Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions – Indian Land, SC

Need Help? We’re Happy
to Answer Your Questions

There are many treatments available in dentistry today, so there’s no reason to feel guilty if you aren’t sure which treatments are best for your specific dental concerns. Our goal at BridgeMill Dental Care is to make you feel comfortable about care, not hesitant or apprehensive. Below, you’ll find answers to the most frequently asked dentistry questions we get from patients, as well as detailed answers. If you feel that your question was not fully answered, we’d love for you to call or pay us a visit in person!

How often should I visit the dentist?

Dr. Candon recommends that all patients visit the dental office for cleanings and exams at least once every six months. This gives us an opportunity to address issues before they have a chance to turn into serious emergencies later. They also help us confirm that your at-home oral care routine is sufficient.

Can you replace missing teeth?

There are multiple ways to replace teeth at our dental office, whether you’re missing one tooth or all the teeth in your mouth. Through dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants, we can effectively rebuild your smile as well as your self-confidence in showing your smile to others.

Can I visit you for a dental emergency?

Absolutely. If you are experiencing a toothache, cracked or chipped tooth, or a knocked-out tooth, the first thing you should be doing is calling our dental office to schedule an appointment. We’ll do everything possible to get you seen the same day as your emergency.

What if I feel nervous about treatment?

Our dental office is equipped with multiple amenities to make your dental care experience as comfortable as possible. Not only do we have wall-mounted televisions with Netflix to distract you from treatment, but we also offer nitrous oxide sedation if you suffer from dental anxiety or discomfort. It’s our highest priority to make sure you feel accommodated.

Can I enhance my smile at your dental office?

There are many ways to remove cosmetic imperfections at BridgeMill Dental Care! Whether you want to remove deep stains from enamel or reshape it to resolve chips and cracks, our dental office has teeth whitening, metal-free restorations, and direct bonding to get it done, often in a single appointment.

Can I bring my whole family?

We are always happy to welcome patients of all ages to the dental office, whether you are a child having their first-ever dental appointment or an older family member with complex restorative needs. Our convenient scheduling also makes it easier to get the whole family seen in a single appointment, so there’s no need to reserve multiple days out of the week just to see the dentist.

What if I don’t have dental insurance?

Just because you aren’t using dental insurance doesn’t mean you can’t receive affordable care. While we are in-network with many plans, we also offer an in-house savings plan designed to make your future preventive care more affordable. You can also utilize CareCredit should you need to break your treatment costs into more manageable chunks.
