Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question for Dr. Kelly? Want to know if we’ll accept your dental insurance? On this page, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions our patients ask us every day. If you still have a question for us after reading through this page, please feel free to just call and ask! We’re always happy to take extra time to make sure you completely understand your dental care.

How often should I visit the dentist?

According to Dr. Kelly as well as the American Dental Association, people should visit the dentist at least twice a year in order to keep their teeth completely healthy and avoid common dental problems such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.

Why do I need regular checkups even if I brush my teeth?

The reason that you need to take care of your teeth at home and still come see us is because your teeth have many surfaces that your brush and floss simply aren’t designed to clean. These areas gather plaque as time passes, and eventually they can develop into harmful cavities. Our dental cleanings can reach these trouble spots, plus by seeing Dr. Kelly regularly, he’ll be able to catch any dental problems you might have early so he can treat them quickly.

I have a broken tooth/cavity. How long will it take to get it fixed?

At most other offices, they would tell you that it requires at least two visits to the office in order to fully repair a tooth, but thanks to our E4D system, we can restore your smile using a custom-made all-porcelain crown in as little as an hour. This technology has digitized the entire process, so in just one visit, we can design, mill, and place your crown so you can get back to your life as quickly as possible.

My jaw hurts all the time. Can you help?

Dr. Kelly is actually one of the leading authorities in the country when it comes to both diagnosing and treating TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder. This condition affects the sensitive jaw joints and can cause all kinds of chronic pain, and it is even a leading source of migraine headaches. Thanks to Dr. Kelly’s expertise, he’ll be able to find the root cause of your pain and help you get the relief you deserve in no time.

How can a dentist help me with sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition that actually originates in the mouth and throat area, and in order to treat it, a doctor must have an extensive working knowledge of facial anatomy, which is exactly what a dentist like Dr. Kelly has! Using a custom-made oral appliance, he can help sleep apnea patients breathe comfortably throughout the night and get the rest they need.

Can you help if one of my teeth has been knocked/broken?

Yes, our team is able to handle a wide array of dental emergencies at our practice. If you or a loved one injure your smile in an accident or develop severe dental pain, please give us a call as quickly as possible. We’ll be more than happy to provide same-day urgent care if necessary.

Will you take my dental insurance?

We will happily take your dental insurance to help you save at your dental care. We are currently in-network with Delta Dental, MetLife, and United Concordia, and we also accept plans from any provider. To learn how we can use your particular plan, please contact us today.
