Answers to Common Questions
Choosing a dental office to call home for you and your family is an important decision. We understand that you want to make sure it will be a good fit before you go in for your first appointment. That’s why we’re providing our responses to some of the most frequently asked dentistry questions we are asked every day. Contact us if you have others not addressed here!
What do you offer for anxious patients?
Dentistry is one of the top phobias. If you regularly postpone dental visits because of fear, you’re not alone. We offer several solutions to help with this common concern. For starters, we have a friendly, knowledgeable team with over 100 years of combined experience. They’ll answer all of your questions and treat you like a member of our family – not a number on a chart. Comfort amenities (blankets, pillows, music, etc.) are at your disposal, and we offer two levels of sedation. Oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide may help you relax, depending on your specific needs.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
Some cosmetic dental treatments are expensive – there’s no denying it. However, we offer several options for people seeking smile enhancements. You can choose a conservative and cost-effective method with tooth-colored bonding. If you prefer a top-of-the-line treatment of porcelain veneers and crowns, then we can work with you to create an affordable financing plan through CareCredit. With 0% interest and low monthly payments, CareCredit makes cosmetic dentistry affordable on any budget.
What are mini dental implants?
Mini dental implants are the slimmed-down version of traditional dental implants. About the size of toothpicks, mini dental implants can be placed in a single visit and a denture can be attached the same day. This option is often used to secure lower dentures for patients who are not eligible for traditional dental implants.
Do I need to visit the dentist regularly if I have good oral hygiene?
The American Dental Association recommends twice-yearly dental visits for everyone over the age of three. Even if you have impeccable oral hygiene, you can’t remove all the plaque or see inside your teeth. With professional hygiene instruments and digital X-rays, we can clean and examine your mouth to ensure it remains in tip-top shape.
