Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
To ensure that your mouth remains healthy, we recommend a preventive scale and clean every six months if you have healthy teeth and gums.
If you have had gum disease in the past, we recommend a scale and clean more often every 3–4 months.
The scaling phase of the operation involves scraping plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth with a small device called a scaler. The ultrasonic cleaner can also be utilized to clean below the gum line at this point. Your dentist will polish your teeth once all of the surfaces are smooth. A slow-speed handpiece with a soft rubber cup that spins at the end is used for polishing. A specific gritty toothpaste-like material called prophylaxis paste is scooped into the cup and swirled around on the teeth to make them glossy and smooth.
Finally, you may opt for a fluoride treatment, which essentially involves your dentist applying a cool fluoride-infused gel on the surface of your teeth to protect them against acid and bacteria. The fluoride gel is swished around in the mouth for at least 30-60 seconds. Following that, you are instructed to spit out as much as possible. Because the acids from bacteria in tartar and plaque have damaged the enamel surfaces, fluoride helps to strengthen them. After the fluoride has been applied, it is advised not to eat, drink, or rinse your mouth for 30 minutes.
Depending on your dental needs and plaque build-up, a routine dental check-up with a scale and clean treatment typically costs between $200 and $275 per visit. If an x-ray is required, the price could range from $300 to $400.
