In layman’s terms, prophylaxis is a preventative dental cleaning in which dental tools and polishing procedures are used to remove plaque, tartar and stains above the gumline. Most dentists and hygienists recommend a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year, and x-rays once a year. A periodic exam is also usually performed at these visits.
After your dentist has performed a thorough exam and reviewed your x-rays, he or she may find decay and suggest further treatment such as fillings, crowns, or root canals. DentalSave can help you cut costs on these common procedures as well.
A Dentalsave membership card can save you 25% to 50% on various dental services and procedures at over 8,000 DentalSave network providers, and 20% to 50% at over 100,000 Careington network access points.
The average cost of a dental cleaning is $93, but with your DentalSave membership you pay only $51, giving you a savings of $42.00.
Your membership can also help you save on cosmetic procedures such as veneers, crowns, and white composite fillings. Porcelain laminate veneers cost an average of $1,911 each, but as a DentalSave member, you pay only $655, allowing you to enjoy a savings of $536. You can even save 25% on costly procedures such as dental implants and orthodontics. Prices may vary depending on location and your dentist’s fees.
A beautiful smile builds confidence and can boost your overall physical health and well-being. Improving and maintaining your dental health doesn’t have to cost a fortune. With a DentalSave membership, a healthy, vibrant smile is within your reach.
