Our team recommends booking a cleaning and check-up every six months. By doing this, our dentist and hygienist can keep an eye on your oral health and address any issues as soon as they arise. However, depending on what your mouth needs, you may have to visit more often than every six months.
Most dental insurance plans allow you to have 100% coverage for basic preventive care. This includes checkups, cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatment, and other basic services. For more in-depth periodontal (“deep”) cleaning, your coverage may be anywhere between 50%-80%, depending on the specifics of your plan. Our office will work with you to confirm your benefits and help you understand your insurance policy so you always understand your out-of-pocket costs.
You should expect to visit your dentist at least twice yearly, or every six months. In addition to receiving preventive care at our practice regularly, please don't hesitate to contact us if you are experiencing pain or have a dental emergency. Our team will be more than happy to assist you and made sure you’re seen as soon as possible.
A trained member of our hygiene team will perform your teeth cleaning, ensuring you are comfortable during the entire process. If you currently have gum disease, some tenderness or bleeding may occur. However, your hygienist will work very gently to prevent any pain or discomfort.
