Cleaning is a word that has been misused to identify a procedure that is routinely completed on a patient that is free of disease or has a healthy mouth. The appropriate word for this type of “cleaning” is prophylaxis, which is the specific type of cleaning that most insurance companies cover two times per year. There are several different types of “cleanings” that are recommended by the dentist and hygienist depending on the patient's oral health. We accept all insurance at Sweet Water Dentistry! If you do not have any insurance for a teeth cleaning that is not a problem either! We are running a new patient special. FIll out the form below and ask about the special!
