Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Glendale, AZ

Answering All of Your Dental Questions

Do you have questions about any of the treatments that we offer? Have you been wondering whether there’s a dental treatment out there that can provide you with the results you want? Our team is here to help answer all of your dental-related questions. Below, we’ve compiled a list of the most common questions that we receive from our patients. If you don’t see the answers you’re looking for, feel free to call us!

Does dental insurance cover dental implants?

Unfortunately, it’s rarely the case that dental insurance plans will cover the cost of dental implants. However, that doesn’t stop our team from trying to get certain aspects of your procedure covered! In some cases, benefits have extended to pay for the restoration, sedation, or other parts of the process. If you would like to learn more about additional financing to pay for your treatment, let us know, and we can talk you through applying for CareCredit!

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Not everybody is a good candidate for dental implant the same day they come in for their consultation. In fact, some patients require preparatory treatments to make sure that the procedure is successful, like bone grafts, periodontal therapy, or sinus lifts. During your initial consultation, we’ll examine your mouth and walk you through some requirements that we have before you can go into surgery and move forward with the process.

How many times a year do I need to visit my dentist?

Our team, along with the American Dental Association, recommends visiting the dentist twice a year for a checkup and cleaning to ensure the health of your teeth and gums.

Can I sign up for the Dental Membership Plan and receive discounts the same day?

Yes! As long as you sign up for our Dental Membership Plan the same day you receive treatment, any applicable discounts will be applied to your treatment.

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

It’s recommended that you change out your toothbrush once every three months to prevent the accumulation of harmful oral bacteria. You should also get a new toothbrush after you’ve gotten over being sick or if you notice that the bristles are beginning to fray.

What is Biomimetic Dentistry?

Biomimetic Dentistry is a philosophy that Dr. Upton practices by. It’s a treatment approach that acts to preserve the structure and function of the natural tooth by any means possible. It’s a more conservative and wholistic approach to dentistry that’s made to keep your smile as natural as possible.

I have dental anxiety. Do you offer sedation?

Yes! Our team offers nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation for patients who experience mild, moderate, or severe dental anxiety or fear. To find out more, please call our office and speak with one of our staff members.
