At Thomas Family Dentistry, it is our job and our primary goal to help you protect and maintain your oral health. We can only do this effectively when you visit us consistently for routine examinations and updated dental x-ray(s). For this reason, we don’t offer cleaning appointments without examinations and x-rays.
During your examination, Dr. Thomas will screen you for dental concerns such as gum disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay.
During your cleaning, our hygienist will remove the plaque buildup and bacteria that cause issues like gum disease and tooth decay; however, your hygienist can’t complete all the screenings that are vital to your oral health without current x-ray(s) an examination from the dentist.
If you have dental insurance, most plans cover most, if not all, of the cost of these preventative visits including the examination and x-rays, which means you will have minimal, if any, out-of-pocket expenses when you come to Thomas Family Dentistry for a cleaning and examination and/or x-rays.
If you have questions about your preventative appointment, please call us. We’re happy to answer them and find a convenient time for your next dental appointment.
