Teeth Cleaning

Regular dental cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral hygiene. At JBDentistry, our proficient hygienists effectively eliminate plaque and tartar accumulation that surpasses the capabilities of brushing and flossing performed at home. This process promotes dental hygiene by maintaining the brightness of teeth and reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. It is advisable to undergo professional dental cleanings every six months in order to optimize oral health.

The cost of professional teeth cleaning can vary depending on factors such as the dental clinic’s location, the specific dental needs, and the inclusion of additional procedures like dental X-rays. The cost of a standard teeth cleaning session typically ranges from $75 to $200 for patients. This investment enhances the visual attractiveness of your teeth and serves as a vital preventive measure against potential expensive dental problems in the future.

Tooth Fillings

Tooth fillings are a common procedure used to repair cavities and restore the integrity of your teeth. At JBDentistry, we offer two types of fillings:

  1. Composite Fillings: These are tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are durable, aesthetically pleasing, and perfect for restoring the function and appearance of your teeth.
  2. Ceramic Fillings: Known for their strength and color stability, ceramic fillings are an excellent choice for larger cavities. They offer a more robust and longer-lasting solution than composite fillings.

The cost of tooth fillings can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size and location of the cavity, the filling material used, and the complexity of the procedure. On average, you might expect to spend in the following ranges for these types of fillings:

  • Composite Fillings: The cost for composite fillings typically ranges from $90 to $250 per tooth. These fillings are more aesthetically pleasing and require a less invasive procedure, making them a popular choice for patients.
  • Ceramic Fillings: Ceramic fillings, being more durable and long-lasting, can cost between $250 to $450 per tooth. They are often recommended for larger cavities or areas requiring more robust restoration.

At JBDentistry, we understand the importance of providing quality dental care at an affordable price. We strive to keep our services competitively priced and are transparent with our billing and pricing structures. Additionally, we work with various insurance providers and offer flexible payment plans to accommodate our patients’ financial needs.

Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common yet serious condition that can lead to tooth loss if untreated. At JBDentistry, we provide comprehensive periodontal treatments, including scaling and root planing, to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line. Our team works diligently to restore the health of your gums and prevent further damage.

The cost of periodontal treatment can vary widely depending on the severity of the condition and the specific type of treatment required. Generally, patients might expect to incur the following expenses for periodontal care:

  1. Initial Consultation and Examination: This first step, crucial for diagnosing the extent of periodontal disease, can range from $50 to $200. It may include x-rays and a detailed examination of your gum health.
  2. Scaling and Root Planing: This deep cleaning procedure, often necessary for treating gum disease, can cost between $200 to $800 per mouth quadrant. The total cost depends on the number of quadrants requiring treatment.
  3. Follow-up and Maintenance: Periodontal disease requires ongoing management. Maintenance visits, which include cleaning and monitoring, can range from $100 to $300 per visit.

It’s important to remember that investing in periodontal treatment is not only a financial decision but also a crucial step toward maintaining your overall oral health and preventing more serious complications in the future.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, can sometimes cause problems as they emerge. They may become impacted, only partially emerge, or grow at an angle, causing pain and potential damage to adjacent teeth. Our skilled dental surgeons at JBDentistry are experts in wisdom teeth removal, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.

Here’s a general breakdown of potential costs:

  1. Simple Extraction: The cost per tooth can range from $75 to $200 for wisdom teeth that have fully emerged and are not impacted. This is a simpler procedure and typically involves less complexity.
  2. Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal: If the wisdom teeth are impacted (not fully emerged or grown at an angle), the procedure becomes more complicated, and the cost can range from $225 to $600 per tooth. The higher price reflects the added complexity and time required for the procedure.
  3. Anesthesia Costs: The anesthesia used can also affect the overall cost. Local anesthesia is typically included in the extraction cost, but if sedation or general anesthesia is required, this can add $250 to $800 to the overall cost.
  4. Additional Costs: There may be additional costs for the initial consultation, X-rays, and follow-up visits. These can range from $50 to $300, depending on the extent of the services provided.

