How often are dental cleanings necessary?

The American Dental Association recommends a dental exam and cleaning at least every six months. If you have a history of gum disease or poor health, Dr. Desai and our team may recommend more frequent dental exams and cleanings. When you visit our office for your dental appointment, Dr. Desai will thoroughly clean and examine your mouth for tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues. Before you leave our office, we’ll inform you when your next dental exam and cleaning should occur.

Why are dental exams and cleanings important?

Routine dental exams and cleanings are a great way to prevent tooth decay and ensure your oral health is in good condition. Dental exams and cleanings can help keep the cost of dental treatments lower by catching and treating potential dental problems before they worsen. Not only do exams and cleanings keep your teeth healthy, but they can also contribute to good overall health!

How much does a dental exam and cleaning cost?

Routine dental exams and cleanings are essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. If you have dental insurance, the cost of an annual dental exam and cleaning may likely be covered. However, an exam and dental cleaning without insurance are also entirely possible for patients. At North Richland Hills Dentistry, we accept multiple payment methods and dental insurances and will work with you to help you navigate financing options.
