Routine cleanings from a dentist are a big part of good oral hygiene. A routine cleaning is a procedure in which your dentist uses a variety of tools to help deep clean your gums and teeth. First, your dentist will use an ultrasonic cleaner and a water sprayer to loosen and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Your dentist will then scrape additional plaque and tartar off your teeth by using a metal tool called a hand scraper. This process may cause slight discomfort, but generally does not. Finally, the dentist brushes your teeth with a rotary toothbrush and gritty toothpaste that polishes and cleans your teeth. To complete the cleaning your dentist may floss your teeth or give you a fluoride treatment to strengthen them. Routine cleaning costs can vary. With dental insurance your cost is typically fully covered so that you don’t pay any money out of pocket. If you don’t have dental insurance, or your insurance does not cover cleaning, you may need to pay between $50 and $135 for a routine exam and cleaning. There are many benefits to a routine teeth cleaning.
