Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions
Do you have questions about your dental care? Curious about your options for replacing missing teeth? Want to know if we’ll accept your dental insurance? You’ll find the answers to these questions and more of the most popular ones we receive every day below. We’re always happy to talk to you, so if there is anything else you’d like to ask, don’t hesitate to give our team a call.
How often should I go to the dentist?
Both of our dentists agree with the American Dental Association’s recommendation on this one: the average healthy patient should attend at least two checkup and cleaning appointments each year, averaging about one every six months. This is the best way to prevent small dental issues from going untreated for a long time, plus professional cleanings can actually stop cavities and gum disease from developing in the first place.
Can I bring my child to Jupiter Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry?
Yes. Our team has plenty of experience taking care of growing smiles of all ages, and our dentists are actually parents themselves. Our warm and friendly team will ensure your child enjoys comfortable visits, and we can provide any services they need to achieve and maintain a healthy, confident smile year after year.
What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?
This really depends on your particular situation, but in most cases, our first recommendation for a patient would be dental implants. Unlike other treatments, implants actually replace an entire tooth from root to crown, creating something that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. They are extremely strong, and with the right care, they can easily last for decades on end. Would they be right for you? To find out, we invite you to schedule a consultation.
I’m really nervous about going to the dentist. Can you help me?
We see anxious patients every single day, and we’re more than happy to help them feel comfortable in our dental office so they can take care of their teeth without the stress. Sedation dentistry is specifically dedicated to helping patients overcome persistent dental fears, and it can make even the most complex procedure a breeze for patients. No matter your level of dental phobia, we can find the right type of sedation for you to guarantee an enjoyable visit.
What is the best way to whiten my teeth?
While you’ll find plenty of whitening treatments at the store, they all pale in comparison to the professional-strength products we use here at Jupiter Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry. In just one appointment, we can easily make your smile six to eight shades brighter in about an hour—you won’t find that on store shelves. We can even send you home with a custom-made kit that will break up those stubborn stains that most generic treatments leave behind.
How can I get rid of the gap between my front teeth?
We actually offer two ways to take care of this common flaw. Porcelain veneers involve placing thin ceramic shells over the front teeth to close the gap, or we can actually move the teeth closer together using Invisalign. Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment that doesn’t use brackets or wires. Instead, a patient just wears a series of clear plastic aligner trays, enabling them to enhance their smile and maintain their daily appearance in the process. Which option would be best for you? Give us a call to learn more and find out.
Will you accept my insurance?
Jupiter Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry is happy to accept any PPO dental insurance plan to help our patients save on their dental care. Just give us a call today to learn how we can use your specific plan at your next appointment.
