You want to have a deep dental cleaning performed on your child’s teeth, and you’re wondering how much it might cost. The average cost of a deep cleaning is $75 to $200, though these prices can vary.
Read on to learn more about deep cleanings and how you can find affordable teeth cleaning for your child.
There are several things that can affect the price of a deep cleaning:
If the cleaning includes an examination or X-rays, the total cost can be higher.
Brushing helps to remove the plaque and tartar that builds up on teeth from the food your child eats. But brushing and flossing only removes so much, which is why professional cleanings from a dentist are necessary.
During a deep teeth cleaning, a dental professional uses special instruments to remove cavity-causing bacteria.
