Frequently Asked Questions
Please expand the questions below to learn more about some of the most frequent questions our patients have. Don't see an answer to your inquiry? Contact us to ask our friendly team - we are always happy to help!
How often should I visit the dentist?
We recommend patients attend preventive checkups every six months to ensure they maintain their healthiest smiles, and avoid more advanced oral health issues.
Should I consider dental implant tooth replacement?
If you’re missing one tooth or a full arch of teeth, dental implant supported restorations may be the best solution for you. Dental implants mimic the natural function of tooth roots, replacing the entire lost tooth from the roots up.
What types of orthodontics do you offer to straighten my teeth?
We offer alignment tray orthodontics using ClearCorrect and Invisalign clear braces. For patients with more advanced orthodontic misalignments, we use the Fastbraces system.
What is temporomandibular joint dysfunction?
TMJ dysfunction or TMD occurs when the joints connecting the jaw to the skull are damaged or strained. We offer a number of therapies to relieve the pain associated with TMD and restore the full range of jaw motion.
How do you treat gum disease?
The treatments for gum disease are largely dependent upon the extent of the disease. For mild gum disease, more frequent cleanings may be adequate to renew oral health. In the advanced stages, scaling and root planning and antibiotic therapy may be necessary.
Does teeth whitening work?
Professional teeth whitening offers patients predictable results up to ten shades brighter in as little as one visit to our office.
Do you take my insurance?
We are happy to process and file claims for any dental insurance plan, and we’re in-network providers for Delta Dental and Cigna. If we are not in-network with your insurance company, we will be glad to check your benefits to determine if there is a significant difference between your in and out of network coverage. Please contact our office with any specific insurance questions.
