Dental Cleaning (Prophylaxis)

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.

Types of Prophylaxis?

An adult prophylaxis is a preventative dental cleaning for individuals with generally healthy mouths, no heavy bleeding during probing or cleaning, and no signs of periodontal disease.

A gross debridement is a dental cleaning that consists of removal of plaque and calculus from the teeth of people who suffer from gingivitis or periodontal disease.

Root planing and scaling, commonly known as a “deep cleaning“, is performed on those with mild to moderate periodontal disease. Antibiotic gels and local anesthesia are often used in conjunction with root planing and scaling.

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.

What are the Average Costs for Preventative Dental Care?

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.
