Regular professional dental cleanings and examinations are essential to maintaining good dental health. Professional cleanings, at least once every six months, help remove plaque and tarter which can lead to infection, decay, and tooth loss if not removed regularly. Using the latest technology in the industry, Plano, TX cosmetic dentists, Dr. Ron Bosher and Dr. Tim Nguyen, ensure their patients receive the best oral care possible by finding areas of decay before they are visible to the naked eye. Routine dental cleanings prevent small cavities from developing into larger problems that would need extensive dental work to repair. Dr. Bosher and Dr. Nguyen are proud to have the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detector in-house. Our dental practice uses only digital X-rays to uncover the earliest phases of decay.

What to Expect
Routine dental cleanings begin with a full examination of the patient’s teeth to check for cavities, tooth decay or damage. During the dental cleaning, our experienced dental hygienist removes plaque and tartar build-up from the patient’s teeth, and will then use a power toothbrush to clean and polish the patient’s teeth. Patients are encouraged to have a professional teeth cleaning once every six months.
The price of a routine dental cleaning varies, depending on the health condition of the patient’s teeth. Most insurance companies cover the entire cost of a cleaning, which means patients won’t be required to pay for anything out of their own pocket. If patients do not have dental insurance, they can expect to pay between $100 and $200.
