    What Does A Cleaning Involve?

    Gum diseases and decaying teeth are two of the most common dental problems that can be easily avoided. Don't take out word for it; even the scientists at CDC happen to think so.

    If you visit your dentist just two times a year for a regular cleaning and dental checkup, you can have benefits that would last you a lifetime.

    How much will it cost?

    Even the most comprehensive dental exams are quite affordable whether you have dental insurance or not. Besides, the cost of a routine dental exam is far less than the treatment cost should you develop any dental issue because of neglecting it. The average price of a cleaning and an extensive dental exam will set you back about $198 in out-of-pocket expenses. On the other hand, the treatments for gum disease, including scaling and root planning, can cost upwards of $1,000. The cost of a single root canal surgery can be as high as $700-$900, and if you need a tooth replacement, the price is as high as $3,000.

    Dental Cleaning and Dental Exam

    Brushing and flossing regularly does not guarantee that you won't have any dental issues. Some dental problems can go unnoticed, such as tartar buildup and dental decay. If you follow through with your biannual dental appointment, the dentists at Fort Lauderdale can eliminate the tartar and catch any serious issues early. Catching any potential dental problem early gives you the best chance to save the tooth and save money on treatment.

    There is more to a biannual dental exam than just cleaning.

    • Oral health is linked to your overall health. If you think that what happens in your mouth stays there, you are wrong. The bacteria present in the plaque of your teeth have been shown to have an implication in heart disease, among other health conditions. A regular dental exam can not only protect your oral health, but it is good for your overall health as well. Your dentists can check for early signs of oral cancer during such exams as well.
    • You can improve your dental care at home after an exam. Your daily oral hygiene is vital for preventing any dental issues and complications. A consultation with your dental team during a routine visit will help you improve your oral care by picking better dental care products and implementing a better technique.
    • Regular dental checkups are not very expensive.

    If you are insured, most plans offer a routine biannual dental exam at no additional out-of-pocket cost. Even if there is a copay, it is negligible. Compare this cost with getting a dental treatment for dental decay, root canal, or a tooth implant.

    What can you expect during such exams?

    First and foremost, your dentist will examine your gums and teeth with the help of a camera. Next, your dentist might use X-rays to get a detailed picture of your teeth, jawbone, and teeth roots and look for signs of infection, cracks, or other issues.

    The dentist might also conduct an oral cancer screening by examining your mouth and gums with a special tool. The tartar and plaque cleaning is done by a dental hygienist, after which he/she will use a gritty paste and a rotating device on your teeth to give them a nice polish. At the end of the session, you hygienist and your dentist can give you tips to improve your dental care including brushing and flossing technique.
