With the year well underway and the kids likely already attending their first semester back at school, it may be time you took stock of your own dental needs for the year. We recently covered the topic of making full use of your dental insurance to plan ahead for your annual dental procedures, so if you are like most of our patients who wonder about scheduling dental services at the beginning of the year, it may help to consult with us to see how you can receive a gap-free dental check up. You would already know the importance of attending your twice-annual dental check-ups, but have you ever considered how your insurance provider could also cover you for a tooth cleaning or polishing session?
These types of sessions are perfect for those of our patients who seek cosmetic dental treatment, without the fuss or commitment involved with other more permanent solutions such as dental implants. If you’ve opted for a tooth polishing to go with your follow-up appointment at our dentist, the good news is that you may be eligible for a gap-free session with us. Typically, most of our patients seeking clean and polish sessions undergo the following process:
- Annual dental check-up appointment,
- Consultation regarding gap-free dental cover
- Review of cosmetic dental needs, and
- Scheduling of teeth cleaning and polishing sessions.
What Happens During a Check-Up and Clean?
Once you’ve consulted with us and had your annual dental check up done, our dentists will be better able to provide suitable recommendations as to what services would suit you best. Once the overall health and condition of your dentistry has been assessed, our dentists will then be able to determine any additional sessions you may need to improve the appearance of your teeth as you desire. A cleaning session typically includes a scale and polish to remove any stains or build-up of plaque and tartar, which typically occur with most of our patients. If there’s any need to detect decay, we may be able to schedule you for a follow up session that involves an x-ray scan of your teeth.
How You Can Take Advantage of A Gap-Free Clean and Polish
Dental check-ups can typically cost new patients out of pocket – especially if they do not have adequate dental insurance cover. However, plenty of our regular patients enjoy gap-free consultation and services that mean they do not pay a single cent for their annual scheduled appointments. Thankfully, we are also able to extend this convenience to teeth cleaning and polishing sessions, so you are able to keep a great smile throughout your year without having to worry about being able to afford the benefit of keeping great dental health and hygiene.
