Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I visit the dentist?
The American Dental Association and our team recommend visiting the dentist at least twice each year in order maintain the optimal level of oral health. Frequent preventive maintenance allows our team to help patients keep their natural teeth for a lifetime preventing most major oral health concerns.
I have difficulty numbing with local anesthetics. Do you offer anything that can help?
Many patients have sensitive teeth, gums, and gag reflex or difficulty numbing with local anesthetics alone. We frequently recommend nitrous oxide for a decreased level of pain sensation and increased relaxation throughout treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation can also help anxious patients.
What are dental sealants used for?
Dental sealants are used to create a barrier between teeth and the potentially hazardous, decay-causing bacteria that live in the mouth. Sealants are most often recommended for children who are still learning proper at-home hygiene, but adults who have had significant struggles with tooth decay may want to consider dental sealants as well.
I’ve tried whitening strips that don’t work at all. Does professional teeth whitening really work?
Store bought teeth whitening products make big promises, but they’re very rarely able to deliver the results patients desire. That’s because over the counter whitening pastes, rinses, strips, and gels are only able to remove surface level stains. Professional whitening penetrates the surface of teeth removing stains and brightening smiles up to ten shades.
Do you take my insurance?
We’re happy to work with patients to process and file claims for any insurance provider. It’s always our goal to maximize patients’ coverage.
I don’t have insurance. Can you help?
