Dental hygiene is imperative, and cleaning your teeth is the first step toward their long term preservation. Avoid cavities, unsightly chipped teeth, tooth decay and gum disease by simply cleaning your teeth. There are several ways in which people can clean their teeth. The method in which you choose determines the price.
General Teeth Cleaning Costs
Standard dental cleaning ranges between £19 and £97. There are state programs that assists with dental costs for low-income families. Children under the age of 13 can normally receive free services. Contact the United States Department of Health and Human Services for more information about specific qualifications for low income families.
Deep Cleaning Costs
Deep cleansing focuses on the removal of plaque from the surface of teeth and gum line. This process is more expensive than a standard cleaning because the scaling and root planning, is performed in quarters, which can range between £65 per quarter. The cost of the entire mouth or all four quarters (upper right, upper left, lower right, lower left) can average between £260 and £1,040.
Micro Ultrasonic Cleaning Costs
Micro ultrasonic cleanings costs about the same as scaling and root planning procedures. If you have dental insurance, micro ultrasonic cleanings are usually included every three or six months, depending on your dental provider. For preventive dental care, co-payments are usually waived.
Cosmetic Cleaning Costs
Cosmetic whitening can also be beneficial in eliminating discolouration and removing stains on teeth. Whitening also brightens the natural pigmentation of teeth, improving teeth up to four shades. Cosmetic dentistry, specifically laser whitening can range between £390 and £780.
