Q: Do I really need to see you for cleanings if I brush and floss every day?
Yes! No matter how well you practice at-home dental care, there are some things you can only have done in a dental office. We use special tools to remove tartar from your teeth and polish them, and our preventive fluoride and sealants treatments aren’t available at your local drugstore. Not to mention our dentists can detect cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer in their early and easy-to-treat stages.
Q: Does a smile creation hurt?
Absolutely not! Few cosmetic dentistry procedures are capable of causing you pain, and we’ll always numb you before anything that possibly could. We’re firm believers in making sure you’re comfortable before, during, and after any dental treatment we offer.
Q: Should I get dentures or dental implants?
That depends on a few factors. Your jawbone’s structure, for one, but also your goals and your budget. There are benefits to both. In fact, you can get both with implants combined with fixed dentures! The best way to find out what would work for you is a consultation with Dr. Finley. Call us at 318-302-4236 to schedule yours.
Q: Why does it matter that you place and restore dental implants?
Dental implant placement requires an expert to carefully attach artificial tooth roots made of titanium to your jawbone. We then restore them using dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Having both procedures done in one office by the same dentist means you will get a consistent level of care with no gaps in communication.
