Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

At Texas Dentistry, we believe that the more knowledge you have, the healthier your smile can be. On a daily basis, we focus on educating our patients by showing and explaining to you the issues that we see. We also make sure we clearly and thoroughly answer your questions. Below are just some of the most common questions we get from our patients about our dental office and services; we hope these answers will help you make more informed decisions about your treatment with us.

Why is it important to visit Texas Dentistry twice every year?

These appointments are crucial to keep your smile happy and healthy for the long term. During these semiannual visits, we examine your mouth for any problems and address them while they are small and easy to resolve. Also, we perform a dental cleaning, which keeps oral problems from developing in the future. Waiting to visit us until you recognize a problem on your own could mean that you’ll need more invasive and expensive work—not to mention the potential pain you could experience! Attending these appointments can save you time and money down the road and help prevent unnecessary pain.

Can you treat kids?

Yes, we can! In our Terrell dental office, we do everything we can to create a family-friendly environment. As parents, many of our team members know just how to make all our patients—from the young to the not-so-young—feel relaxed in the dental chair. Regardless of your family members’ ages, we look forward to helping everyone achieve and maintain healthy, happy smiles!

I have a toothache. Can you help me?

Absolutely! Our Terrell team can help you overcome the issue and get your smile back to full health. Just give our dental office a call, and we’ll strive to see you as soon as we can. In the meantime, you can floss around the tooth and rinse your mouth with warm water to make sure the area stays clean.

I’m missing a tooth. What are my options to replace it?

Missing just a single tooth can greatly affect your oral and overall health. Replacement options include a partial denture or dental bridge, but to restore your entire tooth structure, you can choose a dental implant. This option is the only one that strengthens your jaw bone and helps keep your remaining teeth healthy. Also, unlike dentures and bridges, which need to be replaced about every 7 to 10 years, dental implants can last for over 30! Contact our dental office to schedule a consultation if you’re interested in learning more about your replacement options.

My teeth look yellow or dull. How can you help?

At Texas Dentistry, we provide two options to restore your smile’s youthful, bright appearance. Both use Opalescence, a brand proven to provide dramatic results. You can choose to either have a one-time teeth whitening treatment in our dental office or use take-home whitening kits to whiten your teeth over a period of a couple of weeks. To get started, just schedule a consultation, and we’ll help you get on the path to the smile you’ve always wanted!

What advanced technology do you use?

At Texas Dentistry, we believe that the best way to deliver outstanding dental services is to improve how we diagnose and treat our patients. That’s why we have equipped our Terrell dental office with the most innovative technology in the business. For example, our digital X-rays significantly reduce your exposure to radiation, and our use of dental lasers causes little to no pain and allows you to heal faster. Every tool and technique we use is designed to give our patients a smooth, comfortable, and stress-free experience.

Do you take my dental insurance?

For most PPO dental insurance plans, we are in-network providers, so chances are good that we’re in-network for yours! Even if we aren’t, we have insurance experts on our team who can file claims for you and help you save as much money as possible. To learn how you can maximize your insurance benefits, contact our dental office in Terrell!
