Frequently Asked Questions

How Often Should I Get a Dental Cleaning?

In general, we recommend that most individuals get a dental cleaning every six months to ensure that any plaque or bacteria that may be developing in your gums is removed. However, this timeline may change depending on the state of your oral health. For example, people struggling with serious cases of cavities or tooth decay may have their teeth cleaned a little more frequently than this. This would be until we are satisfied that your oral health problem is finally under control.

What Happens During a Dental Checkup?

When you come in for a dental checkup, we will often start with a visual exam. If we feel there is a need for one, we may undertake other types of exams such as X-rays and more. Our dentists and the dental hygienist will then discuss with you the state of your oral health and what can be done about any issues that they may have detected. If a routine cleaning is part of this dental checkup, they will also perform that service. Typically, if there is a need for further treatment, the doctor will schedule an appointment with you so that the problem can be fixed.

Do I Need Dental Insurance?

While we offer clients a variety of options when it comes to payments, using dental insurance generally helps, as it may lower the cost of any treatment that you have to pay. However, there are many other options available. While booking your appointment, make sure to discuss with our team members your preferred mode of payment or if you have dental insurance. This helps us ensure that any paperwork that needs to be done is ready for your convenience.

Do You Offer Pediatric Dentistry Services?

Yes. We are a family practice serving individuals of all ages, including children. You will find high quality, compassionate pediatric dentistry here.

What Is the Difference Between a Dentist and An Orthodontist?
