- Can I Get Dental Implants in Highland Heights? A:
Dr. James D. Theiss will assess you with advanced tools like 3D imaging to determine whether you can receive implants, but you likely can. Dr. Theiss both places and restores dental implants, so you can get your entire procedure in our office. We offer many types of implants, from single tooth replacement with a dental crown to dental implant dentures. If your jaw is too thin to support implants, Dr. Theiss may be able to use mini dental implants or perform a bone graft to strengthen your jaw.
- Do You Have Options for Financing Dental Care? A:
We’re a registered provider for CareCredit, a company that provides flexible financing for health care, including dental services. It offers many different financing plans, including low-interest and no-interest options. With CareCredit, you won’t need to provide any money upfront for your services.
- How Often Should I See You for Dental Exams? A:
We suggest visiting our office every six months for dental exams and professional dental cleanings. If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease, you’ll require more frequent cleanings, every three months. During exams we’ll check your mouth for small problems so we can prevent them from becoming larger ones. We’ll also provide preventive care that can help prevent cavities and gum disease.
- What Are My Options for Covering Smile Flaws? A:
You have several choices for hiding imperfections like cracks, chips, and stains. Depending on the extent of your issues, Dr. Theiss may recommend tooth bonding, dental veneers, or dental crowns. With so many options, you’ll be able to find one that suits your lifestyle and your budget. You may even want to consider other cosmetic dentistry and/or restorative dentistry options for a total smile makeover.
- Can You Remove Wisdom Teeth? A:
Dr. Theiss can perform most tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth. If your teeth are impacted, he may refer you to an oral surgeon for their removal. Using tools like an intraoral camera and 3D imaging, he’ll be able to identify impaction and other potential problems before an extraction.
- Do Clear Aligners Really Work? A:
Clear aligners fit comfortably over teeth to give you the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. The best part is that they work more quickly than standard braces and can be removed to eat, brush, and floss!
