Finding the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about dentistry can be hard, especially when there are so many different opinions and “facts.” This is why our team at First Impressions Dentistry of Yukon has made it easy by compiling both questions and answers to some of the most sought-after inquiries. Asked by patients like yourself, you can review the information below and let us know if you would like to discuss them further during an upcoming appointment.

Do I need to see a dentist every six months?

Yes, seeing a dentist every six months ensures that your teeth and gums get the attention they deserve. Because plaque and tartar can accumulate over time, professional teeth cleanings and exams by a skilled dental team are necessary to not only remove harmful bacteria but also ensure that cavities, gum disease, and other similar issues are not developing. While most patients can expect twice-yearly visits, others may need more frequent visits depending on the status of their smile.

Is sedation dentistry an option if I’m scared of visiting the dentist?

Yes, we are pleased to provide three forms of sedation – nitrous oxide, oral conscious, and IV. Each designed for patients with varying needs, these solutions offer patients a way to receive necessary dental care without the worry, fear, and anxiety that can come with visiting the dentist’s office. We will perform a thorough examination and ask about your medical history before deciding which option is right for you.

Are dental implants placed in-house?

Yes! At First Impressions Dentistry of Yukon, there is no need for a referral when it comes to placing dental implants. Our skilled dentists can complete the entire process in-house so that you can avoid seeking a referral for an outside specialist. This eliminates the fears or concerns of having someone else take care of your smile and instead, allows the same friendly faces to continue providing the essential care you need and deserve.

Will you accept my dental insurance?

We are pleased to welcome most PPO dental insurance plans. Our qualified team can review your available benefits and help you decide how best to use them to save the most money. We’ll file paperwork and claims so that you can worry less about the financial obligations that are required with oral healthcare. We’ll even find ways to help you avoid losing money at the end of each year.
