Dental Cleanings Treatment
A dental cleaning is usually done after a dental exam, which checks for any signs of decay, cavities, or other dental problems. During the dental cleaning, the hygienist removes any tartar or plaque buildup from the teeth with professional instruments. Then, the teeth are cleaned and polished the teeth to remove stains and brighten the enamel. A dental cleaning is usually performed without anesthesia, but patients with concerns like a strong gag reflex or anxieties, may talk to their dentist about adding a form of sedation.
Dental Cleanings PRICING
Our dental office accepts most dental insurance plans, as well as offers numerous payment options and financing. Pricing per visit will vary depending upon the patient's needs. Prior to the procedure, the cost will be confirmed, discussed, and approved by the patient before treatment is provided.
Most patients should schedule a dental cleaning twice a year or about every 6 months. However, patients with excessive tartar and plaque buildup should talk to their dentist about more frequent cleanings.
Some patients who are at higher risk for tooth decay may receive fluoride treatments as part of their dental cleaning. Fluoride treatments are a quick preventative measure that can help patients, especially young children, avoid future cavities.
Special Care After Cleanings?
After a dental cleaning, dentists recommended that patients abstain from eating or drinking for up to an hour. Following this, there are no special instructions, but patients should follow a healthy dental regimen of daily brushing and flossing combined with regular dental exams and cleanings at the dentist.
