Dental FAQs in Carrollton
Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions we hear in our office:
Do you accept referrals?
New patients are a welcomed part of our daily schedule. We appreciate the trust that our patients show in us when they refer their family members, friends, and coworkers to our Carrollton dental office.
What do I do if I have an emergency when the office is closed?
Dr. Campbell cares for and about his patients whether it is during office hours or not! If you are a patient of record or you are referred to us by a patient of record, just call the office and leave a message to page the doctor. He will get back to you as quickly as possible.
Do you have nitrous oxide (laughing gas)?
Yes, we have found that nitrous oxide, in addition to effective local anesthetics, makes an appointment go smoothly for many people.
What precautions do you take to ensure my safety?
We adhere to state guidelines for sterility in practice and use an outside source to monitor the efficacy of our sterilization procedures. Ask us for a tour of our Carrollton dental office to see just how clean an office can be.
I want my front teeth to look better, but I do not want to wear braces. Is there anything that you can suggest?
Veneers may be a good alternative for you. Veneers are ultra-thin chips of porcelain or bonded material that are firmly attached to the front of your teeth. Used to cover cracked, chipped, discolored or slightly crooked teeth, veneers can provide a quick two-visit makeover for your smile.
My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?
Yes! Bleeding gums are often a sign of periodontal (gum) disease, a serious bacterial infection that can cause tooth loss. The bacteria that cause periodontal disease have also been linked to diabetes, heart disease, low birth weight babies, halitosis (bad breath) and a number of other significant health concerns. Periodontal disease is the major source of tooth loss in adult patients.
If your gums are bleeding, give us a call so Dr. Campbell can evaluate the health of your gums and get you started on a treatment plan right away.
