Ask Your Conroe Dentist
If you have a dental-related question, you don’t need to search for the answer online—you can just give our team a call! We’re always willing to take the time to answer your questions so you can know as much as possible about taking great care of your smile. Below, we’ve gone ahead and responded to some of the most common questions we hear every day.
How often should I see a dentist?
At least twice a year. With two checkups and cleanings, our team is able to catch the early signs of issues before they can cause serious damage, plus we can remove plaque and tartar buildup in your mouth to prevent cavities from developing in the first place.
Should I use an electric or manual toothbrush?
If you have decent oral health, then there is no need to switch your brush! Both types are effective at lowering someone’s risk of decay—the most important factor is that you brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day. However, for children and those with mobility issues, electric brushes tend to make oral hygiene a bit easier.
Is flossing really that important?
Yes! When you don’t floss, you leave about 40% of your teeth’s surfaces unclean, which dramatically increases the chances of decay and cavities. You only need to floss once in the evening, and this extra minute can save you a lot of headaches and time spent in the dental chair down the line.
Do you see children?
Yes, Conroe Advanced Dentistry is able to see child patients. Our team knows how to keep little ones perfectly calm, and we offer a selection of child-centric services. If your child has more advanced dental needs, then we can refer them to a great pediatric dentist in the area.
How long will it take to fix my tooth?
It depends on the type and extent of the damage. A small cavity can usually be remedied with a tooth-colored filling in a single appointment, while a severely broken or decayed tooth may require two appointments to be topped with a custom-made crown.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
Yes, Conroe Advanced Dentistry is able to accept all PPO dental insurance plans, and we’ll even file the claims for you. If you have questions regarding your coverage and what you’ll be expected to pay on the day of your visit, just give us a call.
