How can we help you?
We know that you probably have questions about your dental treatment, and we're happy to help you find the answers you need! Here are a few of the questions we hear often, but if you don't see yours listed here, please don't hesitate to call us at (225) 673-0445.
We often hear from patients who worry that the cost of dental treatment is not in their budget. Often, people avoid going to the dentist for fear that they will need treatment they cannot afford.
At Prestige Dentistry, we completely understand this fear. Having a healthy smile is an investment, and for many, needs to be an affordable investment.
As costly as dental treatment may seem, putting off dental care can cost much more in the long run. Untreated dental problems fester and cause further damage, creating a situation that costs more than if treated initially. At our office, we work with you to help you get your needed treatment in a timely, cost-effective manner.
One way of making dental care affordable is with CareCredit interest-free financing. Care Credit works similar to a credit card and allows patients to break up payments over a period of time (usually 6 or 12 months) with low or no interest. We will help you get approved on your first visit to our office so that your worries are eliminated.
Another option for making treatment more cost-effective is with pre-payment of your dental treatment. By paying for all your dental care up front, you can receive discounts that reduce the overall cost of your treatment.
Talking about the financial aspect of your dental treatment does not have to be awkward or embarrassing. We aim to help you get the care you need promptly and are happy to discuss how to fit your budget so you can get that healthy smile you deserve. If you have any questions about your treatment plan or cost, give us a call.
A dental emergency can really impact your life and cause great pain. Luckily, your team at Prestige Dentistry is here to give you relief from pain and get you back to normal. Our office can see you the day the emergency occurs.
Common emergency symptoms, like a ‘hot’ tooth with a cavity that has reached the nerve, can be treated with either a prescription to get you out of pain immediately or treating you the same day. If extraction is needed, Dr. Oza and staff can usually do treatment immediately. If there is an active infection or an abscess, an antibiotic and pain medication can be prescribed, and we can get you in as soon as possible to begin treatment.
Another emergency such as a chipped front tooth can be an embarrassing sight. We understand that getting your smile back as soon as possible is important. In this case, we would evaluate your condition and fill the tooth that day if possible.
If your emergency happens during business hours, just call us at (225) 673-0445, and we will fit you in that day. If it's after hours, just leave us a message and we will promptly return your call. We will see what needs to be done to get you comfortable and get you in as soon as possible to evaluate the problem area.
Yes! We love seeing kids at our office. It is recommended that a child’s first trip to the dentist be either when the first tooth appears or by age one. Believe it or not, this first visit sets the tone for a child’s comfort level with the dental office for life. The sooner a kid sees the dentist, the sooner they become comfortable with visiting the dental office throughout life. Establishing this familiarity helps one keep good long-term dental habits and see the dental office as a not-so-scary place to go.
Our goal at Prestige Dentistry is to keep our patient comfortable, including your little ones. We love to show kids what we do in a kid-friendly manner and get them comfortable with the sights and sounds of a dental office. Dr. Oza and staff love to explain to children what their visit will involve and show them that a visit with us will be a positive experience.
We will also spend time with parents to answer any questions you may have. We will discuss home care, diet, and children’s habits, such as thumb-sucking, which can affect the development of the teeth and jaws.
Our office also has Netflix and television in the treatment rooms so your child can forget they are at the dental office. We also like to encourage kids to keep up good hygiene so they can get their picture taken for our No Cavity Club.
