Frequently Asked Questions

Do you see people without dental insurance benefits?

Our office even has an In-Office Savings Plan for less than $1.50/day to benefit people focused on yearly preventative care.

Do you accept payment plans?

We accept several different payment methods and work with third-party financing to minimize financial barriers. Waiting for treatment can lead to additional and more extensive treatment that could cost significantly more. So, don’t delay early treatment options.

Do you see people with dental anxiety and fear?

Yes, our staff focuses on comforting any dental anxiety and fear that you may have. We have nitrous oxide (aka Laughing Gas) available, and work with local specialists if deeper unconscious sedation is needed.

How long do fillings take?

Most tooth-colored resin fillings take about 15-20 minutes each.

Do I need to take time off from work or school after a dental procedure?

Typically, not. After most basic dental procedures (like fillings, crowns and simple extractions), most people return to their normal work and daily activities. There usually is some localized numbness from the local anesthesia used next to the area treated but very few restrictions.

Do all crown procedures need root canals?

No, only a small percentage of crown procedures must have root canal therapy but most root canal therapy typically requires a crown procedure to keep the tooth protected under heavy function.

How long is a crown or cap procedure?

Typically, 60 to 90 minutes from the time you arrive to when you’re leaving. Most crown procedures have a second visit for the crown fitting appointment once the final custom porcelain crown is made by the dental laboratory but that visit only takes about 20 minutes.

How often do I need a cleaning?

Every 6 months. Most people accumulate mineralized plaque over a several months that could lead to gum or periodontal disease which can lead to tooth loss. Some people have oral conditions or specific genetic bacteria that may need to be seen for treatment more frequently every 3 to 4 months.

When does someone need to see a dentist for their first visit?

When the first tooth is visible or no later than their first birthday. This is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists.
