Frequently Asked Dental Questions

Dentistry is a big topic, and many of our patients understandably have questions about what to expect from their treatment and what options are available here at M & M Dentistry. For added convenience, we’ve compiled answers to some of the frequently asked dental questions we hear most often below! If you don’t see the information you’re looking for on this page, that’s not a problem either – just call us directly here in Austin, TX. We’ll be happy to discuss the matter with you one-on-one!

Do you see children?

Absolutely. Our dental office is fully dedicated to serving whole families and even multiple generations, providing personalized support to smiles at every stage of life. Whether our newest patient is two or 102, we can’t wait to help them enjoy outstanding oral health that lasts for years to come. Our menu of services features several kid-friendly options – take a look at them here.

What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?

Every patient’s circumstances are different, which is why we’ll work closely with you to determine the best reconstructive service for your unique case of tooth loss. That said, our dentists strongly recommend dental implants whenever possible because of their outstanding benefits, including full integration with the jawbone for maximum stability and seamlessness. We offer both implant placement and restoration right here in our dental office, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to explore this transformative possibility further.

Can you improve the way my smile looks?

Yes! MMS Family Dentistry offers several cosmetic dentistry solutions for patients who are ready to upgrade their confidence, including porcelain veneers, professional teeth whitening, Invisalign® Clear Braces, and even comprehensive smile makeovers.

I’m having a dental emergency! Can you help?

Of course. We understand how difficult and painful it can be when your smile is suffering damage, and our doctors want to provide effective relief as soon as possible. Contact us right away if you or a family member needs emergency care. In many cases, we can provide treatment on the same day as your call. Custom restorative solutions (such as dental crowns and bonding) are also available to help bring back the full strength and vitality of your teeth in record time.

My gums are bleeding when I brush and floss. Should I be worried?

If oral bleeding is happening consistently during your at-home hygiene routine, the most likely culprit is gum (or periodontal) disease, which is a highly common infection that can eventually threaten the wellbeing of your natural teeth. We encourage you to schedule a dental checkup and cleaning at MMS Family Dentistry as soon as possible; our talented hygienists can assess your gum health, remove accumulations of plaque and tartar, and prescribe further treatment as needed to get your smile back on the right track.

Do you take dental insurance?

Yes. We are in-network with most major PPO dental insurances available throughout the Austin, TX area and will always do our best to maximize your benefits. If you’d like to learn more about your financial options, please visit our patients page or contact us directly.
