Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I visit the dentist’s office?
The recommended advice is twice a year, or once every six months. This frequency will allow our doctors and team members at Windermere Dentistry to assess your oral health for any new concerns or damage on a routine basis and address these concerning issues early on in their development. Certain circumstances may result in the need for more frequent visits, including the presence of advanced periodontal (gum) disease or teeth that are overly sensitive to decay. Our goal is to provide you and your smile with diligent, personalized support!
Why are dental implants the right choice for replacing missing teeth?
Unlike more traditional solutions, dental implants are designed to mimic the entire natural structure of your original tooth. This state-of-the-art technique not only creates a seamlessly lifelike appearance and level of function for your new tooth, but long-lasting improvements for your oral health as well.
However, the cost and time commitment involved with dental implants might not the right choice for every patient who’s experiencing tooth loss. That’s why our Windermere, FL team will be happy to review all of the available options in greater detail with you so that we can decide on the one that best fits your individual needs and preferences.
Can you help me improve my smile’s appearance?
Of course! Several cosmetic dentistry services are available that can help you achieve dazzling improvements, including teeth whitening, metal-free restorations, Invisalign, and much more.
Going to the dentist makes me nervous. Can you help?
Definitely. Helping patients enjoy a high level of comfort throughout treatment is an important priority for our staff, which is why we offer several sedation dentistry services that create a much more relaxing atmosphere, including nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and advanced IV sedation with the help of our in-office oral surgeon.
Which sedation method is right for me?
Our team will be happy to review the benefits of each service with you in greater detail so that you can feel confident about your eventual selection. Generally, nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that is ideal for patients who need to recover quickly from their procedure and return to their daily routine, while oral conscious sedation is stronger and can successfully combat feelings of severe anxiety/fear.
Do you see dental emergencies?
Yes. Don’t hesitate to contact us today if you’re in need of assistance! Our doctors will make every effort to treat cases of severe dental injury or oral pain as soon as possible.
I don’t have dental insurance. Do you offer other financial help?
Monthly financing can be arranged through CareCredit! These plans offer little to NO interest, and they can simplify the overall cost of your treatment into multiple, monthly segments that mesh well with your family’s budget. To learn more, visit our new patients page.
