Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Lake Zurich, IL

Learn More About Our Dental Office

Even after reviewing our website, you might still have some questions about our services. You’ll find some of the most common questions we’ve received listed on this page, along with thoughtful, helpful answers. Please call us if you have any additional concerns.

Will my dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?

Most of the time, dental insurance won’t offer any coverage for any elective procedure that does not have oral health benefits. However, you can still apply for CareCredit financing in order to break the cost of a cosmetic treatment into more manageable monthly chunks.

Do you have a children’s dentist on staff?

Yes, we do have a pediatric dentist at our dental office, and thanks to their education and experience, they can work with all children – from the youngest infants to the oldest teens.

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

The general rule is to get a new toothbrush every three or four months so that you don’t have to risk bacteria building up in the bristles. You should also get a new toothbrush immediately if you’ve recently recovered from an illness, as germs could be left behind on the old one.

When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the first appointment should be before your child’s first birthday. Taking the initiative in guiding your child’s oral development can make all the difference in the long run.

Do you have special COVID-19 precautions in place?

In accordance with our dedication to patient health and safety, we’ve adopted a number of new protocols for your regular appointments.

Is orthodontic treatment covered by dental insurance?

In many cases it is, but every dental plan is different. You’ll need to double-check your benefits to see what is or isn’t covered. If you have any doubts, contact your insurance company directly.

If I have a toothache, do I need to visit an emergency dentist?

Since toothaches are often associated with dental infections, it’s best to have an appointment as soon as you can so that we can determine the root cause of the pain and the best course of treatment.
