Dr. Wallin and our staff understand that our patients need good information to make the best dental care decisions. That’s why we’ve listed a few Longmont, CO dental questions we often get at Silver Leaf Dentistry, along with their answers. Feel free to call us at 720-504-2539 if your question isn’t listed or if you need to make an appointment.
Q: Do You Treat Dental Emergencies in Longmont?
Yes, we absolutely do! Call us when you are in pain, and we will get you into the office as soon as possible. Once you’re here, you can relax with our many comfort amenities like warm blankets, pillows, and headphones. We’ll get you out of pain and back to normal dental function. Call us at the first sign of trouble.
Q: What Should I Do During a Toothache?
A toothache is troublesome for many reasons. Aside from the pain, it is often difficult to eat the foods you love, sleep comfortably, or function throughout the day. We can help. While still at home, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever or rinse your mouth with a saltwater solution. Call our office to schedule an emergency appointment and we’ll help you out of pain as soon as possible.
Q: How should I prepare for my dentist appointment during Coronavirus?
There are several things you should do before visiting your dentist or any other medical professional. First, understand that we may not be able to see you due to office restrictions and government regulations. We will get you to the office as soon as possible! Second, if you are showing any signs of illness or have exposed to COVID-19, it’s imperative that you stay at home and reschedule your visit. Finally, be prepared to take extra precautions when you are at our office, such as completing a pre-screening, wearing a mask during part of your visit, and more. If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call for more information.
Q: Why should people visit the dentist every six months?
While you can have a dental emergency, common problems like cavities or gum disease take time to start hurting your smile. And even if you brush and floss regularly, only a trained dentist like Dr. Wallin has the tools and technology needed to identify such problems before they get bad. By making an appointment every six months, you can better protect your teeth and gums.
Q: Is Root Canal Therapy As Painful As I Fear?
That might have been true a long time ago, but modern root canals are different. Not only will the tooth and surrounding area become numb thanks to local anesthesia, Dr. Wallin has extensive experience in using this treatment. In fact, root canal therapy removes bacteria causing toothaches, so this actually relieves tooth pain!
Q: Do you have any specials right now?
We’re currently offering several promotions to make comprehensive smile care more accessible to Longmont families. Our New Patient Special is a fantastic way to get acquainted with our high level of patient care. For only $89, you’ll receive a full dental exam, teeth cleaning, and set of X-rays.
Besides our Dental Implant Package and free consultations for implants and Invisalign, you can also take advantage of complimentary second opinions on all of our other services. We’ll examine your mouth and provide you with a professional assessment of your oral health needs – completely free!
Q: What kinds of cosmetic dentistry do you have available?
Our cosmetic dental options offer you many fantastic ways to unlock a beautiful new smile. Whether you just want to whiten your teeth or you need a total smile makeover, we can help.
Dental veneers and tooth bonding offer you two ways to repair smile flaws like chips, gaps, stains, and worn teeth. Invisalign orthodontics will straighten your teeth in around 12 months without brackets and wires. These clear teeth aligners deliver discreet and comfortable treatment without the embarrassment of metal braces. Plus, we offer free Invisalign consultations!
Dr. Wallin can also improve your smile using our gum treatments. Gum reshaping will allow more of your teeth to show when smiling, and gum recession treatment will restore your gums and help them heal.
Q: Are dental implants a good way to replace my missing teeth?
Yes, they are! Pairing Dr. Wallin’s skill with some of the latest dental tools available means that we can both place and restore your new implants. A crown, bridge, or dentures secured to implants will fill in smile gaps and help make biting and chewing easier.
You’ll want to find out if you’re a good candidate for our special Dental Implant Package. You can replace one missing tooth with a new implant, abutment, and porcelain crown for only $2,500 – half the normal investment for this service! Call us today for a complimentary implants consultation.
Plus, you’ll always receive a 5 percent cash discount when you pay for your treatment in full before your appointment.
