You may not realize it, but many dental practices consider patient education to be an important part of the services they offer. After all, someone who’s fully informed in matters of oral health is more likely to make the decisions that are best for their smile! Check the FAQs below to see if they include the answers you’ve been looking for. Remember, you can always call us to ask additional questions – no need to be embarrassed!


How often should you see the dentist?

Regardless of your age, you should typically have two dental checkups and teeth cleanings each year. As such, we suggest that you plan on visiting us every six months. Even if you don’t think there are any problems with your teeth and gums, our team may be able to find signs of developing issues and treat them before they can lead to oral health complications that might require more costly forms of treatment.

Do you see children at your dental office?

Yes, we’ll gladly see everyone in your family, including your little ones. We will always put your child’s comfort first while we’re taking care of their smiles. You count on us to keep you informed of your child’s dental development so that you can take the appropriate steps to deal with any problems that might come up.

Is replacing missing teeth important?

While you technically have the option of not replacing your missing teeth, it’s always better to fill the gap as soon as possible. An incomplete smile tends to be at a higher risk for gum disease, and your remaining teeth may start to drift out of alignment. We can restore your complete grin before any severe consequences occur. Dental implants are typically an excellent choice since they can replace the roots of any teeth that you’ve lost.

Can you still help me even if I haven’t been to the dentist for a while?

Yes! It ultimately doesn’t matter when your last dental appointment was; we can still help you get the care you need to keep your smile healthy, and you can count on us to do it all without making you feel judged. If you have any damaged or missing teeth, we can help you figure out a solution. Oftentimes, the answer may be to put together a full-mouth reconstruction plan that addresses multiple problems at once.

Can I correct crooked or crowded teeth without metal braces?

When it comes to braces-free solutions for misaligned teeth, Invisalign is often one of the first things to come to mind. Not only can it be used to address a wide variety of orthodontic issues, but it’s so discreet that most people won’t even notice it. Additionally, since Invisalign trays can be removed, you won’t have to avoid any foods or change the way you brush and floss your teeth.
