Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

If you have any questions or concerns about your oral health or overall dental care, the most convenient way to get the answers you’re looking for is by phone call. One of our team members will be more than happy to help give you the information you want. However, not everyone’s schedule will be the same, as some may be busier than most. That’s okay! To help make it easier for you, our team has gathered some of our most frequently asked questions from patients in Newbury Park.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

The best place for you to undergo dental treatment will always be comprised of the various things you find important to you. These factors can typically be a mixture of stuff like how far from you the office is, how tidy the practice is, insurance/payment and fees, credentials, and the hours of operation. It’s important that you know what kind of dental care you’re needing or are interested in. Do you want to straighten your smile with traditional braces or Invisalign? Are you interested in enhancing your teeth with teeth whitening or veneers? Is it simply that time of year to get your dental checkup and cleaning?

Of course, you’ll also want to get to know how the dental team works with their patients. Do they offer one-on-one approaches for every patient? Fortunately, our team at Paraiso Family Dental & Orthodontics offers completely customized treatment plans, that way every procedure is tailored specifically for each patient’s unique grin. You can also read the team and doctor bios on the practice’s website so you can get a better understanding of their backgrounds and credentials.

What Is the Best Way to Find a Cosmetic Dentist?

Remember that there is no single designation that claims a dentist is a cosmetic dentist. Even so, various organizations provide extensive education on cosmetic dental procedures, meaning you’ll want to find a dentist who’s undergone this kind of training if you’re considering improving your pearly whites. The great news is that Dr. Gary Chaffee is a member of several prestigious organizations, including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)—one of the highest-profile organizations for cosmetic dental treatments in the United States. He’s also a Certified Invisalign Provider, meaning you can be sure to receive high-quality care for either enhancing your teeth or straightening your smile.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Never forget that dentistry is primarily about prevention. This means that the best way for you to save money on dental care is to practice great oral hygiene every day and visit your dentist biannually for checkups and cleanings. By maintaining a clean and healthy smile, you won’t have to worry as much about developing serious complications later on that could cost much more to treat.

If you can’t pay everything out of pocket, then you’ll want to make the most of your dental insurance coverage if you have any. Speak with your provider or our knowledgeable team so that you know the details of your plan and benefits. If you aren’t currently covered by insurance, you might consider signing up for financing through CareCredit, which offers plans that turn the cost of your treatment into monthly installments with little to no interest! Don’t hesitate to call our office to learn more about your financial options.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

If there’s an urgent dental situation, call our office right away so we can pencil you in for emergency treatment. For more serious conditions, like a dislocated/broken jaw, trouble breathing/swallowing, or excessive bleeding, call 911 instead and/or visit your local ER. They can help stabilize you before you come to get dental care from us. Our office welcomes same-day appointments as well as evening hours so that you have a good chance of getting the care you need when you need it. Don’t forget that emergencies are often signs of bigger problems that can be addressed early on with regular dental checkups and cleanings, so be sure to visit your dentist every six months or sooner to help you prevent future complications.
