Going to the dentist can already be an overwhelming experience for some people, and wondering how to pay for it can make it worse. The financial aspect of your dental care, from what your insurance covers to what to do if you don’t have insurance, can be confusing. At Turnagain Dental we will do our best to walk our patients in the Anchorage, AK area through their options before their treatment.
Our teeth are made to last a lifetime, yet there are many reasons why our oral health can begin to decline. One of the main contributors to the wearing down of our teeth are the foods and drinks we consume on a regular basis. While it is best to avoid most of these products, a few can be eaten in moderation and there are certain ways to keep them from causing harm to your teeth. Oral health starts at home, which is why Dr. David Green and his team at Turnagain Dental focus on preventative care.
When tooth decay spreads to the pulp of your tooth and a root canal can’t save it, an extraction is necessary to stop the spread of the infection into your bone. Yet, what happens after the tooth is pulled? At Turnagain Dental we not only provide in-office extractions, but also offer our patients several restorative dentistry options. Whether you choose dental bridges or implants, we will go over the pros and cons of each so you can make an informed decision.
