Can you help with my fear of the dentist?
Yes, we can! Many of our longtime patients were once anxious just like you. Our compassionate staff and Dr. Fester’s gentle approach will help set you at ease. You’ll see that we’re different as soon as you walk through the door.
We offer a variety of comforting amenities like pillows, cozy blankets, sunglasses for eye protection, and even longer appointment times if needed.
Why is it necessary to go to the dentist for checkups so often?
Dr. Fester recommends that our patients schedule regular dental cleanings and exams every six months. Some patients, especially those who have suffered from gum disease, may need to visit us more often.
Frequent checkups help us keep your smile healthy and bright. Regular cleanings eliminate disease-causing bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your teeth, helping prevent bigger dental headaches and expense.
Plus, as part of your exam we’ll check for cavities, bite problems, oral cancer, TMJ issues, and orthodontic problems. Early detection and treatment of any of these problems help ensure they can be handled quickly and effectively.
What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?
We understand that missing teeth can make life difficult for our patients. That’s why we offer several different ways to replace those teeth. Your unique situation and needs will determine the best way to treat your case.
Some treatment options we have include fixed bridges and conventional dentures. In addition, dental implants give us even more options for teeth replacement, including implant-secured crowns, bridges, and dentures. Plus, implants will stimulate your jawbone and help keep it healthy and intact, unlike standard bridges and dentures.
