The cost of the dental exam is $79. The cost of a regular cleaning is an additional fee of $79. In the case of gum disease, a deep cleaning is recommended instead of a regular cleaning. A regular cleaning will not be done If diagnosed with gum disease.
Deep cleaning starts at $49 for 2-3 teeth or $79 a quadrant (4-8 teeth). A deep cleaning may be required for one or more teeth to address localized or generalized gum disease.
A comprehensive dental exam will determine what type of cleaning (regular , deep or a combination) is necessary. Therefore, the price for the cleaning will vary based on individual needs.
During a dental exam, the dentist will check for cavities and gum disease. The exam includes evaluating your risk of developing other oral problems and checking your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. A dental exam will also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.
Your dentist or hygienist will likely discuss your diet and oral hygiene habits and might demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. Other topics might include lifestyle factors that can affect oral health and possible cosmetic improvements to your teeth.
