Points Of Interest And News Of Interest

Yes, we accept most dental insurance. As a courtesy we will file your insurance claim for you. We are considered out-of-network but have many patients who notice little to no difference in the insurance benefits that are paid when coming to our office. We are happy to do a complimentary benefits check when you arrive in our office.

This question will vary patient to patient. If you have a minimal history of decay/fillings, we usually recommend every 6 months. Patients with gum disease or with a high decay/plaque rate should come more frequently, either every 3 or 4 months depending on the severity of the disease. Many studies show a strong correlation between dental cleanings and prevention of heart disease and stroke.

This will vary from patient to patient. Ideally, before it breaks or fails to limit the amount of work needed to restore it. Since we cannot predict when older dentistry will fail, we recommend replacing when signs of wear, breakdown or corrosion start to occur to the older restorations, especially the older silver fillings. We create a long-term treatment plan for you and together we decide what type of restoration will be needed for each suspect tooth. Once the plan is complete, you can move as slow or fast as you want to restore these teeth. As long as there is no active disease or fractured tooth or filling, you can plan your treatment at a time that is convenient for you. This may be over a number of years; if you wait until something fails or decays, you may have fewer options and lose flexibility.

We recommend any toothpaste with fluoride. We always caution about using whitening or tartar control toothpastes due to abrasiveness which can cause sensitivity. Fluoride is the most important ingredient that cannot be absent when selecting a toothpaste.
