Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Lockport, IL

We’re Here to Answer Your Questions

Got questions after reviewing our website? We can help! Below, you’ll find some of the most common ones we hear for your convenience. Don’t see yours? Call our dental office and we’ll get them addressed.

Will my dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?

Dental benefits do not cover cosmetic procedures in most cases because they are not usually deemed medically necessary. Thankfully, our dental office offers financing through CareCredit so you can make monthly payments, rather than pay for care in one lump sum.

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

Many people don’t realize they should be swapping out their toothbrush at least once every three months or when they get sick. This way, bacteria on the bristles doesn’t accumulate. Need a reminder? Set one on your phone (or replace your brush once the bristles start to fray!)

When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should have their first appointment after a tooth has erupted or by their first birthday. This visit is crucial, so make sure to put it on your calendar.

Do you have special COVID-19 precautions in place?

Our dental office in Lockport has many safety protocols put in place, ensuring your health and safety.

Is orthodontic treatment covered by dental insurance?

This will depend on your specific dental plan. In some instances it may be covered, but in others it won’t be. Call your insurance company and ask them to confirm. Our team will gladly help you navigate other financing options as well.

If I have a toothache, do I need to visit an emergency dentist?

Toothaches can mean an infection is present, yet invisible to the naked eye. If you have an aching tooth that doesn’t go away, call our dental office immediately.
