Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to visiting the dentist or taking care of your teeth, you’re likely to have a few questions. Educating patients is an important part of the services that we offer, so if there’s anything that you have been wondering about dentistry lately, don’t hesitate to bring it to our attention. Below are some examples of questions that some of our nearby patients have asked as well as our responses; we hope that you find the information here useful!

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?

The surest way to get a same-day dental appointment is to call the dental practice directly. This allows you to speak to a staff member so that you can explain your situation and start making the necessary arrangements for a visit right away.

Same-day appointments are typically necessary when you’re suffering from some type of dental emergency, with common examples being a severe toothache, a cracked tooth, and a tooth that has been knocked entirely out of the mouth. When you visit our office for a same-day appointment, we will gather as much information as we can about your situation so that we can start determining the best next steps for treatment.

What is the Best Way to Find a Dentist Who Does Dental Implants?

The dental implant process involves two main stages: surgically inserting the implant posts into the jaw and attaching the final restoration. Some dentists only handle the restoration stage and refer their patients to a specialist for the actual implant placement. However, some dental practices (such as D&G Dental of West Orange) are capable of handling both steps in-office.

You can check a dentist’s credentials to see if they have any special training regarding dental implants. As an example, Dr. Dawoud holds a Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and he has made a point of keeping a close eye on any advancements in the dental implant field.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup and Cleaning Cost in West Orange, NJ?

It goes without saying that the amount you end up paying for a routine dental checkup and cleaning depends on which practice you go to. Your dental health can also play a role in determining the overall cost. Be sure to double-check your dental insurance benefits; some plans will cover 100% of the cost of preventive dentistry after your deductible has been met.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

If you’re not sure how you’re going to pay for necessary dental services, you should take the time to consider the financial options available to you. Obviously, dental insurance can be very helpful when it comes to managing dentistry-related expenses that are covered, like dentures . But if you don’t have insurance, or you’re interested in a service that isn’t covered, like veneers , you want to think of applying for CareCredit financing so that you can pay for your care in a series of smaller monthly installments.
