The price of dentistry varies for several reasons, including the reason for your dental visit, the complexity of your treatment, and the type or level of insurance coverage you have.

A member of our team can work with your insurance company to create pretreatment estimates, and we always help patients make the most of their yearly benefits.

At Michael J. Franquemont, we offer periodic specials to help with costs and accept third-party financing through CareCredit. Specials sometimes include discounts on new patient exams and free smile makeover consultations. In addition, some CareCredit programs allow you to finance dentistry over time without interest.

We also focus on prevention, which saves you money on preventable treatments. Prevention includes:

  • Regular checkups to catch emerging problems before they turn into costly complications
  • Regular teeth cleanings to rid your teeth of the plaque and bacteria that lead to cavities and gum disease.

Your Centennial, CO dentist can also talk to you about best practices for a healthy smile, including nutritional advice.

Are you wondering how often you should visit your dentist in Centennial, CO? For most patients, having a routine dental check-up every six months is sufficient.

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist twice a year for preventive dentistry and teeth cleanings. However, some patients need to visit their dentist more often, depending on their overall oral health, lifestyle choices, and genetics. 

Personalized Dental Care

While the average person only needs six-month dental cleanings, patients who are more prone to cavities or those living with gum disease will benefit from having three, four, or even more dental cleanings per year. Your Centennial dentist can help you determine the level of care that’s appropriate for you.

In addition to your semi-annual teeth cleanings, you will also need periodic dental x-rays taken. Typically, we take new bitewing x-rays that show your teeth above the gum line about once per year, or at every other visit.

Dr. Mike will also perform a brief dental exam every time you come in for a visit. This exam's point is to check for dental “red flags” such as loose teeth, painful gums, and obvious gum disease.
