Importance of Dental Cleanings
Many people view their biannual trips to the dentist as a burden or chore. In reality, dental cleanings are an investment in your oral and overall health. Dr. Batz & Weiner Family Dentistry performs dental cleanings to minimize the risk of oral health problems. You can do your part by brushing and flossing regularly at home, but that alone will not be enough to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as they should be. Our professional teeth cleanings in Laurel, MD can prevent problems before they start. Benefits of these visits include:
- Prevention of tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath
- Avoidance of costly dental procedures in the future
- Whiter teeth following stain removal
- A long-lasting healthy smile
What to Expect During a Dental Exam
Dental exams are how we evaluate the health of your teeth and gums and detect any causes for concern. Early diagnosis of oral health issues is critical for providing effective treatment. We aim to make every visit to our office comfortable and inviting. We use state-of-the-art equipment, and our doctors are first-rate. In addition to thoroughly cleaning your teeth, we will simultaneously check for cavities and gum disease. We may also take digital x-rays to assess your teeth, jaw, and bite. During your appointment, we will also discuss your oral hygiene habits and make suggestions about how you can improve your dental health at home.
Our Professional Cleanings Will Strengthen Your Teeth
Some people experience anxiety when they think about sitting in a dentist’s chair. But we want to make your experience a pleasant one. Our team will ensure you understand what to expect from our professional cleanings so that the noises and lights are not a source of stress. Your dental cleaning will be simple and painless. It will involve:
- A physical exam – Our dental hygienist will use handheld tools and mirrors to check for tooth decay, gingivitis, and other oral health concerns.
- Plaque and tartar removal – We will use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from your gum lines. This cannot be done with simple brushing, so it is an essential step during each cleaning.
- Toothpaste cleaning – Following tartar removal, we will perform a deep cleaning using an electric brush and toothpaste.
- Flossing – Our dentists can expertly floss your teeth to ensure no food particles are left between them.
- Rinsing – We will rinse your mouth completely to get rid of any debris. This rinse may utilize liquid fluoride.
- Fluoride treatment – To strengthen and protect your teeth against cavities, we will apply a fluoride treatment directly to them.
The Cost of Dental Cleanings and Exams
We do not want you to have to choose between protecting yourself and putting food on the table, so we keep teeth cleaning costs low. Dental cleanings and exams are necessary measures to enhance your oral and overall health. As a result, they are covered under most insurance plans. Furthermore, we accept all major insurance providers and will even help you process your claim. Call us today to learn more about pricing and how we can help.
