Professional cleanings are very important. Even if you brush and floss daily at home, it’s not possible to completely remove all the plaque and tartar that normally collects on teeth and gums. Plaque can cause cavities and gum disease. A skilled dental professional like Dr. Jasmine Naderi will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth until they’re smooth, preventing new plaque from forming. You’ll also receive practical tips on keeping your teeth and gums healthy at home. Oral hygiene is a gateway to the rest of your body, so we make sure your up to date with all the latest home care technologies available. You may also have a fluoride treatment to help prevent tooth decay.

Gum Disease Treatment (Scaling and Root Planing)

Also known as a deep cleaning or scaling and root planing, gum disease treatment is performed when bone loss and large deposits of tartar are noted inside of your mouth during an examination. An instrument is used to determine how much bone loss a person has endured over his or her lifetime.

The procedure normally requires a person to be numb, and then goes on to remove plaque, calculus (tartar), and then polishing and smoothing of the exposed surfaces of the roots of your teeth.

The procedure involves multiple instruments that we will use to get this accomplished. Gum disease treatment normally requires two visits, but some of our patients have their entire mouth deep scaled and planed during one visit.

After the procedure is performed, you are brought back every three months for Maintenance therapy. During these appointments, your gums are evaluated again, and a cleaning is subsequently performed.

How much do teeth cleanings cost in Houston?

The average cost of a basic teeth cleaning is $150. Prices may vary based on the treating doctor, and how long your cleaning appointment will take.

How much does Best Dental charge for a deep cleaning?

For a full mouth deep cleaning we charge a flat fee of $600 (cash price). This is a fair price and we believe the quality of the cleaning you get with us will be second to none.

Will dental insurance help pay for my cleaning?

Dental insurance will definitely help you with your dental cleanings costs. Most insurance companies cover most if not all of your basic cleanings, and a portion of your deep cleaning costs.

If you need a deep teeth cleaning and you live in the Richmond, TX area, feel free to give our office a call for a free dental consultation with Dr. Jasmine Naderi.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Cleanings

How do dentists clean teeth?

A dental cleaning involves the use of two main types of instrumentation:

  1. A cavitron or piezo is initially used to removed gross plaque and calculus from your teeth. A cavitron is a machine that uses ultrasonic vibrations to remove this debris without damaging your own teeth. This leaves your teeth feeling nice and clean.
  2. Hand instruments are used to remove any left over calculus that the cavitron machine cannot remove.

Afterwards our team will get your teeth flossed, and a mouth rinse will be used to complete the dental cleaning treatment.

Does a teeth cleaning hurt?

A teeth cleaning may be uncomfortable if you suffer from gum recession. Why this happens a lot of times is that since the recession has exposed your root structure, a teeth cleaning may make your roots more sensitive after the cleaning treatment is completed. Normally, this sensitivity will resolve itself over the course of a few weeks. If the sensitivity is severe, a de-sensitizing gel or toothpaste may be prescribed to help with the pain.

What happens if you never get your teeth cleaned?

Without a proper professional cleaning, tartar cannot be properly removed. Without its removal, bone loss around your teeth will progress to a point where your teeth may end up getting loose as you get older. It’s always advisable to get a dental check up and cleaning every six months by a reputable dentist.

Can you remove tartar yourself?

You can remove plaque, and a minute amount of tartar with a toothbrush, but you will need to get a professional dental cleaning by a dentist or hygienist to properly remove all the calculus that has built up around your teeth.

Can teeth fall out after a teeth cleaning?

If you have suffered from severe bone loss, a deep cleaning may be recommended by your dentist. You should know that some teeth are held together by the existing tartar in your mouth, and that its removal may end up loosening your teeth even more. Most times these teeth will end up needing to be extracted and replaced with a bone graft and possibly a dental implant.
