What is dental cleaning and how much does it cost?

A professional oral cleaning every six months can greatly improve your mouth’s health. You might say that you don’t need to do so twice a year as you frequently brush and floss. What you may not know is that despite brushing and flossing, bacteria and plaque still build up in areas that aren’t reachable by your toothbrush. Dental cleaning price varies, depending on whether the dental cleaning is for an adult or a child. During a procedure, the dental hygienist in the Dental Office uses a probe and a number of other tools to clean your teeth. There are quite a few things included in a dental cleaning procedure. Your dentist may also let you in on some tips for better brushing, and may also add some preventive care. If necessary, some diagnostics may also be run in order to determine and detect other possible diseases.

These are some of the things that may happen during a procedure:

  • Plaque and Tartar removal
  • Removal of stains due to highly pigmented food
  • Possible application of sealants for children
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Teeth polishing
  • Adjustment of dental apparatus such as dentures and dental bridges (if applicable)

The Dental Cleaning Price, including these services, start at an average of $150 CAD. This is the basic rate for a regular dental cleaning procedure. It is relatively affordable, but also expect for the price to increase if you want to add more services for aesthetic purposes such as veneers, etc.During a dental cleaning, the dental hygienist removes the dirt in the teeth and below the gumline. This is teeth scaling. Scaling may be slightly uncomfortable for people who don’t often have their teeth cleaned. It can be a little uncomfortable because of the plaque that has hardened needs to be scraped off.
