Dental cleanings are essential to maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Our professional hygienists help eliminate built-up plaque that is not removable using conventional brushing and flossing. Their gentle yet thorough dental cleanings can range from a routine twice yearly visit to full mouth scaling and root planing. Each patient’s needs are unique so our staff team will talk with you about your oral health history and treatment options to ensure you receive the best possible outcome to meet your oral health wishes.
While cleanings can prevent and even treat some oral health issues, regular exams can catch small issues before they become larger problems. Annual dental exams can identify small pockets or decay, cracks or other issues that need treatment. Fixing these problems when they first start not only protects your smile, it can save you money. It is much less expensive to remove a small cavity or repair a hairline crack than to need root canal therapy or a dental crown if these issues are allowed to progress.
The good news is that most dental insurance plans cover cleanings and checkups under preventive care. Even if you do not have insurance, we have options to make preventive care affordable. Ask our team about our Dental Savers Plan and our payment options. Getting the routine care you need can protect your smile and reduce the cost of caring for your dental health.
