Patient Financing | CareCredit

Dental Patient Financing | CareCredit 

We get asked a lot by new patients if we do in-office payment plans. Here at LADD Dental Group, we do not offer in-office payment plans. However, we do partner with a third party lender called CareCredit, that has a ton of patient borrowing benefits. We also have an In-House Dental Discount Plan called DentalOne, but I am primarily going to focus on CareCredit for this blog.

Dental Technology | Intraoral Camera

Intraoral Camera 
"In a nutshell, an intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an X-ray of the outside of the gum or tooth.

Not so long ago, only a handful within the dental community used this tiny camera to take pictures of the teeth and gums. Today, use of the intraoral camera is widespread.

Dental Emergency | Emergency Dental Care

Dental Emergency | LADD Dental Group "Accidents happen, and knowing what to do when one occurs can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth. For all dental emergencies, it’s important to visit your dentist as soon as possible. Most dentists reserve time in their daily schedules for emergency patients so be sure to call your dentist and provide as much detail as you can about your condition. If the accident occurs when your dental office is not open, visit your local emergency room. Here are some common dental emergencies and how to deal with them.  Question: What do I do if I knock out my tooth?Answer: For a knocked-out permanent or adult tooth, keep it moist at all times. If you can, try placing the tooth back in the socket without touching the root. If that’s not possible, place it in between your cheek and gums, in milk, or use a tooth preservation product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Then, get to your dentist’s office right away.
