Frequently Asked Questions
Why is your dental office worth the trip?
At Deer Park Family Dentistry, our team makes every effort to help patients feel comfortable, respected, and well taken care of. With three doctors, three hygienists, and several other great professionals on staff, we’re able to welcome smiles at all stages of life with valuable experience and personalized focus that really makes a difference. Visit our About Us and What Sets Us Apart pages to learn more!
How many check-ups and cleanings do I really need a year?
Children and adults alike should be visiting our practice every six months (or twice each year) for an in-depth oral evaluation and hygiene appointment. These visits allow our team to locate any potential concerns or damage at the earliest stages, making treatment much simpler and less invasive. If you suffer from an oversensitivity to tooth decay or periodontal disease, we may suggest more frequent visits in order to keep these conditions better under control.
What are my options for replacing missing teeth?
There are several choices available, and the right one for you will depend on several personal factors, including budget, schedule, and aesthetic preferences. Dental implants are most often recommended by our doctors because of their lifelike structure, revitalizing health benefits, and truly seamless appearance. However, the time commitment and cost involved is not ideal for everyone. Alternatively, dental bridges can provide much-needed sturdiness, while traditional dentures are convenient and cost-effective. Dr. Jane or Dr. Peck can sit down with you and discuss these options with you in greater detail during a consultation.
I want to improve the way my smile looks. What can you do for me?
We love providing customized smile makeovers for our patients from Deer Park, TX and surrounding areas! In-office and take-home whitening options can erase unsightly stains and discoloration, while porcelain veneers are a great choice for hiding several flaws altogether behind a new, pristinely beautiful look. Tooth-colored fillings are also available for patients with cavities who are looking for a cosmetic alternative to traditional amalgam.
Dental care makes me anxious. Can you help?
Yes! Negative emotions related to dental care are very common, and we understand that they can often keep you from pursuing the treatment your smile needs. With sedation dentistry at Deer Park Family Dentistry, patients can enjoy a much more relaxing experience overall. Both the milder nitrous oxide (perfect for patients who need to get back to their busy day right away after treatment) and the more moderate oral conscious sedation are available – we’ll be happy to make a recommendation after learning about you and your personal needs.
Do you see emergency cases?
We sure do. Our dentists will make every effort to provide emergency dentistry as soon as possible, and our staff members can offer valuable guidance over the phone as well when needed.
Do you take my insurance?
Our practice is an in-network provider with Delta Dental Premier, and our team will gladly file paperwork for any other PPO plan on your behalf so that your available benefits are maximized. Please visit our Patient Resources page to learn more.
