What to Expect
Dental cleanings usually start with an examination of the patient’s teeth. During the examination, we will look for any signs of damage, cavities, or decay. The patient’s teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools. Patient will have the opportunity to discuss the health status of their teeth with their dentist as well as discuss home dental health suggestions.
After receiving cleaning services at the dentist, patients should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by his office during their treatment. Patients should brush their teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss. If given special instructions or items to use by or office, such as specific mouthwash or toothpaste, patients should follow the directions given and schedule an appointment for follow-up.
Considered a form of preventative health care, most insurance companies cover some, if not all of the cost of a routine cleaning. Our office will check with the patient’s insurance policy before sending a bill to the patient of any remaining payment due. The overall cost for a cleaning varies among dental practices and is also determined based on the condition of the patient’s teeth. If covering the cost out of pocket, patients should expect to pay between $50 and $135.
