FAQs – Pain Free Dental Procedures
How often should I visit the dentist?
Every individual is different and so are their teeth. It is advised to have a regular checkup and clean every 6 months to ensure the best results each trip and to prevent any major dental issues down the track. However there are other factors to consider when making your appointments for example, smokers or diabetics need to make more frequent appointments. It is best to ask your dentist at your next appointment.
Are you open on weekends?
Yes. We are open from 8.30 AM until 4 PM on the first and third Saturday of each month.
What pain-free injection methods are available?
We have invested in two clinically-approved systems, which provide you with a choice in what we use on you; The Dental Wand and INJEX, which are both pain-free treatments.
How safe are these systems used at Pain Free Dentistry?
The Dental Wand:
The magic behind this wand is that it takes away any “human error” with a self-retracting needle available as a safety feature. There is also a light that allows the operator to rotate it for easier glide into the gum tissue. The Dental Wand is popular for its precise control and reliable injections in “difficult” areas.
The INJEX completely eliminates the risk of intramuscular injections so discomfort and pain after wearing off the anesthesia is minimal. Bleeding usually does not occur. In rare cases, this may cause a very small drop of blood to emerge at the injection site
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure that improves the appearance of your teeth, your smile, even your self-esteem and confidence. There are some minimally invasive approaches to fix stained teeth, dark teeth, chipped, crooked or even replacing missing teeth. Nowadays, cosmetic dentistry can address functional and aesthetic patient concerns simultaneously.
What are dental implants used for?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone. It is fabricated from a very strong, biocompatible material that is buried in the bone and left undisturbed under the gum tissue. It is left uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports it while the bone grows and bonds to the implant. A dental implant is the closest thing to a natural tooth your dentist can give you and allow for the replacement of a missing tooth without modifying adjacent teeth.
Do you have a payment plan?
We use a loan company called zipMoney, offering services specifically designated for clients having Dental and Orthodontic treatments. It provides finance methods that work for you. zipMoney is ideal for procedures not covered by insurance or where there is a “gap” between insurance cover and the cost of the treatment.
How does the “Child Dental Benefit Schedule” work?
“CDBS” is a financial support for basic dental services for children aged 2-17. If your children are eligible, we will provide restorative and preventative services at no out-of-pocket expense.
