Frequently Asked Dental Questions - Tyler, TX

Quick Answers for
Important Questions

When it comes to your oral health, knowledge is always power, which is why we take the time to answer every question our patients send our way. If there is something you’d like to ask regarding our dental office or your treatment options, feel free to give us a call anytime. Before that, you’ll find answers to many of our most frequently asked dental questions below.

How often should I go to the dentist?

In general, Dr. Perez recommends that everyone, regardless of age, should get a checkup and cleaning at least twice a year. These appointments enable our team to stop common problems or treat them as early as possible to keep your mouth healthy and your dental costs low!

When should my child start visiting the dentist?

A child should start getting regular checkups and cleanings just like Mom and Dad starting around age 2-3. These early-age appointments will not only help keep a child safe from cavities, but it will also show them the value of oral health and how to take care of their growing smile at home.

I have a toothache! What should I do?

First, rinse and floss around the tooth to make sure there isn’t any food caught between your teeth. Does it still hurt? If so, then you should call us right away. Even a minor toothache could be a sign of a serious infection or crack in the enamel.

Is it possible to straighten my teeth without metal braces?

Yes! With Invisalign, Dr. Perez can correct crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth using virtually-invisible mouth trays that no one will be able to see while you’re wearing them. Or, with Six Month Smiles, low-profile brackets and tooth-colored wires can be used to shift only the teeth that show when you smile, helping you dramatically improve your appearance much faster than traditional braces.

I’m unhappy with how my smile looks. Which treatment should I get?

Dr. Perez can use Virtual Smile Design to give you a preview of what you’d look like after getting a cosmetic procedure so you can figure out which one would be right for you. This allows you to design your perfect look and guarantee fantastic results before we ever do anything to your teeth!

Will you take my dental insurance?

Most likely yes! We accept many, many PPO dental insurance plans, and we always go the extra mile to ensure our patients are maximizing their benefits. To learn more about how we could use your plan at your next appointment, give us a call today.

I don’t have dental insurance. Is there another way I can save on my care?

Yes! You can sign up for our In-House Dental Plan. With it, you’ll enjoy many of the same benefits as traditional insurance after just paying one low flat fee. It covers your checkups and cleanings for the entire year and provides discounts on many other treatments as well. Plus, it doesn’t have any annoying deductibles, waiting periods, or yearly maximums! Give us a call today to learn more and sign up.
