Dental Exam And Teeth Cleaning For Healthy Gums & Teeth

When it comes to your teeth, you can never be too careful. That's why dental health is such an important part of life! It is important to have your teeth cleaned out by the dentist from time to time.

Professional cleanings and assessments enable cosmetic dental professionals to remain in control of your oral health and can provide guidance on steps to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Regular preventive dental visits allow problems to be identified at an earlier stage, with a greater probability of painless treatment. Early detection results in reduced inconveniences since less treatment will be needed, also leading to a lower cost. 

Dr. Deshpande will reinforce the proper frequency for your cleaning appointments, in order to fit your oral status and provide the best maintenance for your teeth and gums.

What To Expect At The Appointment?

During a standard appointment, a dental hygienist will use scaling instruments to remove the buildup of plaque and calculus from the teeth and soft tissue. Additionally, the hygienist and cosmetic dentist will:

  • Screen for cancer and other diseases

  • Evaluate the supporting bone structure

  • Check for cavities

  • Assess the upkeep of existing cosmetic dental restorations

  • Take X-rays

  • Apply fluoride

  • Evaluate aesthetic options

Dr. Sonal Deshpande highly recommends visiting the dental office after every 6 months for a routine dental checkup.

Are Dental Exams And Teeth Cleaning Covered Under Insurance?

As dental assessments and teeth cleaning procedures come under preventive care, most insurance companies cover at least two visits per year for the cleaning procedure.
