Q: Should I Be Worried About Bleeding Gums?

Bleeding gums are often a sign of gum disease. With her advanced periodontal training, Dr. Fox can treat both simple and more advanced cases of gum disease. She is one of the relatively few dentists to offer the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a procedure to repair receding gums that is quicker and more comfortable than a gum graft. Unlike a graft, no cutting or stitching is needed. 

Q: Can I Get Dental Implants?

Most likely, you can! And you can have the entire process done by Dr. Fox. That’s more convenient than getting dental implants placed by one dentist and restored by another. Dr. Fox has been placing and restoring implants since 2000. She’s a Fellow in the Misch International Implant Institute and a Diplomate in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Even if your jawbone isn’t strong enough to support implants, you still may have options. Dr. Fox can use mini dental implants, which work in many situations where full-size implants aren’t feasible. Or she can strengthen your jaw with a bone graft.

Q: Do You Have Any Orthodontic Options?

Yes! You can get Six Month Smiles to straighten your smile. Because these braces focus on cosmetic improvement of your upper front teeth, adults can complete their treatment in an average of just six months. In addition to the short treatment time, patients appreciate the braces’ discreet appearance. Because they have clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, it’s likely no one will even notice you’re wearing them. In addition, they are more affordable than either traditional braces or aligners.

Q: Do You Accept Dental Insurance?

Yes, we’re a provider in the Delta Dental network. Our staff will work with you to get reimbursement from other insurance companies as well. We never want payment for your dental services to be a problem. If you don’t have insurance or it won’t cover your treatment, we can also help you apply for flexible financing through CareCredit or LendingClub.
