Frequently Asked Questions
What is a crown and bridge?
A crown and bridge replaces a patient’s missing tooth using a custom-made prosthetic, plus two abutment crowns that are joined to each side of the prosthetic. These crowns are placed over existing teeth on either side of the gap we’re filling to provide your replacement tooth with strength and stability. During a special consultation with Dr. Smith, we can talk to you more about this service and explain how it will help you. Contact our Jeffersonville office to reserve your visit.
Are dental implants right for me?
With dental implants, it’s possible for patients to replace everything from a single missing tooth to a full row of teeth. But as versatile and effective as implants are, this solution isn’t right for everyone. Dr. Smith would be happy to complete a full oral health exam if you’re considering treatment and talk to you about your needs. If implants aren’t right for you, we’ll be more than happy to recommend an alternative solution.
How often should I visit Dr. Smith?
For a truly healthy smile, you should visit our Jeffersonville dental office about every six months. Maintaining regular visits like these will give us an opportunity to clean your teeth and look for any serious issues that require treatment.
Do you offer emergency care?
Yes, we do! We understand how scary it can be to face any kind of emergency, dental or otherwise. But don’t worry—our team is here for you. Give us a call and we’ll talk to you about your needs and set aside time, most likely that same day, when we can see you. Our goal is to help you get your smile back on track as quickly as possible.
Can you help me improve the health of my gums?
With periodontal therapy, we can help you do exactly that. Periodontal disease is a very serious condition that should be treated as quickly as possible to prevent it from becoming a more serious problem. After assessing your needs, our Jeffersonville team will create a personalized treatment plan to help you manage your symptoms and enjoy better health.
