What is the average cost to get your teeth cleaned?

Answer

The average expense for a standard cleaning is between $50 and $135, according to the Humana Insurance Company. The cost of teeth cleaning varies by dentist. Dental insurance coverage also plays a factor in costs.

The amount paid for dental teeth cleaning is largely dependent on the location and experience of the dentist. In general, dentists base their rates on numerous factors, including type and frequency of cleaning. A patient that is visiting a dentist for the first time can expect to pay more if a dental X-ray is required before the cleaning session. Periodic cleaning visits may be offered at standard or discounted rates to existing patients.

If the patient has more serious issues with dental hygiene, the dentist may recommend a deeper cleaning method known as root planing, which requires additional effort, time and equipment. This advanced cleaning can cost between $400 and $1,600, depending on individual health factors.

Dental insurance often brings down the total out-of-pocket expenses. Depending on the type and amount of dental coverage, cleaning costs are partially or fully covered up to twice a year typically. Dentists recommend having teeth cleaned professionally at least once per year.
