Frequently Asked Questions
At Dental Dynamics, we never want our patients to feel like they’re left in the dark when it comes to better understanding their care here in Skokie, IL. Don’t hesitate to ask our doctors and team members any questions that come up, whether over the phone or here in-person! For added convenience, we’ve compiled some of the most popular FAQs we receive and their answers below:
How many dental checkups and cleanings do I need a year?
We typically recommend two of each for most children and adults – these regular visits give our team the valuable opportunity to better understand your smile’s needs and catch any concerns in their earliest, most harmless stages. If gum disease is present or if the patient is unusually susceptible to tooth decay, Dr. Davidson may recommend more frequent hygiene sessions, such as every three to four months.
What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?
Our specialists strongly believe in the staying power of dental implants, which faithfully replicate every part of natural dental anatomy. As a result, the finished “tooth” is extremely durable and aesthetically pleasing while also providing unmatched longevity. However, we also offer more traditional services like bridges and dentures if implants aren’t quite the right fit for the patient’s budget and preferences. If you’d like to explore your options in greater detail, you can schedule a FREE dental implant consultation!
Will I need to see a specialist for dental implants?
You will, but no traveling is required – the specialists are already right here at Dental Dynamics! With both an oral surgeon and a periodontist on-staff, patients can stay comfortable in one convenient office environment throughout the entire implant treatment process.
I want to straighten my smile, but not if I have to wear metal braces. Is there another option?
Yes! Invisalign® Clear Braces have transformed the traditional orthodontic model, switching out tired brackets and wires for high-quality plastic aligners. These aligners are clear in nature and very subtle when worn, resulting in superior aesthetics throughout the treatment process. Here at Dental Dynamics, we’re currently offering $500 off this state-of-the-art procedure, so don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation today.
Do you see dental emergencies?
We definitely do. Whether you’re a brand-new patient or have already been visiting our Skokie office for years, Dr. Davidson and the rest of our team strives to treat serious dental damage ASAP, not in days or weeks. In many cases, we can even schedule emergency appointments on the same day as your initial call.
I’m busy during regular business hours. Do you offer any other appointment times?
Our Skokie practice is open until 8:00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays! We’re always happy to accommodate professionals and families who need some extra flexibility when it comes to scheduling dental care.
