Frequently Asked Dental Questions

Get All Of Your Questions Answered

Do you have more questions after looking through our website? We’re able to answer them! Below, we’ve compiled some of the most common ones that we receive from our patients for your convenience. If you don’t see yours on the list, contact our office so we can get any of your concerns addressed.

Will my dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?

Unfortunately, it’s uncommon for dental insurance benefits to cover the cost of cosmetic procedures because they don’t deem them as necessary to improving or restoring your oral health. Fortunately, we offer additional financing through CareCredit so you can receive the treatments you want without having to worry about burning a hole through your pocket.

Do you have a children’s dentist on staff?

At Grand Dental - Aurora, we have a pediatric dentist on staff. They’ve completed additional advanced training to offer specialized care for infants, toddlers, children, and teens. This makes our office a one-stop-shop for all of your family members!

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

Many patients don’t know that they should change out their toothbrush every three months, or whenever they get sick. This is to prevent the accumulation of bacteria in the bristles. If you have difficulty remembering this, you can set a reminder in your phone or just get a new toothbrush once you notice the bristles begin to fray.

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

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends bringing your child in for their first dental appointment once their first tooth has grown in, or by their first birthday. By delaying this crucial appointment, you could be taking a gamble on your child’s oral development.

Do you have special COVID-19 precautions in place?

Our Aurora dental office has put several new safety protocols into place to ensure our patient’s health and safety during each of their appointments.

Is orthodontic treatment covered by dental insurance?

Depending on your unique dental plan, orthodontic treatment may or may not be covered. The best way to find out is to contact your insurance company directly and ask. Our team would also be more than happy to help you navigate additional financing options.

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

Toothaches are common symptoms of an infection hidden beneath the surface of your tooth. If you have a persistent ache that won’t go away, it’s crucial for you to visit an emergency dentist nearby for diagnosis and treatment.
