Don't know where you live.

My cleaning charges are $85 in suburban Dallas. If you get Xrays, then it is about $165, but you only need them every year or 18 months if no other problems. If you want the doc to inspect your teeth, then add another $45. In any event, around $300 if managed right.

If you live near a dental school, possibly cut rate cleanings there.

Some folks head to Mexico for discount dental work at the clinics there. False teeth, crowns, bridges, etc....

The killer comes if you need crowns or bridges. That can set you back a thosand bucks, and figure they might need replacing at 10 years - 15 if you are lucky.
