Regular cleanings are the best way to maintain good oral health and wellness. Be sure to have your teeth cleaned professionally by our team every six months to keep your teeth cavity-free and your gums healthy.
Yes, for the majority of patients, checkups and cleanings are covered in part or full by insurance. Most major dental insurance plans cover two preventive visits a year. Deep cleanings are often covered in part by insurance, although the total rate of coverage will depend on your insurance provider.
While every patient is different with unique dental care needs, you can expect to visit at least twice yearly, or every six months. This allows Dr. Clarkman and the team the opportunity to monitor changes in your oral health and make timely treatment recommendations.
Generally, no, cleanings are very comfortable for most patients. Our dental hygienists are very skilled and take their time to make sure you never feel any pain or discomfort. Patients with tender, swollen, or bleeding gums may experience some discomfort during their cleaning due to the condition of their gums, but we try to make sure all our patients are as comfortable as possible at all times.
