Frequently Asked Questions<1. What type of toothbrush should I use?
Our Hygienists recommend a soft or extra soft toothbrush. Using a hard bristled toothbrush incorrectly can cause your gums to recede.
2. What does my insurance plan cover?
Every dental insurance group plan is different. Even within one company there may be more than one group and the benefits for each group may vary. It is impossible for us to know what is covered for each of our patients. If you have a dental plan through your employer they will have a booklet describing your benefits. If you have not received a booklet from your employer then you should ask for one. If you have trouble at all deciphering your plan then please bring you booklet to us and we can help you to understand your coverage.
3. Do I have to see a specialist to have a root canal done?
Most root canals can be treated in our office. However if there are any complications in a particular case then we will refer to an endodontist. This specialist has more specific equipment and tools to deal with the "not-so-routine" root canal.
