Whether you haven’t been to the office in a long time or you’re simply looking for answers regarding a specific treatment you’re thinking about, we want to help.

How often should I visit for a dental exam and cleaning?
We recommend that you come in for routine exams and cleanings at least once every six months. During these visits, we’ll make sure no problems invisible to the naked eye are present as well as perform a detailed cleaning to remove harmful plaque and tartar. Your child should come in for their first dental appointment within six months of their first tooth erupting or on their first birthday.
Can you repair my damaged teeth?
We have multiple solutions for restoring damaged teeth, so you’re not forced to settle for an extraction! Not only do we provide tooth-colored fillings to restore teeth without compromising appearance, but we can also customize dental crowns to prevent fractured teeth from breaking apart further. Even if you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, we’re more than happy to work with you to create a comprehensive treatment plan to restore your smile to the fullest.
How can you improve my smile’s appearance?
There are many solutions to resolving a variety of cosmetic imperfections. Whether it’s more affordable solutions like direct bonding or teeth whitening or more complex options like porcelain veneers. We can even create a smile makeover treatment plan so that all of your needs are met accordingly. Customizing a treatment plan can be one of the most effective ways to hide discolorations, gaps, chips and cracks.
What are your tooth replacement options?
Whether you need to replace a single tooth or all the teeth in your smile, we can provide you with a dental bridge or denture that’s fully customized to your needs. If you need to have a dental implant placed, you’ll be happy to know that we partner with the best implant specialists in Grafton County to perform the surgical portion of your treatment.
Can I bring my whole family to the practice?
Absolutely! We are happy to have all members of the family come in for their dental treatments. We are even open five days a week, including Fridays, so you don’t have to struggle just to get your family’s treatments out of the way. Our team is more than prepared to manage patients of all ages and offer services that meet their specific needs.
Should I visit you for a dental emergency?
If you are experiencing tooth or gum discomfort or you damaged/knocked-out a tooth because of a recent oral injury, please don’t put off treatment. Give us a call right away. If you are severely bleeding from the mouth or you believe your jaw is broken, go to the emergency room. After you have stabilized, come to our office so we can better assess your oral condition.
