How often should I visit my dentist?
Dr. Gary Klein, along with the American Dental Association, recommends that patients of all ages should visit their dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. This will allow our team to clean those areas in your mouth that you simply can’t reach at home, plus it will let Dr. Klein catch and treat small dental issues before they can turn into real problems.
Can you fixed my broken/decayed teeth?
We can! Dr. Klein can use traditional crowns and bridges to repair broken/damaged teeth and even replace missing teeth. If you’re dealing with a compromised smile, you don’t have to, so be sure to come see us today!
Can you replace my missing teeth?
Yes, and we actually have a few different ways we can do it. Depending on your tooth loss, we can use long-trusted treatments such as bridges and dentures, but for a more permanent solution, we may suggest dental implants. Dental implants are a much more thorough approach to tooth replacement because they actually rebuild the tooth from the root up. They even provide the best results when it comes to security, longevity, AND aesthetics with just one treatment.
I have dentures, but they are very uncomfortable. Can you help?
Yes, we can provide you with something called an implant-retained denture. In fact, we can even perform a procedure known as All-On-4, in which only 4 dental implant posts are needed to support a full denture. With this, we can place and restore the implants in just one visit! Thanks to the implants, these dentures will never slip, they’ll maintain their fit for much longer, and you’ll have a much stronger bite as well.
Can you do something about my yellow teeth?
We offer professional-grade teeth whitening, and you can choose to have a complete treatment performed at our office or use a custom-made take-home kit. We use Kor Whitening for both systems, which is much stronger and more thorough than any whitening treatment you can currently buy at the store.
How can a dentist treat sleep apnea?
One of the most effective and affordable treatments for sleep apnea is called oral appliance therapy, and you can only get it from a specially trained sleep dentist. For this, Dr. Klein will design a custom-made mouthguard that you would wear to bed every night. It would prevent your airway from becoming blocked and help you finally get the sleep you need. Nearly 95% of the people who regularly use oral appliance therapy have seen an increase in their sleep quality.
Will you take my dental insurance?
Our practice is currently in-network with Delta Dental, United Concordia, Aetna, and Cigna. If you have a plan that isn’t on this list, simply call us today and we can discuss your coverage.
