GET ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
Every day, we talk to many patients over the phone and in our office. We’ve been asked a lot of questions, and we want to answer all of them as clearly as possible. That’s why we’ve provided our responses to some of the most commonly asked questions below. If you have others, feel free to call us and ask.
How often do I need to visit the dentist?
We strongly recommend at least two dental visits per year. At these appointments, Dr. Albrecht will check to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Many problems start out small and difficult to spot to the untrained eye, but our team can identify issues early on while they are small, sparing you the trouble of more intensive treatment later on. We’ll also clean your teeth, preventing decay and other problems in the future.
Do you treat children?
Of course! We welcome patients of all ages, including small children. Our caring team will be gentle and kind to your little one, and we will do everything we can to create a comfortable environment. We’ll even take the time to teach the importance of dental health in terms they understand so that they can enjoy good oral health for many years to come.
I want to straighten my teeth, but I don’t want metal braces. What can I do?
You can learn more about Invisalign! This system uses clear, plastic aligners to subtly move your teeth into alignment. Not only is Invisalign less noticeable, but it actually tends to work more quickly than traditional braces. Instead of two or three years, you may only need to wear Invisalign for 12 to 18 months!
Do I need to see a specialist for dental implants placement?
Nope! We handle the entire dental implant process in-house. Dr. Albrecht uses a 3D cone beam scanner to meticulously plan out the placement procedure and has the training to ensure a successful outcome.
What procedures can give me a more attractive smile?
Depending on what your smile goals are, we offer several services that can make your dream smile a reality, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and more! The best way to know which procedure(s) can best meet your needs is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Albrecht.
Do you accept my dental insurance?
Yes, we do! We gladly work with your insurance provider to keep your dental healthcare costs as low as possible. We are also in-network with many companies, potentially saving you even more! To ask which insurances we accept, just give us a call.
