Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Indianapolis, IN
What Our Patients Want
to Know About Dentistry
Dentistry is a very broad topic. You can learn quite a bit by looking through the rest of our website, but after you’re done with that, you may still have some questions about your health and the treatments you might need. We’ve compiled the answers to some of the most frequently asked dental questions on this page as a handy reference. If you still don’t see what you’re looking for, you can contact our dental office to speak directly to one of our team members.
How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?
At least two dental checkups are needed every year to protect your teeth and gums from the buildup of plaque and tartar. These visits also provide us with an opportunity to find small cavities and early gum disease so that we can begin treatment as early as possible.
Do You See Children?
Yes, our family-friendly dental office works with smiles at all ages no matter what stage of dental development they’re currently in. We offer dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and other services that can protect your little one’s smile while it’s growing.
What’s the Best Way to Replace Missing Teeth?
Every patient is in unique circumstances, so there’s no one tooth replacement solution that’s best for absolutely everybody. However, dental implants are usually recommended whenever they’re determined to be a viable option because of how long they last, how natural they look and feel, and how beneficial they are to your long-term health.
Should I Be Worried About Bleeding Gums?
Any kind of oral bleeding is cause for concern, especially when it’s likely related to gum disease. This common infection can grow to put your smile and your overall health at risk if you’re not careful. Call us immediately if you think you’re experiencing gum disease symptoms.
Do You Accept Dental Emergencies?
Yes, we treat toothaches, dental fractures, and knocked out teeth in order to get our patients out of pain and preserve their smiles for the long term. We will make time to see you as soon as possible for your emergency appointment, often on the same day as your initial call.
Will You Take My Insurance?
We accept both in-network and out-of-network dental plans. Call us with your insurance information to see if we take it.
