Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know if it’s time for your next checkup or if we accept your dental insurance? Below, you’ll find answers to many of the most common questions our patients ask us. If you still have a question after looking over this page, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. No question is too small, and we’re always happy to make sure you completely understand your dental care.

How often should I go to the dentist?

Dr. Greenwood, as well as the American Dental Association, recommends that everyone over the age of three should visit their dentist at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. This is the best way to keep a smile looking great and prevent common problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.

Do you accept child patients?

We do! The team at Greenwood Dental is happy to treat every member of your family, including the youngest and cutest ones!

Why do I need dental cleanings if I brush my teeth every day?

While brushing (and flossing!) is essential to your long-term dental health, the simple fact is that your tools at home aren’t able to reach every single surface in your mouth. These tiny areas can accumulate plaque over time that eventually causes a cavity. With a professional dental cleaning, we can take care of these hard to reach spots to make sure your smile stays healthy year round.

What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

The answer to this question will be different from individual to individual, but thankfully, Greenwood Dental is able to offer a multitude of tooth replacement options, including bridges, dentures, and state-of-the-art dental implants. We can even provide all-inclusive implant care, so no matter which option you choose, you can trust us to rebuild your smile.

How much do dental implants cost?

This is a very common question, and the short answer is that there is no “set” cost for dental implants. It differs depending on each patient’s situation. You can learn more about the factors that influence the cost of dental implants on our full page here.

Why is my tooth hurting?

There is actually a wide variety of factors that can lead to dental pain, and some of them are quite serious! If you’re experiencing a persistent pain in one of your teeth, gums, or jaw, be sure to contact us right away!

Do you accept dental insurance?

Yes, Greenwood Dental is happy to accept dental insurance. We’re in-network providers with some of the most common insurance plans, and to learn how we can use your particular plan to help you save on your dental care, please contact us today.
