Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Glastonbury, CT

For All of Your Dental Concerns, Rely on Us!

Do you have questions about dental insurance coverage, a treatment that you’re interested in, or your at-home oral hygiene routine? Our team is here to provide you with the information you need to take care of your smile and prevent a visit to your emergency dentist. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions that we receive from our patients for your convenience.

What happens during semi-annual checkups?

At every semi-annual checkup, we examine patients’ smiles, thoroughly clean teeth, and take time to answer questions, address oral health concerns, do a thorough oral cancer screening, and develop a care plan that works for you.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is the infection of gum tissue caused by plaque and tartar buildup at the gum line. In the early stages, more frequent professional cleanings may be enough to reverse damage, but left untreated, more advanced care is required to preserve oral health following gum disease.

Contact the team at Heim & Carroll DMD, LLC right away during a dental emergency. We’re here to help when you need us most.

Do you take my insurance?

We are happy to accept your insurance, and work to maximize coverage for any benefit plan. We are in-network with many major PPO providers.

What if I need to make payments for my treatment?

We are happy to work with CareCredit to offer patients low or no interest financing in case you need to spread out payments for advanced care.
