Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Northborough, MA

Expand Your Dental Knowledge

We love to answer our patients’ questions, whether they are curious about oral health in general or they want to know more about our dental office. Below, we have listed some of the questions we frequently receive, along with their answers. If you do not find the information you were hoping for, you are always welcome to give us a call. We will be delighted to talk to you and personally provide you with the answers you need.

Do I Really Need to Visit the Dentist Every Six Months?

Biannual dental visits are essential for most adults. They allow us to identify oral health problems in their early stages — and perhaps even prevent such problems altogether. Some patients, particularly those with gum disease or other ongoing oral health concerns, should visit us even more frequently than every six months.

What Is the Best Way to Replace My Lost Tooth?

A traditional fixed bridge is an effective way to replace a lost tooth. However, we recommend a dental implant as the better option. An implant is anchored in the jawbone and thus provides the sturdiest, most natural-feeling, and longest-lasting type of tooth replacement?

Do You Accept My Insurance?

We accept payment from virtually any PPO plan. We are even in-network with several insurance policies. To learn more about our financial policies and to discover how we may be able to help you maximize your coverage, give us a call.

How Can I Improve the Way My Smile Looks?

We offer a number of cosmetic treatments, including professional whitening, porcelain veneers, and more. When you visit us for a consultation, we will get to work on a plan to help you achieve your dream look.

Do You Accept Emergency Patients?

Call us right away when your dental emergency starts. We will do our best to rearrange our schedule so we can attend to you as soon as possible — probably even on the same day you call.

Going to the Dentist Makes Me Nervous. Can You Do Anything About That?

We want everyone to feel comfortable in our dental office. You can expect us to treat you with warmth, empathy, and true compassion. We also offer two types of sedation — nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.
