Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Lenox, MI

Everything You Want to Know About Dentistry

There’s a lot to know about dentistry, and it’s always good to have a professional to turn to for answers. Below are some common questions that we’ve often heard from our patients. If there’s something else you want to ask, contact our team today.

How Frequently Do I Need to See the Dentist?

You should make room in your schedule for a dental appointment at least once every six months. Cavities, dental infections, and other oral health issues often don’t have obvious symptoms early on, so you should have your smile checked by our team regularly to avoid problems.

What’s the Fastest Way to Fix an Injured or Decayed Tooth?

Placing a dental crown might take two visits under normal circumstances, but thanks to Planmeca, we can speed up the process. In just a single visit, you’ll receive a lifelike crown that can restore the strength of your tooth while protecting it from further damage. You can enjoy all the benefits of a quality restoration in less time.

What Should I Look for When Choosing a Toothbrush?

Trying to figure out which toothbrush is right for you can be tricky, but there are a few factors that you should keep in mind. For example, it should have soft bristles that won’t be too harsh on your enamel as well as a handle that’s easy to hold. You can consult with our team if you would like further tips on selecting a brush.


Why are Dental Implants So Highly Recommended for Missing Teeth?

There are several reasons why dental implants are often seen as the top tooth replacement option. Not only can they act as new tooth roots, but they can actively help stop your jaw from losing bone density. Furthermore, if you take good care of them, they can last for decades.

Do You See Children?

You’re more than welcome to bring your children to our Lenox dental practice. In fact, we recommend that you start taking your little ones to the dentist early on in life. It’s best to deal with small dental issues promptly so that they don’t eventually lead to major oral health complications that could affect your child’s dental development.

Will You Accept My Insurance Plan?

Not only do we welcome various dental insurance plans, but we can file claims for you so that you don’t miss out on the benefits that you deserve. If you’re interested in exploring other forms of payment or need help using your dental benefits to the fullest extent possible, you’re always welcome to ask one of our team members for help.
