Understanding Gum Disease & How It Affects Your Health

Did you know that a problem like gum disease can affect more than your mouth? When gum disease goes undetected and is allowed to flourish, it can lead to other oral health problems and can also exacerbate systemic problems like heart disease and diabetes. It can also result in bone and tooth loss that requires necessary restorative treatment like dental implants to repair and rebuild your smile. Dr. Cobb believes that preventive dentistry near you is the cornerstone of your overall health. Rather than wait for problems to arise and allowing them to have an impact on your ongoing health, Dr. Cobb encourages regular dental checkups, cleanings, and other preventive treatments designed to protect and support your oral health. And if you are nervous about your treatment or an upcoming visit, Dr. Cobb can provide sedation dentistry to alleviate your fears and ensure a positive and successful experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

We treat our patients like individuals, not numbers. As such, we always take the time to listen to their questions and provide helpful answers. The following FAQs cover several topics that many patients tend to wonder about; we hope that you find the answers we’ve given useful. Of course, you always have the option of calling our dental team near Gardendale if you can’t find the answers you need on this page or elsewhere on our website.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

You can likely think of a few traits that you want from a dental practice, such as accepting your insurance, offering a comprehensive menu of services, and being in a convenient location. You can make a list of what’s most important to you, then search online for dental offices. If you find one that seems to fit what you’re looking for, research them further by reading online reviews. Additionally, you can also check to see if the dentist has a biography that can give you a feel for how experienced they are and what their approach to treatment is.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup and Cleaning Cost in Odessa?

Many dental insurance plans are willing to pay up to 100% of the cost of biannual checkups and cleanings. If you don’t have insurance, then the out-of-pocket cost for these treatments depends on factors like what practice you go to, where it’s located, and how healthy your mouth is. In the United States, a dental checkup and cleaning can cost between $200 and $350; you’ll need to get in touch with the practice in question if you want a more precise answer.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

It takes many years of studying to enter the dental field. After earning a bachelor’s degree, prospective dentists need to go to dental school in order to earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine or a Doctor of Dental Surgery. Dental school typically takes around three years, and the curriculum typically includes plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning.

Once an individual has been recognized as a dentist, they will still need to plan on doing quite a bit of learning. Specifically, they will need to attend continuing education courses every so often, with the exact number of hours needed being determined by the state.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Avoiding the dentist is likely to lead to severe oral health issues in the long run, so it’s best to figure out a way to make dentistry as affordable as possible right now. Oftentimes, this means using your dental insurance benefits wisely. Our team is able to work with many different insurance companies, so please call us to confirm whether we accept your plan. We’re also happy to accept CareCredit from patients who would like to use financing to make the total cost of their care less of a burden on their budget.
