Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Westborough, MA

Answers to Common Inquiries

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff members are ready to answer any questions you may have about our dental office and how we approach care. But we also recognize that sometimes it is more convenient to find information online. That is why we have put together the following list of FAQs, along with their answers. We hope they will give you a better idea of why dental care is so important and how we strive to provide the best possible service to our patients.

Do You Accept My Insurance?

We welcome PPO dental insurance plans, and we are even in-network with many major providers. If we are not in your plan’s network, you may still be able to use your benefits here. Please call us to learn how we can help you maximize your policy.

What Is the Best Way to Treat Tooth Loss?

Tooth loss is a common problem, and modern dentistry offers numerous solutions. We usually recommend dental implants as the best option because they rebuild missing teeth from the roots up. They are extremely sturdy and natural feeling. However, some patients opt for a traditional bridge or denture instead.

Going to the Dentist Makes Me Nervous. How Can You Help?

Do not hesitate to let us know if you experience a degree of dental anxiety. When we understand your situation, we can take extra care to be gentle and explain exactly what we are doing during your treatment. We also offer sedation, which can help you stay relaxed and may even make you forget your procedure entirely.

How Much Does a Checkup and Cleaning Cost?

Our prices are in-line with standard fees that you would expect at most dental offices. However, many patients pay less than the standard fee. For example, if you have insurance, you might not have to pay anything out of pocket for a cleaning and exam. If you sign up for the Essential Dental Plan, exams are free and cleanings are provided at a significant discount.

How Important Are Regular Dental Visits?

Regular dental visits are vital because they allow us to diagnose and treat oral health problems as soon as possible. Early diagnosis often makes the difference between being able to save a tooth and having to extract it. Routine appointments can also help you save money on restorative care.

Do You Accept Children as Patients?

Yes, we welcome entire families as patients and offer some services that are particularly useful for young ones, such as sealants. Our team even has the training and gentle touch that is required to treat special needs children.
