Experience Comfortable Checkups From Dental Professionals

We know there are many demands on a person’s time that can easily cause you to put off these important dental visits. Please don’t put off the care you deserve!

Around here, we offer the best and most comfortable treatment available. If you’ve ever had an uncomfortable dental visit, you’ll appreciate the little things we do to make you feel at ease while maximizing your time. From offering dental sedation to creating same-day crowns, your comfort and convenience as a patient are always top of mind for us as your partner for oral health care.

While you are here for routine visits, we’ll take many steps to ensure your mouth is healthy and clean:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams — You’ll receive a very focused cleaning. Your friendly dental hygienist will clean and polish each of your teeth to remove lingering plaque, tartar, and dangerous bacteria. They will make sure to cover hard-to-get-to areas you might miss when brushing and flossing on your own. You’ll leave here with shinier teeth and a fresher mouth, every time!
  • Oral Cancer Screenings — We can screen your mouth for oral cancer as a preventive step. Early detection of this disease increases the odds of successful treatment. We’ll also check for cavities and signs of gum disease.
  • Gum Disease Treatment — If we see signs of gum infection, we will get your gums back on a healthy track fast so that you never have to experience the tooth loss that can occur as a result of undiagnosed gum disease.
  • Preventive Treatments — Depending on the results of your exam, we may recommend fluoride treatments or dental sealants to help prevent future problems.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How much should a dental cleaning and exam cost?

The cost varies widely, depending on the local market rate and the services (like X-rays) that may be included. Even basic dental insurance plans typically cover two exams and cleanings a year, plus a set of X-rays. With or without insurance, regular exams and cleanings are the best way for you to keep your overall dental costs low. Without them, you’ll end up paying more in the long run for restorative procedures to repair dental damage.

How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?

Most dental cleanings and exams can be completed in under an hour. The time can vary, of course, depending on the condition of your teeth. If your smile has multiple issues that need to be addressed, or if it’s just been a long time since your last dental visit, it may take a bit longer to clean your teeth. We use special equipment like ultrasonic scalers to keep your visits as quick and efficient as possible.

How much is a dental cleaning and exam without insurance?

Again, the cost varies. At Drew Family Dentistry, we never want a lack of insurance to keep you from getting the routine smile care that keeps your teeth and gums healthy. With our VIP membership for uninsured patients, members pay a low monthly fee that covers preventive care including exams and cleanings. In addition, you’ll receive a 15 percent discount for many other services. We offer memberships for adults, children, and adults with gum disease.
