At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we do all we can to help our patients get the care they need to restore and improve their oral health. Unfortunately, there is something that often makes it difficult for our team and the patient: dental insurance. Dental insurance is a form of health insurance that an individual pays for either through their job or through a personal plan. The thought process is that dental insurance is designed to help pay for and cover the cost of preventative care and restorative treatments. Over the years, dental insurance has become equally frustrating for dental offices and patients. In a patient’s mind, the idea of dental insurance is to get them the dental care they need; unfortunately, it doesn’t usually end up working that way. Dr. Stryker recently shared more information about dental insurance and its frustrations in a video. We encourage you to watch the video and continue reading for more information.
You may be surprised to learn that your overall health can impact your oral health. The state of your overall health can impact the way we are able to treat your teeth and mouth. This is one of the reasons we always ask about any changes to your medical history. You may not be aware, but medications you take can also affect your oral health.
Do you find yourself avoiding cold foods like ice cream because they make you cringe? Or do your teeth bother you if you are eating cold and hot foods at the same time? If you find yourself avoiding foods at extreme temperatures because they cause discomfort, you may be experiencing tooth sensitivity. It is not uncommon to experience tooth sensitivity from time to time; however, if your tooth sensitivity issues are recurring regularly, your mouth may be telling you there is a problem with your oral health. Read on to learn more about tooth sensitivity and the problems you may have with your oral health.
Do you often think about improving the appearance of your teeth? At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we provide a variety of treatments that can make any change you would like to see in your smile. We can even help improve the alignment of your teeth with orthodontic treatment. We are happy to provide patients with the option of clear aligner therapy. If you are thinking that orthodontic treatment is only for children and teenagers, you couldn’t be more incorrect. Orthodontic treatment can benefit patients of all ages, including adults.
At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we are able to help our patients through the entire dental implant process. Dental implants are needed when the entire tooth structure, including the root, is severely damaged or has been removed. Even if you don’t need a tooth replacement at this time, we believe that it is always better to be informed and prepared should the need arise suddenly. We offer a number of dental implant options based on your needs. Thanks to advancements in treatment and technology, more patients than ever before are eligible to receive dental implants.

At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we are passionate about saving our patients’ teeth. One way we do this is with a root canal. Patients often become a bit nervous when they learn they need this treatment. Unfortunately, many movies and television shows have given this treatment a bad reputation. We want to take a few moments to explain more about this treatment and why it can be the difference between saving or extracting your tooth.
My team and I believe that you, our patient, always deserve better. We believe you deserve better technology, better clinical skills, better care, better results, and a better dental experience. This belief drives everything we do. One way that we can do better for our patients is to grow through continuing education. The dental practice is always evolving and changing, with new technology and treatments available to improve your care and recovery. I recently had the opportunity to attend a course that focused on cosmetic dentistry, specifically veneers. Read on to learn more about this opportunity and how it will improve your care.
At Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, we want to help prevent dental issues from happening. We are only born with one set of adult teeth, and when those are not functioning properly, it is up to our team to help restore your oral health. This is why we are so passionate about preventative dentistry. When you care for your teeth properly, you have a better chance of having your natural teeth for your lifetime. Preventative dentistry focuses on keeping your teeth and mouth free from decay and disease. When you practice good preventative care, we are able to detect any problems in your mouth and treat them in the early stages. This benefits your oral and overall health.
Do you experience dental nerves and anxiety, and is it keeping you from visiting our office for routine examinations or a needed treatment? Experiencing dental nerves and anxiety is more common than you may realize. Millions of Americans have some form of dental anxiety, which keeps them from receiving the care and treatment needed for optimum oral health. Unfortunately, when you continue to avoid routine examinations and treatments, it can lead to a never-ending cycle of dental problems, emergencies and lengthy treatments, which will only make the nervous feelings worse. Thankfully, we offer a solution to help patients get the dental care they need while being in a relaxed state — dental sedation.
