Concern Resolution Problems Solved
We know choosing a new family dentist can be stressful. It's important that you feel confident and comfortable with your new dentist and we want you to know, we understand! We never want you to feel anxious or nervous about any aspect of your dental care. Below are some common issues our patients discuss with us.
Are you one of the many people who experience “dental dread”? Whether you bear only a mild nervousness or you’re someone who suffers sweaty palms, a racing heart and swarms of terror in your gut at the thought of the dentist, we have two painless sedation options for you – or a combination of the two. Choosing a sedation method will help you have a more stress-free experience.
You’re certainly not alone if pain is a concern when visiting the dentist. But we are here to dissolve that worry and make your appointment a painless one.

If nerves are your burden, we offer two sedation options to put your mind and body at ease. They’re safe and painless ways to make your experience more stress-free.
We encourage you to talk with us about your anxieties and worries and together we’ll find comfort for you.
It’s a shame we have to put a price on a dazzling smile, but we feel our price is fair and competitive for the quality and expertise that you get. Your healthy mouth and brilliant teeth are worth quality care and materials that last.
After a full evaluation of your dental needs we can discuss costs and payment options. If you have dental insurance, that’s a good place to start. It will depend on the procedure and your carrier as to what insurance will pay. We also accept CareCredit and can help you get signed up.
Different procedures require different time frames, but depending on your needs and realistic expectations, we can work to develop a suitable schedule. After a thorough evaluation of your dental health we can discuss what we recommend and come to an agreement on a time frame that pleases you.
Giving specific numbers on the longevity of cosmetic and restorative work is tricky. So many variables affect the longevity of your man-made dental work. Factors to be considered are:
• Bite pattern – an uneven bite pattern can prematurely wear on your dental work.
• Diet – Do you smoke? Drink alcohol? Eat and drink sugary foods? A “yes” to any of these questions can contribute to shortening the life of your restoration.
• Habits – Consistent actions like grinding or clenching your teeth, or nail biting can damage your dental work.
• Oral health – How well you take care of all your teeth will play a part in your dental work’s longevity. Poor oral health will trim life off your natural and artificial teeth.
• General Health – Being in good overall health with help keep your implants healthy, too.
The best answer is that we consider our restorations durable and long-term. We understand that this level of dental work is an investment and we want to make your investment a wise and excellent one for you.
