Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Barnegat, NJ

Answering All of Your Dental-Related Questions

Do you have questions about dental insurance coverage, treatments, or at-home oral hygiene? Our team of friendly professionals are happy to provide you with the answers you need so you can maintain excellent oral health. Below, we’ve compiled some of the most common questions that we receive for your convenience. If you don’t see the answers you need, don’t hesitate to call us!

How often should dental checkups be completed?

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning to keep your teeth and gums healthy and avoid developing oral health problems.

How can I relax during dental appointments?

At NU Dental of Barnegat, we’re happy to offer two different dental sedation methods, oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide. Depending on the severity of your dental anxiety, medical history, and what type of treatment you’re receiving, we can help choose the best one for you. That way, you can feel comfortable while you’re in the treatment chair.

If my tooth hurts, should I schedule an emergency appointment right away?

If you have a persistent toothache, it could be a sign of a tooth infection, which requires immediate treatment. We can typically treat this problem with root canal therapy, but when it’s left to progress, we may need to extract it. That’s why we recommend calling our dental office immediately if you experience any out-of-the-ordinary oral discomfort.

Are metal braces my only option for straightening teeth?

No! At NU Dental of Barnegat, we offer discreet Invisalign clear aligners and house-made NU Aligners so you can straighten your teeth without needing to fill your mouth with metal brackets and wires.

What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?

Everybody’s mouth is different, so there’s no default treatment that’s the “best” option for everybody. However, one of our most highly recommended tooth replacement solutions is dental implants. To learn more, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. G today.

Do you have cosmetic treatments to make my smile look more attractive?

At NU Dental of Barnegat, we offer a variety of customized cosmetic treatments that can help repair dental damage, misalignment, and tooth discoloration. To learn what treatments can help transform your smile, we welcome you to contact our dental office today.

Does your dental office accept dental insurance?

Yes! We’re happy to accept dental insurance and are even in-network with several major dental insurance plans. To learn more about your policy’s coverage, we welcome you to contact our team directly so you can speak with one of our financial advisors." >
