disease. The process usually includes brushing, flossing, and sometimes an application of fluoride. A dental exam typically includes checking for cavities, examining your gum health, and sometimes taking X-rays to detect any hidden problems.

  • To prepare for a dental cleaning and exam, it's best to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Avoid eating a large meal right before your appointment and, if you have a history of dental anxiety, inform your dentist beforehand so they can make accommodations to ensure your comfort.

  • Dental cleanings are generally not painful. Some patients may experience mild discomfort, especially if there is significant tartar buildup or sensitive gums. Your dentist can use various techniques to minimize discomfort.

Steve C.

Two Decades, Unwavering Trust

My wife and I have been with Hillside Dental for nearly 20 years. From dental cleaning to root canals and almost all dental needs. Dr. Rosenberg and his staff are highly skilled, knowledgeable and very focused on their patients. We are moving to California soon but I would be tempted to come back for our dental needs.
Trish D.

Exceptional Emergency Care

I had a really bad tooth emergency over this past weekend. Since it was a Sunday, the office was closed. I texted the Dr.'s emergency line, and he came into the office with an assistant ready to go and relieve my pain. I can't tell you enough what a relief it was to get this taken care of. I'll always recommend Dr. Rosenberg and his staff.
Kyra R.

Exceptional Experience

I have nothing but the best to say about Hillside Dental Care. The dentist was very kind and polite. I had not been to a dentist in over 15 years and was very nervous, but the dentist and staff made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend going to this office; they are amazing!
Ann R.

Comfortable Dental Work

I had 3 teeth removed recently, and I was very nervous as I've never had adult teeth pulled before. The entire staff is super friendly and nice and eased my fears about being at the dentist for the first time in 15 years. Dr. Rosenberg is very knowledgeable with a gentle touch and great bedside manner. I will recommend this office to anyone needing dental work!

Gentle and Caring Treatment

This is the best dental experience I have had in my LIFE. I had a lot of dental work done as a little boy, including a headgear, extractions, fillings, and braces. As a result, I am traumatized. However, the staff was extremely gentle and aware of my dental office anxiety. THANK YOU to the entire staff for taking such good care of me! I highly recommend!
Megan J.
