We’re Happy to Answer Your Questions

Still have questions after reviewing our website? Below, you can find some of the most common questions we’ve heard as well as our detailed answers. Don’t see yours? Please call us for additional guidance.

Will my dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?

It’s common for dental insurance plans to lack coverage for cosmetic treatments. However, not all treatments that can be considered cosmetic can’t still protect your oral health (i.e. dental crowns.) Additionally, CareCredit can make it easier to pay for treatments without paying a large lump sum.

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

You should be changing your toothbrush once every three months or when you become sick as bacteria can easily accumulate on the toothbrush’s bristles. Feel free to establish a reminder on your calendar or phone if you need help remembering this habit.

When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry states that children should be brought in for a dental appointment once their first tooth has erupted or by their first birthday.

Do you have special COVID-19 precautions in place?

Our Sycamore dental office has numerous safety protocols put into place to protect your family and our team. Please visit our Safety Page for more information.

Is orthodontic treatment covered by dental insurance?

Orthodontic treatment may or may not be covered depending on your plan. The best way to confirm this is by getting in touch with your insurance company. We’ll help you navigate additional financing options if needed.

If I have a toothache, do I need to visit a dentist immediately?

A toothache is typically a sign that an infection is present underneath your tooth. If the pain doesn’t stop, call our dental office right away for emergency care. We offer flexible, convenient scheduling, and even an after hours messaging system.
