I am just wondering how much would it cost to get tartar

This answer was rated:

Hello, I am just wondering how much would it cost to get tartar under my bottom 4 teeth removed?
JA: When was your last visit to the dentist? Any irregular checkups?
Customer: 4 years ago
JA: Got it. Can you see or feel anything else in your mouth that is causing concern?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dentist should know?
Customer: No

Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You will need deep dental cleaning.

This should be part of preventive dental care.

Should not cost you much if you have dental insurance.
Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Would they remove it all in one day? Or would it have to be in multiple appointments?

Can be done in one appointment.

Is the process painful?

A little --but they can use local anesthesia if you wish so.
