While you probably brush and floss your teeth very well and very often at home, it’s difficult for patients to clean their teeth thoroughly enough so that they remove all of the plaque from their teeth. This is why having an experienced dental hygienist scrape, brush, and polish your teeth regularly is so important for reducing your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Dental exams are also important for diagnosing and treating any dental issues that may have developed since your last dental cleaning and exam.
Routine dental appointments typically take between thirty minutes and one hour. Since we try to offer same-day treatment post-diagnosis whenever possible, your visit may be on the longer side if we diagnose an issue and offer to treat it during the same visit. Additional services like fluoride treatments can also extend the length of a dental appointment. Routine visits are your time to ask our team questions or bring up any concerns that you may have, so feel free to ask our team questions during your appointments.
Many dental insurance plans offer full coverage for routine teeth cleanings and exams, so if you have insurance, your regular dental visits should be covered. If you are a member of our in-house dental membership plan, your routine care is covered as well. Our office also provides a variety of other ways that patients can pay for their care, like using FSAs, HSAs, CareCredit®, or Greensky payment plans.
