Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do you have questions about our dental services? We compiled a list of answers to some of the frequently asked questions.

If your teeth and gums are in good condition, we recommend a preventative scale and clean every six months to keep your mouth healthy.

If you have a history of gum disease, we suggest getting a scale and cleaning every 3–4 months.

Professional teeth cleaning does not cause any pain. Our dental team will make sure that you feel comfortable during the entire procedure. We also have a numbing gel that we can use to make your teeth less sensitive.

An ultrasonic scaler will be used by the dentist to remove any plaque deposits stuck on or between your teeth. This is paired with a “therapeutic wash and flush,” which uses a fine mist of cold water to get rid of food particles that get stuck between the enamel surfaces of each tooth.

A device called a “scaler” is used to scrape plaque and tartar off your teeth during the scaling part of the process. Once all surfaces are smooth, your dentist will polish them using an ultrasonic cleaner to clean beneath the gumlines as well. For polishing, a slow-speed handpiece with a rubber cup that turns at the end is used. This ensures that every tooth is coated with prophylaxis paste.

Finally, a fluoride treatment is applied to protect your teeth from acid and bacteria. The dentist will apply the cool gel to the top of each tooth for 30-60 seconds. For 30 minutes after the fluoride has been applied, it is advised not to eat, drink, or rinse your mouth.

A typical dental check-up with a scale and cleaning takes around 30 minutes to an hour. It can be completed in a single dental appointment.

The cost of a general dental checkup varies depending on your dental needs and plaque buildup. A standard check-up with scaling and cleaning costs between $200 to $275 per visit. But if x-rays are necessary, the estimated price can be $300 to $400.
