What Forms of Payment Are Accepted?
We accept credit, cash, check, and a variety of insurance plans. We also offer financing options.
How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
It’s recommended that you visit the dentist twice a year (every six months). Individuals with dental issues or dental appliances may need to make additional visits in between the biannual cleanings.
How Should I Take Care of My Teeth at Home?
For healthy teeth and gums, it’s important that you brush twice a day for two minutes and floss every day. Mouthwash is recommended to get to the spaces in between teeth. The consumption of sugary foods and drinks, as well as teeth-staining food and drink, should be limited.
What Should I do in Case of Dental Emergency?
In the case of a knocked-out tooth, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible to have the tooth returned to the mouth. Without touching the root of the tooth, clean it and try to put it back into the socket. If this is not possible, keep it in a glass of water or milk and the dentist will try to affix it back to the gum line.
A cracked or broken tooth may be uncomfortable and inconvenient, but if the dentist's office is not open, your appointment can hold off until regular business hours. Apply a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling and, if necessary, apply an over-the-counter dental cement on the area.
