Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Dentistry is a big topic, and it’s understandable that many patients and families likely have questions about what to expect. At Billerica Family Dental, education is a big priority for Dr. Niraja and Dr. Jimish, and they’ll be happy to talk with you about potential treatment recommendations and any serious smile-related concerns in detail. For added convenience and insight, we’ve compiled many popular “FAQ’s” and their answers below.

Do you see children?

Yes – our dental office is named Billerica Family Dental, after all! Our doctors love welcoming in young children, teenagers, parents, grandparents, and everyone who may fall somewhere in-between. They can provide gentle checkups and cleanings, helpful oral hygiene tips for growing smiles, and plenty of warm attention that’s sure to help your son or daughter form a positive relationship with the dentist’s office right away.

Can you help me improve the way my smile looks?

Of course. Our dental office offers a variety of cosmetic services that are specifically designed to erase common flaws like stains and cracks, helping patients achieve a newly confident appearance. Possible options include professional teeth whitening, metal-free restorations, porcelain veneers, gum recontouring, and more – we can help you determine your ideal smile makeover plan during an initial consultation!

What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?

While there’s no such thing as a “perfect” solution for every single patient, our doctors are most likely to recommend dental implants as the optimal choice for replenishing incomplete smiles. Unlike more traditional prosthetics, implants seamlessly rebuild every part of the natural tooth, promoting good oral health, lifelike stability, and exceptional longevity. If you’d like to explore whether or not this state-of-the-art service is right for you, you are always welcome to schedule a consultation here in Billerica, MA.

I’m having a dental emergency! Can you help?

Yes! At Billerica Family Dental, we make time to treat serious dental injuries and/or pain as soon as possible. In most cases, our doctors can accommodate emergency cases on the very same day as your initial call for optimal convenience. Don’t wait – whether you’re a reoccurring patient or brand-new to the dental office, contact us right away!

My gums bleed whenever I brush and floss. Should I be worried?

Bleeding is typically never a good sign. This is a common symptom of gum disease, which is an infection that starts out harmlessly enough but can quickly grow to threaten your healthy teeth and even your overall health. At Billerica Family Dental, we offer dedicated periodontal therapy to remove harmful plaque and get your smile back on the right track. Please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment if you are noticing oral bleeding on a routine basis.

I want a straighter smile, but I hate the idea of wearing metal braces. Is there an alternative?

Absolutely! Invisalign® Clear Braces use barely noticeable aligners instead of traditional wires and brackets for a subtle treatment process. These aligners are also 100% removable, which means that patients won’t even have to make changes to their oral hygiene routine or overall diet. To see if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, schedule a consultation with Dr. Niraja.

Do you take dental insurance?

We are in-network with Delta Dental Premier and BlueCross BlueShield. Our team will also be happy to file claims for many out-of-network PPO insurances. Please visit our new patients page or our dental insurance page to learn more.
