Although a proper at-home regimen is a necessity to maintain healthy teeth and gums, there’s only so much that a toothbrush and floss can accomplish. To reach and clean areas a toothbrush can’t, a dental cleaning is needed at least once a year. Scottsdale dentist, Dr. Rod Gore, and his team perform this routine procedure for patients of all ages. The goal is to help a patient maintain the teeth and gums for a beautiful smile and superior oral health. As part of preventative dental care, a cleaning helps preserve teeth for a lifetime to avoid painful procedures that could’ve been prevented with regular cleanings.
Dental Cleanings Reviews
"Dr Gore and his team are top notch! I have absolute confidence in their ability to provide the best dental care out there. They care for my entire family from 3 years and up. My children love visiting their office and actually get excited when I tell them they are going to the dentist! Five star service is provided from the moment you walk in the door and I highly recommend them."- M.M. / Facebook / Feb 01, 2016
"I want to take a quick moment and thank Dr. Gore and his team. For many years I have suffered from extreme anxiety regarding dental visits of any kind. I started to see Dr. Gore based on a referral from a friend, as well as the fact they offer sedation therapy. I really cannot express how thankful I am for Dr. Gore and team. They are professionals in every way and they go above and beyond to make sure your experience is pain free and comfortable. I am glad to say that I no longer feel the need for sedation and I do not have any anxiety whatsoever when i think of the dentist. They are amazing, plain and simple."- N.J. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2016

"Best Scottsdale dentist is Dr. Rod Gore. I've experienced this many years and it's true each time I visit."- J.G. / Google / Feb 22, 2016
"I have now had several experiences with Dr. Gore's assistant Tricia. She is amazing. Dr. Gore may be the best dentist in Scottsdale right now but if Tricia decides to get a little more formal education he'd better watch out."- P. / SmileReminder / Jan 06, 2016
What to Expect
Dental cleanings usually start with an examination of the patient’s teeth. During the examination, the dentist will look for any signs of damage, cavities, or decay. The patient’s teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools. Patient will have the opportunity to discuss the health status of their teeth with their dentist as well as discuss home dental health suggestions.
After receiving cleaning services at the dentist, patients should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by his office during their treatment. Patients should brush their teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss. If given special instructions or items to use by or office, such as specific mouthwash or toothpaste, patients should follow the directions given and schedule an appointment for follow-up.
Considered a form of preventative health care, most insurance companies cover some, if not all of the cost of a routine cleaning. Our office will check with the patient’s insurance policy before sending a bill to the patient of any remaining payment due. The overall cost for a cleaning varies among dental practices and is also determined based on the condition of the patient’s teeth. If covering the cost out of pocket, patients should expect to pay between $50 and $135.
