Frequently Asked Dental Questions

Do I really have to visit the dentist twice a year?

It’s the recommendation of the American Dental Association, and Dr. Allen’s Parker, CO team stands behind it as well. Our team uses these regular checkups as an opportunity to partner with patients to ensure they maintain their healthiest smiles.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is better known by the name gum disease. It occurs when plaque and tartar buildup at the gum line irritates the soft tissue leading to gum recession, soft tissue inflammation, chronic bad breath, and other health concerns. We are happy to provide a wide array of periodontal therapies to renew oral health following gum disease.

Does Invisalign really straighten teeth?

Absolutely. The unique Invisalign alignment tray orthodontic system allows us to create an orthodontic treatment plan that will align your smile without the metal brackets and wires necessary for traditional braces.

Can I call you if I have an emergency?

We’re happy to help our patients of record who experience dental emergencies, and in most cases, we’re able to provide same day appointments. If we’re unable to see you on the day you call, we’ll talk you through first aid and pain management over the phone.

I get nervous at the dentist. Do you have anything that will help?

Our team offers gentle, attentive care and works hard to put patients at ease. However, we know that some patients need a little extra help relaxing. That’s why we offer a variety of sedation dentistry services to help you stay calm and free from pain through even the most advanced dental services.

Should I consider dental implants?

We encourage any patient missing one or more teeth to consider replacement using dental implant supported prosthetics. Dental implants mimic the natural function of tooth roots, and allow us to replace the entire lost dental structure, not just the crowns like traditional tooth replacement.

Do you take my insurance?

We are happy to process and file dental insurance claims for most plans, and we are in network providers for many of the major insurance companies including Delta Dental and BlueCross BlueShield.
