Another happy (if you can even use that term when referring to a dental appointment!) visit with Jenn Silver and her crew. I have NEVER felt so comfortable at a dentist in my entire life. Everyone, from reception to the hygienist, is wonderful. And best of all, in my particular circumstance, Jenn and her team were able to provide a lower cost alternative for what could have been an expensive problem.

FAQs

Most dentists are “general” practitioners. That is, they provide comprehensive oral care to people of all ages. However, if there’s an extenuating circumstance where extra technology or resources are needed to treat a certain condition, dental specialists are able to provide additional support. The most common types of specialists include:

  • Endodontists
  • Orthodontists
  • Oral surgeons
  • Periodontists

Fortunately, general dentists like the ones at our family practice in Calgary are able to provide routine treatments ranging from cleanings to root canals all under one roof.

Dentists are oral health providers who focus on preventative, therapeutic, and restorative treatment for your teeth and the surrounding tissues (including gums and bone). They’re also able to prescribe medications, screen for diseases, refer to other types of specialists, and perform biopsies.

When you have a health problem related to your mouth, you would want to see a dentist instead of a traditional medical doctor. Although the mouth and body are closely related, medical facilities are typically not set up to provide dental-specific types of care.

Dentists also offer treatments related to cosmetic procedures, TMJ treatments, orthodontic therapy, certain types of (oral) surgery, growth modification, and so much more! If you have sleep apnea, you can also see a dentist who is trained in sleep medicine to provide an oral sleep appliance.

Some of our most common dental services include checkups, cleanings, X-rays, gum disease treatment, tooth extractions, fillings, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. If you require any specific type of care, we’ll review the treatment options available so that you can play a key part in your care planning process.

How often you should go to the dentist will depend on your medical and dental health. Routine dental care is recommended every 6-12 months for cleanings and a check-up. If you have additional dental needs, or you are high risk for decay and gum disease, 3-4 month appointment intervals may be recommended.

Both general dentists and cosmetic dentists offer all types of dental services. However, the difference between a cosmetic and general dentist is that cosmetic dentists focus their expertise and technique on cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, dental veneers, composite bonding, tooth recontouring, and even short-term braces.

Essentially, cosmetic dental procedures are used to enhance your smile’s appearance rather than treat specific issues like decay. But if you do have a tooth that needs to be repaired, we can use cosmetic materials to design a crown or filling that blends in and makes your smile look whole again.

If you’re considering a cosmetic treatment, contact us to schedule a consultation. We can help you create a plan that optimizes your natural characteristics and reduces the need for extra treatment in the future.

Dental care costs vary depending on where you live, the type of dentist that you’re seeing, your age, and if you have dental insurance. For instance, a checkup and cleaning for a child is usually priced lower than that for an adult.

What most people don’t realize is that paying out of pocket (without insurance) for preventative services that help to reduce the risk of oral disease is more affordable than avoiding dental checkups and only seeing a dentist when there’s a problem. Issues such as tooth decay are best prevented, not just because it’s cheaper, but because it’s healthier for your smile longterm.

If for any reason you need a specific treatment, we’ll review all of the costs with you well in advance. That way you’re never caught off guard by the price of dental care! If other options are available, we’ll review them with you so that you know what other choices there are. If you’re enrolled in an insurance plan, be sure to bring a copy of your card to your next visit!

Dental procedures are categorized into different service areas. For example, “cosmetic”, “preventative”, “restorative”, or even “major.” These labels affect how your treatment is filed toward insurance and how your benefits cover them.

Preventative treatments include:

  • Regular six-month dental checkups
  • Exams
  • Cleaning
  • X-rays
  • Other services like fluoride treatment or sealants

Each one plays a key role in preventing and intercepting disease as early as possible so that you don’t need serious dental work later on.

Elective procedures include:

This doesn’t mean cosmetic approaches to care don’t also include restorative fillings and crowns.

Major treatments often encompass things like:

More often than not, major treatments are the last solution available for stabilizing your oral health. Each dental procedure is used alongside the rest to help create a healthy, harmonious smile.

Yes, you can absolutely see a dentist without insurance! Dental insurance is a nice benefit to have, but it’s not required to see a dentist if you require services. In fact, paying to see a dentist every six months for routine preventative care can help you limit the amount of dental care costs in the future! Since most dental problems are preventable, regular checkups are a smart investment to make. If you add dental insurance at any time, just be sure to bring a copy of your card to your next visit. That way we can file claims on your behalf and limit any out of pocket expenses.

Understanding the price of dental care and the different types of treatment options available can help you stay in your budget and keep expenses to a minimum. If you require any type of therapeutic or restorative care, our team will review all of the options available with you so that you can make an educated decision about your smile’s future. For more information about the cost of dental treatments without insurance, be sure to give our office a call!
