Take Care Of Your Teeth And Gums

Routine teeth cleaning and checkups are essential for preserving your oral health, including your teeth, gums, and the entire mouth. Professional cleaning removes plaque, tartar, and bacteria that cause decay, gum disease, and chronic bad breath. A hygienist can reach areas that are difficult to clean with routine brushing and flossing at home.

A thorough cleaning and exam provide the perfect opportunity for your hygienist and dentist to monitor your oral health. They can spot problems early on, allowing for resolution or prevention before issues become painful and expensive. Regular teeth cleaning also helps your teeth look whiter and brighter naturally, without the need for bleaching treatments.

    Here’s how professional cleaning benefits your oral health:

  • Eliminates Plaque: Removes sticky bacterial film that eats away at your enamel.
  • Removes Tartar Buildup: Gets rid of hardened plaque that can lead to gum disease.
  • Stain Removal: Cleans off stains from coffee, tea, and other substances.
  • Health Monitoring: Checks for receding gums, chipped or broken teeth, and other signs of disease and infection.
  • Regular dental visits ensure that your mouth stays healthy and your smile stays bright!

What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?

Gum Health

Gum health is super important and often under-appreciated. Your gums support your teeth and frame your smile. During the cleaning, we’ll closely examine your tongue, gums, teeth, and other areas of your mouth, with a special focus on the gum line. This ensures your entire mouth is healthy and free from signs of inflammation or impending gum disease. And don’t worry, we won’t be too hard on you about your flossing habits.

Plaque & Tartar Removal

Plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth. If not routinely cleaned away with thorough brushing, flossing, and professional cleaning, it can harden into tartar deposits. Tartar is usually darker in color and often found in tricky-to-clean places like the gumline. A hygienist has the tools and expertise to carefully scale away stuck-on plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas. After this, we polish your teeth to remove stains and leave them gleaming.

Dentist Exam

After your teeth are cleaned, it’s the perfect time for a dentist to examine them. Your dentist will review your chart and X-rays, focusing on problem areas or troubling patterns. The dentist might recommend further treatment or provide tips and advice on how to slow or reverse tooth decay, inflammation, or gum disease. We are always happy to answer any questions you have and to hear about any discomfort, sensitivity, or dental pain you’ve experienced.

Cost Of Teeth Cleaning In King City

Routine checkups and cleanings are excellent ways to prevent and avoid dental problems, which is why most insurance companies will nearly completely cover them, typically every six months. If you don’t have dental insurance, you can expect to pay anywhere from $120 to $300 and up, especially if it’s your first visit or if it’s been a long time since your last cleaning.

When determining the actual cost of your treatment, we consider several important factors:
  • Your Current Oral Health: The overall condition of your mouth plays a significant role. Healthier mouths typically require less intensive cleaning, while more complex issues might require additional care.
  • X-Ray Requirements: If new X-rays are necessary to assess your dental health, this will add to the overall cost.
  • Time Required: The amount of time the dental team needs to meet your specific needs also influences the cost. More extensive cleanings naturally take longer.
  • Equipment and Supplies: The specific tools and materials needed for your cleaning are factored into the price. High-quality care often involves specialized equipment and advanced techniques.

These routine appointments are very important to us, as we see them as the most effective way to prevent more invasive treatments, serious dental pain, and keep you as happy and healthy as possible. By investing in regular cleanings, you are taking proactive steps to maintain your oral health, which can save you from more extensive and costly treatments in the future.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most people find teeth cleaning to be painless. However, if you have sensitive teeth or gums, you may experience slight discomfort. Inform your hygienist, and they can take steps to make you more comfortable.

During a teeth cleaning, the hygienist will examine your mouth, remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth, and floss between them. The dentist may then perform an exam and review X-rays if needed.

A typical teeth cleaning appointment lasts about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.

No, professional teeth cleaning is safe and does not damage your teeth. It helps maintain and improve your oral health.

The cost of a teeth cleaning without insurance typically ranges from $120 to $300, depending on various factors such as the need for X-rays and the condition of your teeth.

A regular cleaning focuses on the surfaces of your teeth and above the gum line. A deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a more intensive procedure that cleans below the gum line to treat gum disease.

    I was really excited to visit Dr.Alina. She checked everything, explained all the details and put in the fillings. But what is more important is her attitude and approach to children. My daughter is three years old and a half, she needed to put in her 1st filling. I was worried about it. But Dr.Alina talked to her, showed some cartoons and at the end gave her a small toy. My daughter was excited about her first dentist visit. Thank you so much. Highly appreciate and recommend the whole team and especially, Dr.Alina. Now she is our family dentist!!!

    I recently visited Affinity Dental Studio for the first time and had a great experience due to the friendly staff and excellent service. As a new patient, I was a bit nervous but they truly made me feel welcome and they definitely know what they’re doing so I had zero issues during my visit. The location itself was clean and modern plus the use of TV/Netflix is a huge bonus as you have something to do while your appointment is taking place. And you can even choose what to watch :) I will definitely be returning here for future appointments and will recommend this location to all my friends and family!

Chantel is always great to talk to on the phone (and in person), and she answers your questions in a friendly way, making you feel good for calling them. Dr. Alina is a talented dentist. Very knowledgeable, and takes time to answer your questions and concerns. I felt heard, which was very important for me based on the situation I came with. Studio is very modern and clean. Overall it is an A+ experience, highly recommend.
