Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions
Dentistry is a broad topic. Understandably, many of our patients have questions about certain treatments and what to expect when they visit our dental office. We are always willing to answer such questions personally; contact us to speak to one of our knowledgeable team members. Or, you may find answers to your frequently asked dentistry questions in the brief list below. They represent some of the most common questions our patients and potential patients ask us.
Do you treat dental emergencies?
Yes! Dr. Aveni and our team do not want you to suffer from the pain of a dental emergency for any longer than necessary. We are often able to see emergency patients on a same-day basis. Give us a call when you are most in need, and we will prepare to see you as soon as possible.
What is the best way to protect my oral health?
We generally recommend that patients visit us twice a year for a cleaning and exam, but more frequent visits may be necessary if you have gum disease or struggle with other oral health issues. Between visits, you should stick to a thorough daily oral hygiene routine that includes twice-daily brushing and once-daily flossing.
How can I replace my missing teeth?
There are several treatments that can replace missing teeth. However, we usually recommend dental implants as the best option because they look, feel, and function very similar to natural teeth. In many cases, Dr. Aveni is able to perform the entire dental implant procedure right here in our dental office without referring patients to outside specialists.
Do you accept my dental insurance?
We are in-network with a number of major dental insurance companies. Even if we are not in your plan’s network, we may still be able to help you maximize your benefits.
What if I cannot afford a recommended treatment?
We will work with you to help you afford your dental treatment. We are happy to accept a range of payment options, including CareCredit, which offers low- to no-interest financing for dental and medical services.
Can you help me improve the way my teeth and gums look?
Dr. Aveni is a skilled cosmetic dentist. Whether you want to get rid of teeth stains, makeover your smile with porcelain veneers, or reshape your gum line, our team is ready to help you achieve the attractive smile you have always wanted.
I have complex oral health problems. How can you help me?
We welcome all sorts of patients, including those with complex oral health problems. After your initial evaluation, Dr. Aveni will design a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs. We can perform many advanced services in-house, but we may also partner with local specialists to help you achieve a healthy, fully functional mouth.
