Frequently Asked Questions in Boonton
How often should I visit the dentist?
According to the American Dental Association, patients should visit the dentist at least two times each year to preserve the optimum level of oral health, and we agree. We recommend patients schedule checkups for their families every six months.
Can I bring my children to your office?
Absolutely. Our dentists have years of experience working with young patients, and we offer a variety of children’s dentistry services including dental sealants and early interceptive orthodontics.
What are interceptive orthodontics?
Interceptive orthodontics, as the name implies, are used to intercept and redirect teeth as they erupt from the gum line to prevent kids from developing misaligned teeth.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is more commonly known as gum disease, and it occurs when plaque and tartar buildup irritate the soft tissue leading to sores, tissue loss, and other oral health issues. We offer a variety of periodontal therapies to renew oral health.
Can I call if I have an emergency?
Please call our team right away, if you or a loved one experiences a dental emergency. We’re here to help whenever our patients need us. In many cases, we’re able to offer same day dental appointments, and if we’re not, we take the time to walk patients through first aid over the phone.
Do you offer sedation for nervous patients?
We are happy to provide dental sedation to help patients with phobias or anxiety, those who have sensitive teeth and gums, and those who need numerous procedures in one visit.
Do you take my insurance?
