If You’ve Got a Dental Question, Let Us Know

Q: Can you see me in a dental emergency?
We can usually see you on the same day of a dental emergency, thanks to our extended hours. Unlike some dentists, we’re even available to see you on Fridays and Saturdays. With multiple doctors, we’re able to leave room in our schedule for emergencies every day.
Q: Do you treat sleep apnea?
Yes! We’ll review your medical history and symptoms with you, then help arrange a study at a sleep center if needed. If you get a sleep apnea diagnosis, we’ll help you determine which treatment option is best for you. We can fit you for a custom oral appliance that keeps your airway clear as you slumber. Many people find oral appliances more convenient and comfortable to use than a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine.
Q: Can I get orthodontic treatment?
One of our doctors is an orthodontist who can create an orthodontics treatment plan for any age, from children to adults. In addition to treatment with traditional metal braces, we offer Invisalign, which straightens your teeth with a series of clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets.
Q: Can I get dental implants?
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, but many people are. Our dentists will use advanced technology like 3D imaging to quickly determine whether you have a strong enough jaw for dental implants. But you may still have options even if we determine your jaw won’t support full-sized implants. We can perform a bone graft to strengthen your jaw, or we may be able to use mini dental implants, which are smaller than their full-sized counterparts
Q: What Are My Options for Covering Flaws Like Chips or Stains?
We offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including treatments to conceal imperfections. Your choices include: dental veneers, thin “shells” of toothlike material we apply to front surfaces of your teeth; dental bonding, a treatment that involves applying tooth-colored resin to your teeth; and Snap-On Smile, a removable arch of teeth that you can snap into place.
Q: Q: I’m afraid of the dentist. Can you help?
Being afraid of the dentist, or dental anxiety, is extremely common. At our Attleboro, MA dental office, we have many years of experience in helping people relax during their appointments. You can also choose from our comfort options to make the experience more pleasant. You should also know that we have a strict no-pain policy. If there’s the slightest chance that you’ll experience pain during any procedure, we’ll be sure to make you comfortably numb beforehand.
