Take Care of Your Teeth and Gums

Routine teeth cleaning and checkups are essential steps to preserving your oral health, encompassing your teeth, gums, and the rest of your mouth. Professional cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that can cause decay, gum disease, and chronic bad breath. Our skilled hygienists can reach areas that are difficult to clean with routine brushing and flossing at home. During a thorough cleaning and exam, both your hygienist and dentist can monitor your oral health, identifying and addressing potential issues before they become painful and costly.

Regular teeth cleanings also offer the added benefit of making your teeth look naturally whiter and brighter, without the need for bleaching treatments.

What To Expect At A Teeth Cleaning Appointment?

Gum Health

Gum health is super important and often under-appreciated. Your gums support your teeth and frame your smile. During your visit, we take a close look at your tongue, gums, teeth, and all other areas of your mouth with a special focus on the gum line to ensure your entire mouth is as healthy as can be, without any sign of inflammation or impending gum disease. And don’t worry, we promise not to be too hard on you about your flossing habits!

Plaque & Tartar Removal

Plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth. If it’s not routinely cleaned away with thorough brushing, flossing, and a professional touch, it can harden into tartar deposits. Tartar is usually darker in color and often found in tricky-to-clean places like the gumline. Our skilled hygienists have the tools and expertise to carefully scale away stuck-on plaque and tartar from those hard-to-reach places. Once all that build-up is gone, we’ll polish your teeth to remove stains and leave them gleaming.

Dentist Exam

After your teeth are cleaned, it’s the perfect time for a dentist to examine them. Your dentist will review your chart and x-rays, focusing on any problem areas or troubling patterns. They might recommend further treatment or give you tips and advice on how to slow or reverse tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We’re always happy to answer any questions you have and to hear about any discomfort, sensitivity, or dental pain you’ve experienced.

Cost of Teeth Cleaning in Thornton

Routine checkups and cleanings are an excellent way to prevent and avoid dental problems, so much so that most insurance companies nearly completely cover them on a routine basis—usually every 6 months. If you are without dental insurance, you can expect to pay anywhere from $120 to $300 and up, especially if it’s your first visit or first cleaning in a long time.

    When determining the actual cost of your treatment, we consider several important factors:

  • Your Current Oral Health: The overall state of your oral health can impact the cost.
  • New X-rays: Whether or not new x-rays are required for a thorough assessment.
  • Time Required: The amount of time the dental team needs to meet your specific needs.
  • Equipment and Supplies: The necessary equipment and supplies to provide comprehensive care.

These routine appointments are crucial to us, as we see them as the most effective way to prevent more invasive treatments, avoid serious dental pain, and keep you as happy and healthy as possible.
