Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Channahon, IL

Answering Your Dental Questions

Even after going through our website, you might still have a few questions about our services. Below, we’ve collected and answered some of the questions we’ve heard on a frequent basis. If you don’t see yours on the list, don’t hesitate to call us before you schedule an appointment.

Will my dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?

Not very many dental insurance plans will cover elective procedures, which cosmetic treatments are typically classified as. (There are exceptions, though.) You do have the option of applying for CareCredit financing so that you don’t have to pay the entire cost of treatment at once.

Do you have a children’s dentist on staff?

Yes, we do have a pediatric dentist on our Grand Dental – Channahon team. They’ve been trained to treat children of all ages; that includes infants and teenagers. That means your entire family can get dental care under one roof!

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

The recommendation is usually to get a new toothbrush every three months, or at the start of a new season. You should also switch brushes if you’ve been sick. This is because bacteria and germs will slowly but surely start to accumulate on the bristles.

When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?

The first dental wellness checkup should be performed either before your child’s first birthday or around the time their first tooth has grown in. Don’t put it off for too long; no one with teeth is too young to get a cavity!

Do you have special COVID-19 precautions in place?

Yes, we have incorporated several new safety procedures into our dental office so that we can keep our team and patients safe during regular checkups.

Is orthodontic treatment covered by dental insurance?

Many plans do help pay for orthodontic care while others do not. If you’re not sure, call your insurance company before you schedule an orthodontic appointment. We can discuss other financing options during your visit.

If I have a toothache, do I need to visit an emergency dentist?

Many toothaches are indicative of infection or damage beneath the enamel of your tooth. Call us immediately if you have tooth pain that grows severe or doesn’t go away after a couple of days.
