We’re Dedicated to Educating Our Patients
Is it time for your next checkup and cleaning? Will we accept your dental insurance? You can find answers to these questions and many more down below. Our patients ask us interesting questions every day, and we figured it would be helpful to include answers to some of the most common ones right here on our website. If you have a question we haven’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to just call us and ask!
How often should I visit the dentist?
Our doctors recommend that patients of all ages should have at least two checkups and cleanings per year in order to keep their teeth healthy and avoid preventable dental problems such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.
When should my child start seeing the dentist?
Your child should start having regular dental visits within six months of their first tooth erupting or no later than their first birthday.
Why do I need to see the dentist even though I brush/floss my teeth every day?
Great question! The fact of the matter is that while brushing and flossing are essential to your dental health, they aren’t able to clean many areas of your teeth, leaving you vulnerable to develop cavities. A professional cleaning by our hygienist can target these hard-to-reach spots and make sure your smile is protected year round.
Can you fix my broken/decayed tooth?
We certainly can! We have a variety of treatments dedicated to rebuilding the smile, including tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and more.
Can you replace my missing teeth?
Yes! We have a multitude of options that can restore your smile, including the most advanced tooth replacement available today, dental implants. With them, we can rebuild your smile in the most natural-looking way possible with a prosthetic that will last for decades to come.
How can you improve the appearance of my smile?
Just about every treatment we offer can enhance your smile’s appearance, but for that extra boost, we have cosmetic dentistry. With it, we can do everything from whiten your teeth to give you a complete smile makeover!
Will you accept my dental insurance?
Yes! We are in-network with most major PPO dental insurance plans, and we’ll make it easier than ever to get the most out of your benefits. To learn how we can work with your particular plan, contact us today.
