She cares about my dental health and I look forward to my cleanings with her."- G.G. / Google / Mar 19, 2021
"I have never experienced a dentist like KFA, the whole team is by far the best. I love their text messaging system for follow-up, or when you need an appointment, with immediate response during business hours. I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone on the team. Every cleaning I have had these past few years, has always been nothing but great. Each of the hygienists have always been very accommodating to my phobia of going to the dentist, they have made each experience exceptional. Recently, I had my 3rd root canal preformed and Dr. Lewis. This has been by far the best “pain free” root canal I’ve had done. I wish I knew about KFA for my two previous root canals. Highly recommended."- G.S. / Google / Mar 31, 2022

Highly recommend for everything from cleanings to Invisalign!!!!"- L.H. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
Will I Benefit from A Dental Cleaning?
The ADA (American Dental Association) suggests professional dental cleanings twice per year. Babies should get their first dental exam before they turn one, and following that, one of our excellent doctors can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A teeth cleaning may help you avoid cavities at any age due to plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay, is removed. It will also remove tartar and stains on your teeth, giving a glowing appearance to your clean mouth. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, and improve your overall oral health, make an appointment for your whole family at KFA Dental Excellence.
How Will You Clean My Teeth?
Your teeth cleaning will start by addressing the tartar and plaque that have built up on your enamel, which is usually hard to remove with just daily brushing and flossing. Advanced tools are used to carefully scale buildup without harming your teeth. To start, an ultrasonic device addresses large areas of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Then, handheld instruments, like a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth needs to be treated individually to get all the buildup. After the teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be polished to remove stains from your teeth. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment will be done following the cleaning. Once complete, you will have a fresh, clean mouth.
What Comes After My Teeth Cleaning?
One of our skilled dentists may suggest cleanings more frequently if you have any oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Otherwise, your next teeth cleaning will be scheduled for approximately six months later. During your appointment, your dentist or an assistant can help you design a good at-home oral care routine by demonstrating techniques and recommending products that will focus on your specific concerns. Both regular dental visits and a good home routine can be very beneficial for your teeth, wallet, and overall mouth health so be sure to attend your regular dental appointments at KFA Dental Excellence.
Help keep your mouth, gums, and teeth healthy with dental cleanings twice a year at KFA Dental Excellence. Drs. Kahn, Ferrari, and Aldieri or a member of their team can help both adults and children boost their oral and overall health with teeth cleanings.
