Why are routine cleanings and exams important?
Patients will sometimes believe that brushing and flossing at home is enough to keep their smiles healthy and squeaky clean. While a thorough at-home oral care routine is crucial for maintaining positive oral health, routine cleanings and exams are also a very important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Professional teeth cleanings remove plaque and tartar from areas that are difficult for patients to clean thoroughly themselves, while dental exams provide our team with an opportunity to diagnose any issues that may have arisen since your last visit.
How long do routine cleanings and exams take?
A routine dental appointment can take anywhere from thirty minutes to one hour, depending on a few different factors. If it’s your first visit with our team, we will want to ensure that we have a solid understanding of your dental background and oral health needs, so your appointment may end up being longer than your following visits. If we detect any dental issues during your visit, we may offer same-day treatment post-diagnosis to get a head start on your treatment plan. Your appointments are time that is set aside just for you, so feel free to bring up any questions or concerns you may have!
Are routine exams and cleanings covered by dental insurance?
Most insurance plans cover the cost of routine dental care, like dental exams and professional cleanings, and we always advise patients to take advantage of their benefits and schedule routine dental visits with our office at least twice per year. Uninsured or underinsured? There are a variety of other financing options you can take advantage of. Cactus Point Dental offers an in-house membership plan and in-house financing, and we accept CareCredit™ and SunBit® payment plans as well. For more information, please contact our office directly.
