Regular dental exams and teeth cleanings are imperative to maintaining a healthy mouth. Daily brushing and flossing are not always enough to remove tartar and plaque buildup. And even with proper care, you may still develop cavities or other issues. Teeth cleaning can help keep teeth whiter, protect teeth and gums, and identify problems early on. Delaying preventive or restorative care can lead to more serious problems. Finding a dental provider that makes you feel safe, comfortable, and knowledgeable about your oral health is important so you can make informed decisions about your care. Know exactly what issues are present and effective ways to not only address these concerns, but also achieve the stunning smile you have always wanted.

Benefits of Teeth Cleaning

Because oral health is directly related to one’s overall wellbeing, visiting Clagett Dental Solutions in Elizabethtown for a biannual dental exam and teeth cleaning is truly an investment in more than just your oral health—it’s an investment in your overall health.

The benefits of keeping your regular dental exams are numerous. During your dental exam and teeth cleaning, our doctors will thoroughly examine your mouth to look for signs of problems such as gum disease, cavities, and oral cancer.

Some additional benefits of scheduling regular dental exams and teeth cleanings with our doctors at Clagett Dental Solutions are:

  • Catching oral problems before they get out of hand
  • Preventing or reducing cavities
  • Preserving the teeth, gums, and jawbone
  • Correcting bite issues that interfere with eating
  • Learning the proper techniques for brushing and flossing.
  • Removing stains from wine, tea, coffee, or tobacco that can build up over time, leading to a whiter smile
  • Eliminating bad breath, which can emerge over time due to an accumulation of plaque on the teeth

To protect your oral health, be sure to keep regular teeth cleanings with one of our doctors at Clagett Dental Solutions.

Is Teeth Cleaning Right for You?

The quick answer to this question is a resounding “YES!” A dental exam and teeth cleaning are essential for everyone in order to maintain good oral hygiene. Even if you no longer have your natural teeth, you should still visit our doctors at Clagett Dental Solutions for regular dental exams. This way, they will be able to monitor your gum health and jawbone strength.

While everyone in Elizabethtown should have teeth cleanings twice a year, it is true that some patients are more susceptible to dental problems and, therefore, may require more frequent check-ups with our doctors. These patients include those who:

Even if you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a few years, it’s not too late to make an appointment. Our doctors will never shame or scold a patient for not making it in sooner; rather, they’ll provide a comforting and accepting environment where everyone can feel like they’re getting the help they need.

Cost of Teeth Cleaning

If you have dental insurance, be sure to call our office to discuss your coverage with a member of our team. We accept most dental insurance plans, which typically cover regular dental exams and teeth cleaning twice a year, so chances are you won’t experience any out-of-pocket expense.

However, to be sure, our team will file your claim electronically with your insurance provider on the day of your visit and will make every attempt to help you obtain your maximum reimbursement from your benefits plan.

It’s important to our doctors that you are comfortable and informed. If, for some reason, your insurance does not cover your teeth cleaning, or you do not have dental insurance, your cost will be dependent on the services you have performed during your appointment. In order to find out what you should expect to pay, please call our Elizabethtown office to discuss your dental exam and teeth cleaning with our Financial Coordinator.

Recovery After Teeth Cleaning

A dental exam and teeth cleaning are both very mild procedures, and you shouldn’t feel any ill side effects afterward. In fact, most patients may find that their teeth feel smooth and refreshed after receiving a cleaning. Sometimes, the gums may be tender after the exam, but this should resolve within a few minutes. Patients can immediately eat, drink, exercise, or go back to their normal routine without any restrictions.
