Frequently Asked Dental Questions – San Antonio, TX

Got a Question? We’re Here to Help

With so many treatments available in dentistry to date, it can be tough to know which is right for you. Furthermore, it can be hard to pick a dentist if you aren’t sure if they will be capable of addressing your needs. Brice Dental wants to make it as easy as possible for you to get all of your questions answered, which is why we’ve included the most frequently asked dental questions our dental office receives, along with our detailed answers.

Do you place dental implants?

Not only do we place dental implants in-house, but we can place enough dental implants to hold a complex denture in the process! Dr. Brice is experienced in full mouth reconstructions and is more than happy to work with you to build a treatment plan that addresses your tooth replacement needs.

Do you take my dental insurance plan?

We are currently in-network with Delta Dental Premier and are happy to accept any PPO plans from other providers. Even if you are out-of-network, we encourage you to pay our dental office a visit as our team is happy to help you maximize your benefits to the fullest extent.

How can I pay for dental care?

If you do not currently have dental insurance, there’s always third-party financing companies like CareCredit and LendingClub, both of which are available at our dental office. You can also consider our in-house dental savings plan, which makes preventive care extremely affordable.

What if I’m scared or anxious about treatment?

Just because you may be anxious or afraid of dental care does not mean you have to sacrifice your oral health in the process. Our dental office is equipped with nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and even IV sedation for those with extreme anxiety, so you can get the care you need without feeling fearful.

My back teeth hurt. Do they need to be removed?

If you’re experiencing tooth pain in the back of your mouth and you are between the ages of 18 and 25, there’s a good chance that you need to have your wisdom teeth removed. Of course, we’ll be able to confirm this and perform treatment entirely in-house as Dr. Brice does not need to reach out to specialists or refer you to another dental office.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Cleanings and exams should be performed once every six months. However, if you are currently completing treatment for advanced gum disease, you’ll need to visit more often, typically every three or four months. We recommend children to have their initial appointment either within six months of their first tooth erupting or by one year of age.

Can you improve my smile’s appearance?

Absolutely! Not only do we offer teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, but we also offer metal-free restorations. This way, you never have to worry about making sure that your smile looks natural following your cosmetic or restorative treatment.
