Generally, no. Our hygienists are very skilled and take their time to make sure you never experience any discomfort. Patients with gingivitis (tender, swollen, or bleeding gums) may experience some discomfort during their cleaning, but we try to make sure all our patients are as comfortable as possible.
While every patient is different, you can expect to visit at least twice a year, or every six months. This allows Dr. Lee and her team the opportunity to monitor changes in your oral health and make timely treatment recommendations.
Yes, checkups and cleanings are covered by insurance. Most major dental insurance plans cover two preventive visits a year. Deep cleanings are often covered in part by insurance, although the total rate of coverage will depend on your insurance provider.
Be sure to have your teeth cleaned professionally by our team every six months to keep your teeth cavity-free, your gums healthy, and your smile bright.
You can expect to start taking your child to the dentist by their first birthday, or when their first tooth comes in. It’s important to make sure your child receives quality dental care as soon as their teeth begin coming in, so be sure to book their first dental appointment as recommended.
