Scaling And Root Planing Costs In Kentucky

I just talked to a potential Hydro Floss user from Kentucky.   She mentioned that her husband had just been through a SRP  (Scaling And Root Planing) treatment.

I asked her about the costs.

$730 was out of pocket.   The insurance picked up 60% of the total cost.

She quickly calculated that the total expense was about $1530.

This is inline with what I vaguely remember reading in the past.   That the average cost for a full mouth SRP was right around $1600.    The costs could be expected to be slightly lower in Kentucky.

So, these numbers make complete sense.


We talked about the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator and periodontal pocket depths.    I've personally experienced a reduction in those periodontal pocket depths from using the HF and I have talked to many others about it too.

I'll be more than happy to have a no obligation discussion.  Not about sales, just conversation.  The purpose would be to help you find out if the Hydro Floss is something that would be useful to you or not.

Deep Cleaning or Scaling And Root Planing Costs

Costs Seem To Vary Greatly

There seems to be a lot of variation on the costs of Scaling and Root Planing Treatments across the nation and even across towns.   One article I read put the cost at around $250 per quadrant - which would be $1000 for the whole mouth (four quadrants).

I've also heard $1600 for the whole mouth and even more.   So, there seems to be a great deal of variation.   I've seen much higher and much lower.   It might pay to shop around. 

My Experience

My own experience is one where I actually avoided the cost of this treatment.   That's because I was able to shrink my periodontal pocket depths and get my gums to a healthy state again.

At the time I was told that the ONLY thing that would help me was this treatment.  That is what my dentist, at that time, said to me.   In fact, I was told that if I refused the treatment, they would not be responsible if I lost my teeth.

I was pretty sure that things were not as dramatic as that.  But, I was aware that there was a problem to be solved.  The hygienist mentioned to me that once I had that treatment, every subsequent cleaning would need to be 'special'.

I didn't like the sound of any of this.  So, I set out to see what I could do.

After my success, I wrote the book:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease, A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease.   I have always had the wish that more people could get the information and knowledge that are in this book.

General Terms Only

I do feel obligated to say that what I have said on this page is in general terms only.  For specific questions about your own unique dental health situation, you should direct those questions to your doctor or periodontist.

Having said that.  Here is the primary tool that helped me make my gums healthy again.   It worked so well that the dentist and hygienist were shocked by my progress.  The dentist said: "Whatever you are doing keep it up.  You don't need that treatment now."

This story had a happy ending! 


PS: I think every family could benefit from my book.  a lot of people have the problem of gum disease whether they know it yet or not.
