Is there an alternative to traditional braces?
Yes! Invisalign clear braces are a series of comfortable, virtually invisible aligners that gentle shift your teeth into position. Because the aligners are removable, they’re easy to clean. And you can eat or drink anything you like. In addition, the average treatment time is only 12 months.
My teeth are stained, crooked, and have weird spacing. Is there a single procedure that will take care of all these cosmetic problems?
Porcelain veneers can give you a brighter, whole, straight smile—usually in only two dental visits. Veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells that are adhered to your prepared teeth. Porcelain veneers are durable, stain-resistant, and if properly taken care of, they can last a lifetime.
I have a really bad toothache. What’s wrong?
If you have a toothache, you need to call Dr. Markle’s dental office immediately! Chances are good that through severe decay, breaks, or fractures, bacteria have infected the nerve and pulp in the interior of your tooth. In most cases, root canal therapy will resolve the problem.
Is there a way to ensure my children don’t get cavities?
Encouraging your children to maintain a daily oral hygiene routine is the best way to ensure that they don’t get cavities. They should brush twice and floss once every day, and it’s important that they limit sugary snacks and beverages. For additional protection, Dr. Markle can add dental sealants—a thin plastic protective layer—to their molars. We also recommend fluoride treatments, which can be applied during regular checkups.
What kind of payment options do you offer?
You can pay with cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We accept and file most dental health insurances. If you need multiple dental procedures that either you or your insurance provider can’t cover then we recommend that you apply for CareCredit. CareCredit also offers extremely flexible plans with 0% interest for up to 24 months.
