Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Midlothian, TX

Answers To Your Dental Questions

There is a lot to know when it comes to dentistry, so we completely understand if you have questions! Below, you’ll find our responses to some of the most frequently asked dental questions we get every day, but if there is anything else you’d like to ask, don’t hesitate to give us a call. There are no silly questions with us, and remember, the more you know, the healthier your teeth will probably be!

How often should I go to the dentist?

This answer will be different from patient to patient, but in general, a person should get a checkup and cleaning at least twice a year. These routine appointments give our team the chance to remove plaque and tartar from those hard to reach areas of your mouth before they cause cavities, plus we’ll be able to catch any potential issues early so we can treat them before they lead to pain or damage.

What is holistic dentistry?

“Holistic dentistry” is an approach to dental care that takes into account the entire body while treating the teeth and gums. Often, the condition of the mouth directly influences someone’s overall wellbeing, and the reverse is true as well. That’s why we only use non-toxic, additive-free materials here at Legacy Dentistry, and we also strive to be as conservative as possible with our treatment. This helps us give you much more than just a healthy smile!

Can I bring my child to Legacy Dentistry?

Yes, we’re able to start seeing children starting at three years old. As a proud father of two himself, Dr. Nguyen knows exactly how to keep younger patients comfortable while providing the comprehensive care that they need. He’ll also work to teach your child healthy habits that will serve them well into adulthood.

Does getting dental implants hurt?

Not when Dr. Nguyen does it! Thanks to his gentle touch and use of the latest techniques and sedation, our implant patients describe feeling next to nothing during the placement procedure. A little swelling and bleeding in the treatment area are common afterward, but these symptoms are usually minor, go away quickly, and can be managed with OTC medication.

What is Invisalign?

Will you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, Legacy Dentistry accepts all PPO dental insurance plans and works to help our patients save as much as possible with their policies. If you have dental insurance, give us a call ahead of your appointment so we can verify your benefits and let you know what is and isn’t covered.
