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.
Dental Cleanings Reviews
"Dr. Bosher is -- quite simply -- the best of the best!"- K.B. / Facebook / Jan 14, 2015
"I have been a patient of Dr. Ron Bosher for many, many years. Dr B and his staff have not only always made me feel so welcome, like part of the family, but their expertise and knowledge of the most current dental care is outstanding! So I always know that I am receiving the best of care. I have had many procedures done and they are always very "gentle" , thorough, and explain the process every step of the way, making me feel very comfortable. As a regular patient, Dr. B's staff always lets me know in plenty of time when I'm due for cleaning and dental work and schedules my appointments for me so that I stay current. I really appreciate that so much. The office staff is efficient, always ready to help, & they greet you by name. I would (and have) recommend Dr. Ron Bosher and his wonderful staff to anyone who is looking for a caring and knowledgeable dentist, who stays current and beyond on the latest technology in the dental industry. Its such a great feeling to know you're in such good hands."- C.L. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2015
"If you are looking for more than just your average cleaning like me, then give Dr. Bosher a call. He is extremely knowledgeable as is his staff. If you have TMJ or a specific treatment needed, call them first as you won't want to go any where else. It took me three tries to find a great dentist when I moved to Texas and I finally found a dentist and staff that is caring and able to address my needs. You should give them a try too."- Google User / Google / Jun 06, 2012
"Excellent appointment again. didn't have to wait long and my teeth cleaning was performed quickly and efficiently."- O. / Citysearch / Jul 17, 2013
"Dr. Bosher and his staff are one of a kind. I went to Bosher for cosmetic dentistry after my prior dentist did a botch job on my teeth. Dr. Bosher not only fixed my teeth, but made me feel confident and happy with my smile again. Bosher and his staff always make a special effort to make their patients happy and comfortable. The office equipment and technology are top of the line. I certainly don't mind watching the large flat screen TV on the wall in front of me while getting a teeth cleaning :). I recommend Dr. Bosher 100%."- E.P. / Yelp / Aug 10, 2015
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.

Dental Cleanings FAQs
What Causes Decay?
Tooth decay occurs when plaque and sticky sugar produce acid that destroys the tooth’s enamel. Patients can prevent tooth decay with routine brushing and flossing, and avoiding eating foods and drinks high in sugar.
Dentists recommend patients have their teeth professionally cleaned once every six months. Excess tartar and plaque buildup can lead to health issues, such as gum disease, tooth decay and sensitivity. In addition, an annual exam will include X-rays to ensure there is not any hidden problems that are not detectable by the naked eye, such as early decay, small chips, cracks, etc.
Yes, some patients may use fluoride treatments during a teeth cleaning. If used in small amounts, fluoride prevents tooth decay, and strengthens weak areas on the teeth.
