Before you commit to an appointment at Avon Dental Group, you may have questions about our services or our dental office. We want to help you make the right decision for you and your loved ones, which is why we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked dentistry questions below. If you have more that you’d like to ask us, feel free to contact us! We’ll do what we can to help.
Why should I visit the dentist every six months?
You need to see a dentist at least twice every year because these visits are essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Dental problems can develop quickly, and these frequent appointments ensure that they are caught early on—before too much damage can be done. Plus, we’ll remove hardened plaque from areas that you’ve missed in your hygiene routine at home, helping you avoid future issues.
Do you treat children?
Absolutely! We welcome patients of all ages, including children. Each of our dentists and many of our team members are parents and know how to make everyone feel right at home. We’ll talk to your child and build a relationship based on trust.
Why should I replace my missing tooth?
Just one missing tooth can lead to many problems, including lower self-confidence. The other teeth can shift out of position and make eating more difficult. We offer several options for replacing missing teeth, such as a dental implant or a bridge. Schedule a consultation to determine which one is the right choice for you!
Do you place dental implants?
Yes, we do! Our team has the training and clinical experience to handle the entire dental implant process in-house. That means you don’t have to go to a specialist at any point. You get to stay with the team you already know and trust and get to save time!
What are the benefits of straightening my teeth with Invisalign?
For mild to moderate misalignment, Invisalign is ideal for those who want to straighten their teeth without sacrificing their appearance and without having to deal with diet restrictions. Not only do the clear aligners virtually disappear, but they also work more quickly than traditional braces, usually achieving results by 18 months at most.
Do you accept my dental insurance?
We can work with basically any dental insurance plan. We are in-network with Delta, Aetna, BlueCross, and MetLife, which means that you can save even more when you have one of these insurance plans. However, we are willing and able to file claims even if we are not in your insurance’s network.
