When was the last time you got your teeth cleaned? Not simply brushing and flossing. But professional cleaning by a trained dental hygienist or dentist’s assistant?
If you can’t remember, then it’s probably been too long. Twice per year teeth cleaning is recommended by dental professionals to ensure optimal oral health.
It May Be Free – Oral Health
If you have dental insurance, you may already be getting free teeth cleaning twice annually as a benefit. That’s because many dental insurers understand that regular teeth cleaning is one of the most effective ways to keep teeth and gums healthy and safe. It’s usually more cost-effective for insurers to pay for it than to have to pay for things like extractions, root canals, or other costly procedures later.
Sadly, there are a lot of people with dental insurance who don’t take advantage of this benefit. Generally, it’s in the “use it or lose it” category, meaning if you don’t make an appointment with your dentist for twice per year teeth cleaning, you essentially are paying for it through your dental insurance premiums — either directly or through your employer — and not getting any value for it.
