Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions
Have questions about your dental care? Want to know more about Woodside Dental Care? Below, we’ve compiled answers to some of the most common questions we receive. If you have a question that hasn’t been answered below, be sure to give us a call and ask! Our dental team members serving Freetown and Assonet are always happy to talk to you and make sure you have all the information you need to take care of you and your family's smiles.
How often should I visit the dentist?
Dr. Cornetta recommends that patients should have at least two cleanings and a checkup each year. These appointments enable him to catch and treat minor problems before they can become major headaches, plus they can help stop tooth decay and gum disease before they even start.
Can I bring my child to Woodside Dental Care?
Yes! Our dental office has been serving local families for more than 30 years, which is so long that many of our patients are now bringing in their own children to see us! We’re happy to treat children of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers and everyone in between, to make sure that our most precious citizens are put on the path to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
How should I replace my missing teeth?
This answer will be different for each patient depending on their situation, but for most, our first recommendation would be dental implants. They are the most complete restorative option available today, able to bring back an entire tooth both above and below the gum line. They look natural, are extremely strong, and they can easily last for 30 years or more. Want to know if you’d be a good candidate for this treatment? If so, give us a call today.
I just want my smile to look better. Can you help?
Yes! We have an entire selection of cosmetic services that are specifically designed to make a smile look more radiant and attractive. We can quickly get rid of annoying stains with teeth whitening, make chips, cracks, and gaps practically disappear with porcelain veneers, and even discreetly straighten your teeth with ClearCorrect. Whether you’re looking for a minor touch-up or complete makeover, our team is ready to give you the beautiful and natural-looking results you desire.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
Yes, we are happy to accept most PPO dental insurance plans. Our dental office manager, Michelle “Mitch” Borges, can go over your benefits with you so you know exactly how you’re covered, and then she can file your claims for you to make things nice and easy.
