How often do I need to schedule dental cleanings and exams?
Even the healthiest smiles need to be cleaned and checked out by experienced dental professionals at least twice per year. If you have periodontal disease or are on the verge of developing periodontal disease, we may recommend that you schedule three or four visits per year. Frequent exams allow our team to diagnose and treat dental problems as they arise, while professional teeth cleanings help reduce the patients’ risk of developing issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
Will a dental cleaning whiten my teeth?
Dental cleanings involve polishing the patients’ teeth with a special gritty toothpaste that helps lift some surface-level stains while clearing away plaque. However, dental cleanings will not provide you with a noticeably brighter smile. If you are interested in whitening your teeth, Corvallis Dental Group offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments that can whiten your teeth quickly and effectively. If you want to whiten your teeth in-office, scheduling a treatment after a dental cleaning is the perfect time to do it!Learn More
Are cleanings and exams covered by dental insurance?
The majority of dental insurance plans offer full coverage for routine cleanings and exams, while others require patients to pay a very small copay. If you do not have dental insurance and need a way to divide the upfront cost of your routine visits, our office accepts monthly payment plans through CareCredit®. We never want patients to skip their routine appointments due to concerns about cost, so if you have any financial questions for us, we recommend visiting our financial page or contacting our front office directly.Financing Your Care
