How Much Does Preventive Care Cost?
Cost is always a factor when it comes to oral care, whether or not you have dental insurance. That’s why we focus on providing you with an affordable preventive dentist in Franklin, TN. The cost of this care will vary depending on the type of care and whether you have insurance.
An important thing to consider is that preventive care can save you a significant amount of money in the long run because it is much more affordable than restorative dentistry that is needed to fix a dental problem.
Also, insurance plans generally cover your regular cleanings and we take most PPOs at our office. If you need assistance with the cost of your oral care, talk to us about our flexible financial options.
Types of Preventive Services
Preventive dentistry covers many different procedures that keep your mouth healthy and prevent problems from occurring.
At Carothers Parkway General Dentistry, we offer these preventive procedures:
- Dental Checkups and Cleanings: The checkup looks for problems with your teeth and gums, including tooth decay and gum disease, and the cleaning takes care of plaque and tooth stains. You should have a checkup and cleaning twice a year, unless recommended more due to a dental problem.
- X-rays: We might perform an x-ray during your checkup to catch hard-to-see problems like cavities.
- Sealants: Sealants are coatings that are placed on children’s molars to prevent these teeth from decaying.
We will also recommend preventive activities you can do from home, such as brushing, flossing and using mouthwash. If your teeth warrant it, we might also recommend a specialty fitting, such as a mouth guard or orthodontics.
