The Benefits of Regular Checkups

Routine teeth cleaning and checkups are crucial for preserving overall oral health, addressing issues like decay, gum disease, and bad breath by removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria. Professional cleanings reach areas inaccessible through regular brushing and flossing, allowing for thorough monitoring and early detection of potential problems. Additionally, regular cleanings promote naturally whiter and brighter teeth without the need for bleaching treatments, while also addressing issues like plaque buildup, staining, and gum recession.

What Happens During A Teeth Cleaning?

Gum Health

Your gums are a vital part of your smile’s support system. We meticulously examine your tongue, gums, and teeth, focusing on the gum line to ensure overall oral health, free from inflammation or impending gum disease. Rest assured, we understand the importance of gentle guidance on flossing habits.

Plaque & Tartar Removal

Plaque, a soft film on teeth, can harden into tartar if not regularly cleaned. Tartar, often found in challenging areas like the gumline, is skillfully removed by our hygienists using specialized tools. Once cleared, we polish your teeth, leaving them gleaming and free from stains.

Dentist Exam

Following the cleaning, our dentist conducts a thorough examination, reviewing charts and x-rays to pinpoint any issues or patterns of concern. Whether recommending further treatment or offering advice on oral health maintenance, we’re here to address your questions or any discomfort you may experience.

Cost of Teeth Cleaning in Summerlin, Las Vegas

Routine dental checkups and cleanings are often covered by insurance companies, typically every 6 months, as they are crucial for preventing dental problems. Without dental insurance, costs can range from $120 to $300 or more, especially for initial visits or long intervals between cleanings.

Factors determining the actual cost include:

  • Your current oral health
  • Need for new x-rays
  • Time required by the dental team
  • Equipment and supplies necessary for your treatment

We prioritize these routine appointments as they are the most effective way to prevent more invasive treatments, alleviate dental pain, and maintain your overall health and happiness.

    I had a great experience with Dr. Truong and the entire staff during my new patient and filling appointments. Everyone is so kind, and the staff works together as a team. Dr. Truong and Kris, the hygienist, were thorough and great listeners. During my filling appointment I had painless numbing injections done by Dr. Truong, and he worked quickly while being so precise. I would recommend Dr. Lobato & Associates to anyone!

    I have been with doctor Lobato for over 20 years, BEFORE that time l went thru 3 dentist, before l met him. A few years ago they changed my plan and l had to change to another dentist. Which was a very miserable time for my teeth. I finally got the opportunity to change my health and Dr. Lobato was one of the first doctors l went back to. Now once again my teeth 😬 and my dental health is perfect again. Not only is he great so is his staff.
