Frequently Asked Dental Questions - Colleyville, TX

Quick Answers to Common Dental Questions

Our team has been answering patient questions for decades, and we love it! Education is a big part of what we provide the community, because when it comes to oral health, knowledge is always power! You’ll find our answers to some of the most popular questions we receive below, but if there is anything else you’d like to ask, give us a call today.

When should I get a checkup and cleaning?

Ideally, a patient should receive a professional dental checkup and cleaning at least twice a year, or once every six months. This enables our team to catch small problems early and treat them quickly, plus a cleaning helps us identify where a patient might be missing while they’re brushing so we can help them refine their oral hygiene routine.

My tooth really hurts. What should I do?

Is there a piece of food stuck between your teeth? After rinsing and flossing around the hurting tooth, if the pain doesn’t go away, then you likely have a cavity or injury, in which case you should give us a call. Acting fast will enable us to see you quickly and put a stop to the pain!

How long will it take to fix my tooth?

It really depends on the extent of the damage. Minor cavities can usually be fixed in a single appointment with a tooth-colored filling, but for a more extensive problem, we might recommend a crown. This usually takes two appointments to design and place. Whatever the case may be, it’s best to come see us soon to prevent the tooth from developing any additional damage.

Can you help with my dental anxiety?

Yes! Our friendly team can offer sedation for patients of all ages who don’t exactly like going to the dentist. We have multiple options that can be tailored to each patient so that every appointment is smooth and comfortable.

How long will it take to replace my tooth/teeth?

This answer depends on how many teeth you are missing, the current health of your mouth, and what kind of restoration you choose (whether it’s a bridge, implant, or dentures). The tooth replacement process can vary widely, so rather than giving you an unhelpful estimate here, it’s much better to schedule a consultation with our team so we can examine your mouth and discuss the process in more detail.

Will you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, our dental office is happy to accept many different dental insurance plans, but it should be noted that we are not in-network with any policies. We will file the claim with your provider and make sure you receive maximum coverage. Give us a call today to learn how we could use your specific plan.
