FAQ

You have dental questions, and S&G Family Dentistry has the answers. Look through some of the most common questions we get below. Your answer may only be a click away.

Q: What dental service is best for my cracked tooth?

Depending on the severity of the crack, you typically are left with two effective options. You can elect for a dental veneer if the crack is not too severe. A dental crown is recommended for more severe cracks in teeth as it covers the entire visible tooth, not just the front surface.

Q: Are dental implants better than dentures?

Dental implants are not better or worse than dentures. They are different. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots, and dentures are replacement teeth mounted on a polymer base. Dental implants, however, prevent jawbone deterioration that occurs after losing teeth, and they can never come out of your mouth like dentures sometimes do. We can provide the best of both worlds by using dental implants and dentures together to replace a whole arch of missing teeth.

Q: Does S&G accept dental insurance?

S&G Family Dentistry wants to make sure you are able to get the care you need. We work with many of the top dental insurance providers in the industry. If you are curious to find out if we work with your provider, call our office at 913-945-1612. You can schedule your appointment after you find out the answer to your question.

Q: What toothbrush should I use to clean my teeth?

Dr. Schopper and all of our team recommend an electric toothbrush like those from Oral-B or Sonicare. These types of toothbrushes can do a better job removing more plaque and tartar from your mouth than a normal toothbrush does.
