Frequently Asked Dental Questions
Have a question about your dental care? You’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked dental questions we receive every day below, but if there is anything else you’d like to know regarding your oral health or treatment options, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
When should I get a checkup and cleaning?
We recommend that patients of all ages should get a checkup and cleaning at least twice a year. If someone doesn’t have any issues with their teeth, these services will keep it that way. However, if decay or damage is present, regular appointments allow us to catch it early and treat it quickly.
I’m really scared of the dentist. Can you help?
Yes, our dental office is well-known for helping nervous patients feel nice and relaxed. We have a very friendly team and offer a selection of sedation options that can be tailored to your specific comfort level. You can give us a call to learn more, or you can even schedule a FREE in-person consultation.
Which type of dental sedation is right for me?
This really depends on your level of dental anxiety, what type of care you need, and if you have any other medical concerns. We’d be happy to go over your options either over the phone or during a FREE in-person consultation. Just know, no matter your situation, we’ll be able to find the right kind of sedation for you!
Can my child use dental sedation?
Yes! Nitrous oxide sedation is gentle and safe, and we use it to help younger patients all the time. It’s perfect for keeping nervous children calm during their appointments, and better yet, it has no lingering effects, meaning your child will be able to quickly resume their normal routine after their visit. Contact us today to learn more about our sedation options.
Should I get a bridge, denture, or dental implants to replace my missing teeth?
Dr. Kapers is Valparaiso’s local dental implant expert, and he would highly recommend them to any patient who is interested in replacing their missing teeth. Unlike other options, implants actually bring back an entire tooth, making them extremely stable, durable, and lifelike in appearance. Dr. Kapers can perform the whole procedure from beginning to end to help patients save time as well. You can learn more about implants and what they could do for you at a FREE in-person consultation.
Will you take my dental insurance?
Yes! We are in-network with many popular PPO insurance providers and can work with most out-of-network plans as well. Give us a call to learn how we can use your particular policy at your next appointment.
I don’t have insurance. Can I finance my dental care?
Yes. You can quickly sign-up for third-party financing with CareCredit through our website. They have already helped countless patients without insurance easily afford their care with us, and you can learn more by following the link on our For Patients page.
