Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

That depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth. If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, it will likely require more time than usual for your hygienist to remove hardened tartar from your teeth. In addition, you may have more issues you’d like to address with your dentist during your exam. The average time for a cleaning and exam, though, is about an hour.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

You can typically eat right after a dental cleaning, as it doesn’t require any numbing or recovery time. However, it’s important to consider the potential sensitivity of your teeth and gums after the cleaning. If you experience sensitivity or your dentist advises against consuming certain foods or drinks immediately after the cleaning, it’s best to follow their recommendations. In general, you can resume your regular eating habits after a dental cleaning without significant delay or restrictions.

Does insurance cover a dental cleaning and exam?

Most dental insurance policies will allow a patient to visit our office twice a year for cleanings and exams without any additional out-of-pocket costs. Because plans vary, we will look at your specific benefits ahead of time so there won’t be any financial surprises.

Do dental cleanings hurt?

Dental cleanings involve the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth using specialized tools. You may experience slight pressure or vibrations during the cleaning, but it should not be painful. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, your dental hygienist can adjust the cleaning technique to ensure your comfort. Regular cleanings are important for maintaining oral health and preventing more serious issues, so you should get them regularly.
