Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Needham, MA

Expand Your Dental Knowledge

Dentistry is an expansive topic. We understand that many patients have questions about certain treatments and about what to expect when they visit us. We are always willing to address such questions personally. You can contact us at your convenience to speak with our knowledgeable team. We also invite you to take a look at the information below, where we have compiled a list of some of the questions we most frequently get asked, along with their answers.

Do You Treat Dental Emergencies?

Yes! Contact us as soon as you begin to experience dental pain, and we will arrange our schedule to attend to you as quickly as possible. When you arrive in our dental office, we will evaluate the situation and take fast action to relieve your pain and protect your oral health.

Do You Accept My Dental Insurance?

We accept most types of PPO dental insurance. To find out how we can help you take advantage of your benefits, contact us prior to your first appointment. Give us your policy information, and we will let you know whether we accept it and how it may apply to any specific treatments that you are considering.

What if I Cannot Afford a Recommended Treatment?

Let us know about your concerns. We may be able to help you take advantage of low-interest financing. In some cases, lower-cost treatments are available. Such treatments may not have as many benefits as the service we originally recommended, but they may prove to be an affordable way to address immediate dental problems.

What Can You Do to Improve My Smile’s Appearance?

We offer a variety of cosmetic treatments, including professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and more. We are even able to address complex aesthetic issues via a smile makeover service.

What Is the Best Way to Replace Lost Teeth?

Dental implants are the gold standard among tooth replacement options because they rebuild lost teeth from the roots up. They look and function almost exactly like the real thing! They are able to address most cases of tooth loss, whether a patient has lost a single tooth or many teeth.

What Can I Do Every Day to Protect My Oral Health?

Twice-daily brushing and once-daily flossing are vital. You should also eat a balanced diet and avoid extremely sugary or extremely hard foods. Wearing a mouthguard when you play sports can be a key to preventing trauma to your teeth and gums. If you smoke or chew tobacco, you should strive to quit such habits.
