Daniel B. Armistead, DDS Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What type of dental work do you do?
A: "We’re a general dentistry practice, so our job is to do restorative work on teeth. This includes routine cleanings and preventative care, fillings, cosmetic dental procedures, tooth whitening, dentures, dental implants, and root canals. "
Q: How much will my dental procedure cost?
A: "It depends on the treatment, but we’re always upfront about costs with our patients. Also, we charge by the entire procedure, not by the visit, which means if you’re having a crown replaced, you’ll only be charged one fee for the entire process, not separate fees for each phase. "
Q: Will I be in pain during my dental procedure?
A: "We’re very skilled at working gently, and we use hand instruments so we don’t have to administer anesthetics. We take pain management very seriously, so we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. "
Q: Do you accept Delta Dental?
A: "Yes. "
Q: Is an electric toothbrush better than a regular toothbrush?
A: "It depends on how you use it. If you use an electric toothbrush, make sure you don’t push or press too hard against the outside edges of your teeth—those toothbrushes move very fast, so you can cause gingival recession if you’re not careful. "