At JBDentistry, we are committed to providing clear and upfront pricing to our patients. We are fully aware that wisdom teeth removal can be a significant financial consideration, and our team works diligently to offer high-quality care at a reasonable cost.

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction may be necessary for various reasons, including severe decay, infection, or orthodontic purposes. Our dentists at JBDentistry perform extractions with the utmost care and precision, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. We also guide post-extraction care to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.

The cost of a tooth extraction can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the type of extraction required. Generally, patients might expect to incur the following expenses:

  1. Simple Extraction: A simple extraction typically ranges from $75 to $200 per tooth. This includes using local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth.
  2. Surgical Extraction: If a tooth is not easily accessible, such as a tooth that has not fully emerged from the gums or is broken at the gum line, a surgical extraction may be necessary. A surgical extraction can range from $150 to $650 per tooth. This procedure is more complex and may involve additional techniques and sedation options.
  3. Additional Costs: Additional costs may include initial consultations, X-rays, and follow-up visits. Depending on the services needed, these can range from $50 to $300.

We strive to provide affordable, high-quality care and offer a transparent pricing policy. Our team works with various insurance providers and offers flexible payment plans to ensure our services are accessible to everyone. We are committed to discussing all costs and options upfront so you can make very informed decisions about your dental care.

Root Canals

Our dentists remove the damaged area of the tooth, clean and disinfect it, and then fill and seal the space. Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatments are not painful and can relieve discomfort.

Here is a general guide to the potential costs:

  1. Front Teeth (Incisors and Canines): Root canals on these teeth tend to be less complex and range from $300 to $1,500 per tooth. These teeth typically have only one root, which simplifies the procedure.
  2. Premolars: The cost for root canals on premolars can range between $400 to $1,800. These teeth can have one or two roots, which may increase the complexity and cost of the procedure.
  3. Molars: Root canals on molars are usually the most complex due to multiple roots. Molar root canals can range from $500 to $2,000 per tooth.
  4. Additional Costs: Additional costs may include an initial consultation, X-rays, and a dental crown to protect the tooth after the procedure. The crown can add $500 to $3,000 to the overall treatment cost, depending on the material used and the complexity of the crown.

At JBDentistry, we are committed to providing comprehensive and affordable dental care. Our team works with various insurance providers and offers flexible payment options to make this essential treatment accessible to our patients.

Dental Exam

Regular dental examinations are essential for the maintenance of oral health. During examinations at JBDentistry, dentists assess for cavities, inspect gum health for indications of disease, and assess the likelihood of developing additional oral health complications. In addition, X-rays and other diagnostic procedures may be conducted to ensure a thorough evaluation of oral health.

The cost of a regular dental exam can vary, depending on the specific services and procedures involved. Typically, patients might expect to spend in the following ranges:

  1. Basic Dental Exam: A standard dental exam, which includes a visual inspection of your teeth and gums, can range from $50 to $200. This exam is essential for identifying any potential issues early on.
  2. Dental X-rays: If X-rays are necessary to get a closer look at your teeth and jawbone, this can add $25 to $250 to the exam cost. The price varies depending on the type of X-rays taken.
  3. Cleaning: Often, a dental exam is accompanied by a professional teeth cleaning. While this might be an additional cost, it’s crucial for maintaining good oral health. The price for cleaning can range from $75 to $200.
  4. Additional Diagnostic Procedures: Occasionally, additional tests or procedures, such as oral cancer screenings or detailed periodontal assessments, may be recommended. These can add to the overall cost of the exam.

At JBDentistry, we believe in the importance of regular dental check-ups and strive to make them as accessible as possible. Our practice provides transparent pricing and collaborates with multiple insurance providers to optimize the utilization of your benefits. We offer flexible payment options to accommodate all if not every patients without dental insurance, allowing them to access necessary care without experiencing financial burden.

Here’s a breakdown of potential costs:
