Our team is always ready to personally answer your questions. You are welcome to call us to learn more about dentistry and our practice in general. However, we understand that many people like to do online research. That is why we have put together a list of some of the questions we frequently receive, along with their answers. We hope you find something useful in the following information.
How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?
If you are experiencing severe bleeding or have broken facial bones, visit the local ER before you come see a “dentist near me.” If your situation is not life-threatening, call our practice instead. Tell us what you are experiencing, and we will provide you with expert advice on what to do next. In most cases, we are able to attend to emergency patients on a same-day basis.
During your emergency appointment, our priority will be to relieve your pain and design a treatment plan to get your oral health back on track. We may also give you tips on how to avoid another dental crisis in the future.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
The “best place” to get dental work depends on your specific needs and preferences. What is important to you? Are you mostly interested in preventive care, or do you need some restorative work done on your smile? Are financial options one of your primary concerns? Once you define what you are looking for, you can begin searching on Google. Pay attention to things like a dentist’s credentials, their reviews, and their payment policies. Once you find a few practices that meet your criteria, you can start calling them to learn more.
What Is the Best Way to Find a Cosmetic Dentist?
Cosmetic dentistry is not an officially recognized dental specialty, so it takes some research to find a practitioner who can makeover your smile in the way you want. Here are a few tips to help you out:
- Consider credentials. Look at the dentist's bio and see how long they have been practicing, and keep an eye out for any special training they have completed as well.
- Consider services. There are a range of cosmetic services that can achieve similar results. However, they may have different price points and different treatment experiences.
- Consider convenience and personalities. A practice’s location, the personalities of its staff members, and other factors are not the most important. However, they can play a role in your overall cosmetic dentistry experience.
What Is the Best Way to Find a Dentist Who Does Dental Implants?
Before you request an appointment with a dental implant dentist, it is important that you understand a bit about how the procedure works. Some dentists partner with local specialists for the surgical placement of the implants, while others do everything in-house. Both approaches have their advantages. For example, partnering with specialists ensures that patients receive only the best care at every stage of their journey. You should also consider a dentist’s experience with dental implants and ask about their past implant cases. A practice’s website may have some relevant information, but you might have to call their office to get answers to your specific questions about how they approach the treatment.
