If you’re not careful, you might learn something here…. But we suppose that was your intention. Many common dental issues are not common knowledge.

How do you decide when to get dental treatment done? Why would I get fillings done if my teeth don’t hurt? Can my fillings wait until next year, when my insurance rolls over? I’ve been putting off that root canal thing, but now my face is swollen! What do I do now?

If you’ve found yourself asking these questions, we would like to help. We have put together some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), Dental Terms, and Dental Videos for your knowledge. Every person is unique and each treatment plan reflects this. If you have questions that are not answered from this page, and you have been seen by our office within the last year, feel free to call and ask questions. If the front office cannot answer your questions, they will ask a dental assistant or hygienist to review your treatment with you.
