Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to dental care, people usually have a lot of questions, and the team at Sierra Dental Care is always happy to answer them! Below, we’ve compiled some of the most popular questions that we receive every day. After looking over this page, if you still have a question for us, be sure to give us a call and just ask! No question is too small, and we’re always glad to have a chance to talk with you.
How often should I visit the dentist?
Dr. Haddad recommends that patients of all ages should attend at least two dental appointments every year for a checkup and cleaning. These preventive services will enable him to catch and treat any cavities or gum disease as early as possible, and professional cleanings can stop many minor problems from developing in the first place.
Can I bring my child to Sierra Dental Care?
Yes! We’re happy to treat your entire family under one roof, and that includes any little smiles you might have at home. We have a number of services specially designed to treat growing smiles, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments. As a father of two himself, Dr. Haddad loves having children around the office and teaching them about the importance of dental care.
When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?
Your child should visit the dentist as soon as their first tooth appears or no later than their first birthday. This first appointment will give Dr. Haddad the chance to make sure that your child’s teeth are developing correctly, plus he can start introducing them to dental care and help them feel comfortable in the office, making future visits much easier.
How should I replace my missing teeth?
While we offer a multitude of treatments that can fill in the gaps in someone’s smile, our first recommendation is usually dental implants. They simply offer the most complete, natural-looking, and longest-lasting solution compared to any other treatment, and we’re one of the few offices in the area where you can have the entire procedure completed in the same location. You can learn more about why they are so special by visiting our dental implants page.
I just want my smile to look better. Can you help?
Yes! We offer a full range of cosmetic services that are specifically designed to make the smile look more beautiful. We can whiten your teeth, make them appear straighter, and even give you a complete makeover with porcelain veneers. Whether you want a minor touch-up or dramatic transformation, we have the services and artistic touch to make it happen!
Will you accept my insurance?
Yes-- we accept practically all PPO dental insurance plans, and we’re even in-network providers for Delta Dental and MetLife. We’ll be happy to go over your benefits with you and even file your claims to make using your coverage nice and easy. To learn how we can use your insurance to help you save at your next appointment, give us a call today.
