Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Have a question for our doctors? Want to know if it’s time for your next checkup? Curious about our payment and financing options? Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions our patients ask us every day. Be sure to click on the links to get more information. If you still have a question after reading through this page, be sure to give us a call! We’re always happy to help you better understand your dental care.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Our doctors, as well as the American Dental Association, recommend that everyone should visit their dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning in order to maintain their dental health and avoid preventable problems such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.

How are oral health and overall health connected?

Due to a phenomenon called the oral systemic connection, the health of your mouth is a direct influence on your overall health. This means that taking care of your teeth and gums is more important than ever, and at Pearl Care Dental, we always keep this connection in mind when planning and performing your treatments.

I’m afraid of going to the dentist. Can you help with that?

We certainly can! If our beautiful view and friendly team aren’t enough to help you feel comfortable, we can provide you with something called IV sedation. This powerful method can help even the most nervous dental patient practically sleep through their appointment so they can get the healthy smile they deserve without the stress.

Can you make my smile look better?

Pretty much everything we offer can do exactly that, but for that extra boost, we have cosmetic dentistry. With it, we can do everything from whitening your teeth to giving you a complete smile makeover and more!

What can you do about my missing teeth?

We can help you replace them! We have more traditional treatments like dental bridges and dentures, but we can also give you the most complete tooth replacement solution available today: dental implants. We actually offer all-inclusive implant care here at Pearl Care Dental, meaning we can help you conveniently rebuild your entire smile from start to finish.

How can a dentist help with sleep apnea?

Custom-made oral appliances, like those provided by a dentist, have been shown to effectively alleviate snoring as well as the symptoms of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you still need treatment for your OSA or you’re sick of your CPAP machine, our team can provide you with a simple alternative designed just for you.

What are your payment options?

We accept cash, check, all major credit/debit cards, CareCredit, and most dental insurance plans. We are an in-network provider for Delta Dental, but we happily accept all plans and will work to get the most out of your benefits.
