Frequently Asked Dental Questions - Carrollton, TX
Dental Questions on Your Mind? Let Us Help!
We always enjoy it when our patients bring us their dental questions. It gives us a chance to teach them more about their own oral health care and explain our own services in greater detail. If you don’t see the information you’re looking for on this page, you can always call us directly; we can personally answer your question during a face-to-face appointment!
How Often Should I See the Dentist?
You should schedule at least two dental checkups every year, which will give Dr. Albeer an opportunity to check for decay and tartar buildup at regular intervals. There are cases where you might need more frequent checkups, such as when you have persistent gum disease.
Can I Bring My Children to Your Dental office?
Yes! Dr. Albeer is experienced in working with children of various ages and loves the chance to help their smiles grow and develop properly. He can also teach your little ones the best habits that they can use at home to take care of their teeth.
How Can You Help Me Improve My Smile?
We have plenty of options for refreshing and repairing a smile that has lost its luster. Some patients may only need cosmetic improvements via teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, while others might need full mouth makeovers that include implants and crowns. We’ll create a personalized treatment plan just for you once we have a full picture of your situation.
Should I Be Concerned About Gum Disease?
You might not be too worried about gum disease while it’s still gingivitis; at that point, the worst you might experience is bleeding whenever you floss. But at some point, gum disease can turn into periodontitis, which can result in tooth loss and other severe oral health issues. You need to get in touch with us right away if you have any concerns regarding your gums.
Is a Toothache an Emergency?
Not all toothaches are the same, but persistent dental pain should be taken very seriously, especially if you don’t know the underlying cause. You may sometimes be able to relieve the issue by flossing to remove bits of food stuck in your teeth, but if that doesn’t help, there’s a good chance that there’s an infection that requires a root canal. Make an appointment with us as soon as you can.
How Long Does It Take to Get a Crown?
At most dental offices, the answer would be “at least a few days or even weeks.” That’s because the crown would have to be made at a separate dental lab. At Rosemeade Dental, however, we have state-of-the-art CEREC technology that lets us design and place crowns in a single day!
Will You Take My Insurance?
We will accept a wide variety of insurance plans. Regardless of whether we’re in-network with your carrier or not, you can count on us to handle the process of filing the claim for you. We can also offer financing for those who need it.
