What happens during a dental cleaning and exam?

Our dentist and dental hygienist will thoroughly clean and professionally examine your mouth during a dental cleaning and exam. This professional look allows for the detection of damage or decay and any sign of periodontal disease. After the dental exam, a cleaning that removes plaque and tartar stuck to the enamel will get done. Once the plaque and tartar get removed, your teeth will get polished and flossed and you’ll be done with the appointment!

How long does a teeth cleaning take?

The dental cleaning and exam can take as little as thirty minutes to an hour to complete. However, this time may vary based on if the dentist would like to take any necessary X-rays or if it has been a while since your last visit. During this time, not only will your teeth get cleaned and examined, but you’ll also be able to express any concerns you may have about your oral health and discuss future treatment necessary.

How much does a dental cleaning cost?

If you have dental insurance, the dental cleaning and exam cost is often covered when scheduled every six months. However, if you don’t have dental insurance, the price is often minimal, and dental cleaning and exam specials can make caring for your oral health affordable. At Parkside Family Dental, we understand that affordable dental care is essential. Our team is happy to help patients find a financial option that best suits them.
