Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I visit the dentist?
Patients of all ages should visit the dentist every six months in order to prevent common oral health concerns, and diagnose and treat dental irregularities in their earliest stages preserving natural dental structures for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Is teeth grinding really a big deal, and should I bother with treatment?
Nighttime teeth grinding and clenching, bruxism, may seem like little more than a nuisance, but left untreated, it can result in a number of oral health concerns. A simple, comfortable nightguard worn during sleep effectively protects teeth from potential damage associated with bruxism.
Can I bring my kids to your office?
We are proud to offer pediatric dentistry services, and offer family appointments for our patients’ convenience. We provide a number of treatment options for developing smiles including dental sealants, fluoride treatments, athletic mouthguards, and more.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the soft tissue that occurs when bacteria, plaque, or tartar buildup irritate the gums causing sores, bleeding gums, and other oral and overall health concerns. We offer a number or treatments for gum disease in our office.
Does teeth whitening work?
Over the counter teeth whitening toothpastes, mouth rinses, strips, and gels make big promises, but only professional grade whitening products from our team can deliver. Contact our team to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation to find out more about professional teeth whitening.
What if I get nervous before I visit the dentist? Can you help?
We’re happy to offer sedation dentistry for patients who experience dental phobia or anxiety, those with sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex, and patients in need of multiple or complex restorative treatments.
Do you offer financing, if I can’t cover the full cost of treatment out of pocket?
We’re happy to work with CareCredit, a third party medical and dental financier to provide patients low or no interest payment plans for more advanced treatments.
