Q: What Are Dental Implants??
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that are designed to effectively replace your missing teeth. Ours are created out of titanium, a material that has been proven to have natural bonding properties. At our Gillette, WY dentist’s office, your implant will be surgically placed directly into your gum by Dr. Porter and allowed to fuse to your jawbone. This fusion creates a strong, sturdy foundation for a replacement crown or other restoration!
Q: Will My Dental Insurance Cover My Appointment??
Most dental insurance policies will cover up to two professional teeth cleanings and oral exams per calendar year. That said, it is always best to check in advance. We’d be happy to verify your benefits if you call our Gillette, WY dentist’s office at 307-622-1311 to schedule your next preventive dentistry appointment.
Q: What is the best toothbrush to use?
The best toothbrush to use is one that fits your mouth! This usually means a brush that has a small head and soft bristles. This type of brush will best be able to reach all of the nooks and crannies where bacteria may be hiding. It is also important to floss! Flossing dislodges debris that your toothbrush can’t reach. For more advice on home hygiene, please speak with our team.
Q: When should my child visit the dentist for the first time?
At Synergy Dental Center, we treat patients of all ages! We recommend taking your child to see the dentist for the first time as an infant so we can check for any lip or tongue tie which will affect facial and dental development down the road. We also recommend regular checkups throughout your child’s lifetime to help maintain great oral health. Learn more about our pediatric dental care by visiting our individual service page.
Q: Why are regular dental visits so important?
Visiting the dentist on a regular basis (we recommend every six months) is important because it is the only way to prevent major instances of disease and decay. While you will notice large issues when they crop up, we can diagnose and treat dental issues while they are still small. This will save you time, discomfort, and money in the long run! If you are overdue for a visit, please schedule one by contacting our office.
Q: I have frequent headaches or migraines. How can you help?
If you are suffering from frequent headaches or migraines, something is wrong. We offer treatment for TMJ-related issues that can help alleviate your pain and allow you to get back to your normal life. We know that these headaches can be debilitating. That’s why we offer a specialized treatment option called TruDenta. Learn more by visiting our page on Migraine and Headache Solutions.
