Do You Accept Insurance?
Yes, we do! Our practice is in network for multiple insurance plans, including Delta Dental, United Concordia, UPMC Dental Advantage, UPMC for Life, Aetna, and Cigna. We accept payment from other insurance plans as well. For services not covered by insurance, we offer many payment options. You can pay with cash, check, credit card, or CareCredit.
What Are My Tooth Replacement Options?
At Oakmont Advanced Dentistry, you have lots of choices whether you’re missing just one tooth or a whole mouthful of teeth. We offer several dental implant options, including mini dental implants.
Unlike many general dental practices, we both place and restore implants so you can complete the entire dental implant process in our Oakmont, PA office. If you’d rather not get implants, you can choose traditional dentures or a dental bridge. Our dentists will help you find the solution that best suits your smile. Schedule a consultation to learn more about our teeth replacement options.
Can I Get Dental Sedation?
Yes, you can. We offer two types of safe sedation so you can choose the one that is right for your level of dental anxiety: inhaled sedation (“laughing gas”) or an oral sedative. Either way, our staff will carefully monitor you throughout your procedure. You may find you don’t need sedation at all, however, with our patient-centered care.
You can get treatment in a completely private room, and our dentists will let you know what’s happening every step of the way. They’re happy to answer all your questions and address any concerns before your procedure starts.
When should my child begin brushing his teeth?
When your child is about 3-4 months old, you should begin wiping his gums with a clean cloth during bath time. This will help prepare his gums for baby teeth to emerge! You can continue with the method until your baby has 2-4 teeth. At that point, you should transition to an infant toothbrush and toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that are touching, you will need to begin using floss between those teeth.
