No, cleanings are handled by trained dental hygienists who understand how to provide you with a comfortable experience. Your hygienist will gently yet thoroughly clean and floss your teeth. Patients currently living with gum disease may experience some tenderness or bleeding. However, you can prevent discomfort by going to the dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
Every smile is different and requires personalized treatment, and the same goes for your unique smile! The American Dental Association recommends visiting your trusted local dentist twice a year, or every six months. This helps Dr. Proscia diagnose problems as they arise and gives the prompt treatment recommendations you need to achieve and maintain a healthy smile.
For most patients, basic preventive care (such as checkups and cleanings) is covered 100% by their dental insurance. In-depth periodontal (“deep”) cleaning may be covered in part between 50%-80%, depending on your coverage. We will be sure to confirm your benefits and help you understand your insurance coverage to make the most of the coverage you’re owed.
