Dental Cleaning

Is a dental cleaning and checkup covered by insurance?

Yes, dental cleanings and checkups are often covered by dental insurance. However, the coverage amount and frequency may vary depending on your specific plan. It's best to check with your dental insurance provider to understand your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs you may incur. If you do not have dental insurance, be sure to ask about payment options when scheduling your appointment.

What is the difference between a dental cleaning and a dental checkup?

A dental cleaning is a preventive procedure that your hygienist performs to remove plaque and tartar buildup. A dental checkup is a routine exam performed by your dentist. The exam is used to evaluate your overall oral health and detect dental problems early on.

How long does a dental cleaning take?

Dental cleanings typically take between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of buildup on your teeth and other factors. Your hygienist will be able to give you a more accurate estimate based on your individual needs.

Does dental cleaning hurt?

Dental cleanings are typically painless, but you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during the cleaning process, especially if you have sensitive teeth or gums. If you experience any discomfort during your cleaning, let your dental professional know so they can adjust the cleaning technique.

How often should I see the dentist?

It is recommended to get a dental cleaning and checkup every six months or as recommended by your dentist. However, if you have a history of gum disease or other dental problems, you may need to schedule visits more frequently.

Why is it important to get a regular dental cleaning?

A dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, is a professional dental procedure that removes plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth. It is important because it helps prevent dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Regular dental cleanings also help keep your teeth and gums healthy and promote overall oral health.
