"I have gone to Dr. Barry for years and would highly recommend him to others. He is always up-to-date on the latest techniques and is conservative in suggesting what work needs to be done, so I never feel that he is recommending expensive work that isn't necessary. He has a great personality and his office team is friendly, helpful, and professional. I go to Chrissy for my dental cleanings and would recommend her equally.My two sons went to Dr. Barry during high school and also liked Dr. Barry as their dentist, so he would get along well with any teenagers."- P.B. / Google / Dec 21, 2014

The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients have a professional cleaning twice a year. Children should have a visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, Dr. Barry can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A cleaning may help you avoid cavities because built-up plaque, which is the main reason for tooth decay, is removed. A dental cleaning will also remove stains and tartar from your teeth. If you want to freshen your breath, brighten your smile, improve your overall health, and avoid spending money on more expensive treatments, make an appointment for a dental cleaning at Ron Barry, D.M.D.
What To Expect
Your cleaning will begin by addressing the tartar and plaque buildup from your enamel, which is challenging to remove at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Professional equipment is used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To begin, a device with ultrasonic technology breaks up large areas of plaque and tartar with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld tools, such as a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth will be treated individually to get all the plaque and tartar. After your teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment will be completed following your cleaning.
Dr. Barry may recommend cleanings more often if you have other oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Throughout your appointment, Dr. Barry or an assistant on his team will help you design a routine for good oral health at home by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can focus on your concerns. These are advantageous for your teeth, wallet, and overall health so be sure to attend your dental appointments at Ron Barry, D.M.D.
