I have a temporary crown in my mouth. What happens if it comes off or breaks?


Call us immediately so we can schedule an appointment to replace it. Dr. Weyandt may simply reapply the temporary crown or fit the permanent crown if it is available.  When a temporary crown falls off or breaks, reattach the crown using Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly or toothpaste.

How can I safely whiten my teeth?


Whitening is very popular and many people are curious about the benefits and side effects of whitening. Since each mouth is unique, we need to evaluate your teeth to recommend a specific method. If your teeth are cracked, chipped, or discolored, Dr. Weyandt may recommend restorative services, such as veneers or bonding.

What precautions do you take to ensure patient safety?


We follow a number of health and safety guidelines. First, our office complies and exceeds OSHA standards for safety. All of our staff also maintains their current CPR certification. With every patient, we follow standard precautions. These safety procedures are established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA). Under these precautions, our dental team is required to use the appropriate protective wear, such as gloves, masks and eyewear. After your visit, we disinfect the operatory and sterilize all of the equipment. We have a sterilization center where we can maximize efficient sterilization. If you have any questions, we would be happy to demonstrate our sterilization procedures. You can also view the CDC Infection Control guidelines online at www.cdc.gov.

My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?


Yes, you should be concerned about bleeding gums, especially if you haven’t had an exam in a while. Bleeding gums may be a symptom of several problems, such as leaky fillings or gum disease. While it may seem harmless, bleeding gums could be a symptom of health problems.

I really do not like visiting the dentist, is there anything you can do to help me relax?


Many patients are nervous about receiving dental treatment. We offer nitrous oxide to help make your visit more comfortable.  Often referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide can reduce anxiety for children and adults nervous about their visit. Also, listening to relaxing music or watching a program may help reduce stress and anxiety.

I brush everyday, but my breath just is not fresh. Is there anything I can do?

Dr. Weyandt advises the use of Listerine® or Crest® Pro Health antimicrobial rinses daily to improve breath odor. If you have questions about ways to improve your breath, ask any of us during your appointment, or call us at 952-937-2839.

Do I have to floss every day? Is it really that important?

Brushing cleans about 80% of your teeth while flossing covers the remaining 20%. Although that seems like a small percentage, this area is where the serious problems originate. That’s why cleaning this area by flossing is very important. In addition to flossing, she encourages her patients use an electric toothbrush, such as a Braun Oral B or Sonic Care toothbrush, which is more effective at plaque removal.

What payment options do you offer?

In this day and age, we know deciphering your insurance benefits can be confusing. That’s why we will file your claim for you; patient co-pays are due at the time of your appointment. You can pay for our services with cash, check or credit card. We accept most major credit cards (such as Master Card, Visa, and Discover). Any amount not covered by your insurance is your responsibility.
