Frequently Asked Dental Questions – San Juan Capistrano, CA
Hear From Your San Juan Capistrano Dentist
When it comes to understanding your oral health, you need a trusted expert who can provide transparent, clear-cut answers to your most important questions. Below you’ll find some common questions asked by our patients. If you don’t see yours listed, contact our dental team.
How often should I visit the dentist?
It is recommended that you see us every six months for a regular checkup and cleaning. Our team can identify signs of decay, infection, and damage in their early stages, making it possible to mitigate the problems. If you are suffering from periodontal disease, however, it may be necessary that you visit us more often to ensure your gums remain free of harmful bacteria.
If my tooth pain goes away on its own, do I need to keep my appointment?
Yes, you should still plan to see us even if your tooth pain disappears. Discomfort is only one of many symptoms that can arise when experiencing a toothache or other common dental injury. You might assume there is no issue if pain is no longer a problem, but if you avoid professional help, you run the risk of developing more serious symptoms.
Why do I need to replace a missing tooth?
Tooth loss not only affects your aesthetics, but it also inhibits your ability to eat and speak. Whether you’re missing one, multiple, or an entire row of teeth, you can begin to experience changes to your facial shape as a result of the deteriorating jawbone. This is why we recommend dental implants to help maintain stimulation and improve smiles.
Will my veneers look natural?
Dr. Omrani is a skilled dentist with years of cosmetic dentistry experience. His ability to place dental veneers and make them look natural and feel comfortable is why so many patients turn to him for help. You can rest assured that he will take great care to ensure the placement of your new teeth so that you can feel confident when looking in the mirror at your new smile.
Is my dental care covered by dental insurance?
The only way to know if your treatment is covered by your dental insurance is to let our team review your policy. We welcome all insurance plans and will work to maximize your benefits and help you save on your out-of-pocket expenses.
What if I’m uninsured? How can I keep my dental care affordable?
We offer our patients two alternative financial solutions – our in-house membership plan and flexible financing. You have the option to enroll in one of our monthly membership plans if you are uninsured, or you can choose to pursue private financing through CareCredit.
