My tooth hurts, what can I do?

Here are some ways to ease your dental pain:

  • take medicines such as Ibuprofen/Advil/Aleve or Tylenol
  • numbing gel helps but please avoid benzocaine products for young children
  • cold compress for temporary relief associated with swelling
  • for swollen gums, rinse with warm salt water
  • use mouthwash to disinfect your teeth
  • if pain persists for a day or 2, make sure to call us to see the dentist

Will insurance cover my dental work?

Dental plan benefits vary and may have different levels of coverage. Most preventive care such as cleanings is fully covered. Other procedures such as fillings, surgery or teeth replacement may have higher out of pocket costs. Dental insurance will help cover a portion of the treatment cost. If you have any insurance questions, please give us a call and we are more than happy to answer you insurance questions.

Do you accept my insurance?

We welcome all patients with or without dental insurance. We are contracted with most major dental plans. Call our office to see if we are in network with your insurance. We can explain benefits, coverage and out of pocket expenses. If you don’t have dental insurance, we got you covered. We have our own membership plan. If we are not a preferred provider for your insurance plan, our dental team is more than happy to process your claim.


Do I need x-rays?

All new patients will need x-rays to have a clear picture of your dental health. Oral health varies. Some may need every 6 month x-rays that will depend upon their medical and dental history.

Will I get my teeth cleaned on my first visit?

First visit requires more than a cleaning. Complete exam is necessary on your first visit. We will do an assessment of your oral health. We take radiographs, pictures, check gums and bone health. If it’s been awhile since your last dental visit, you may not have a cleaning on your first appointment.
