Frequently Asked Questions
What causes black lines under crowns?
Do you see children?
Yes! Whole families are the heart of our Jacksonville, FL practice, and we’re happy to offer services for patients of all ages, including treatment options designed specifically for your youngest loved ones. We provide gentle exams and cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride applications, and much more!
What are my options for tooth replacement at your office?
Tooth loss can be a devastating event, but it doesn’t have to be a permanent one. At Dental Center of Jacksonville, Dr. Jignesh Patel offers several reconstructive services that can give you back your complete, confident smile. In most cases, we will recommend dental implants as the ideal solution because of their seamlessly unique structure and valuable benefits for your oral health. We’re even able to personally take you through the entire dental implant procedure right here in-office, avoiding the need for a time-consuming outside specialist. Alternatively, custom dentures and dental bridges are also available for patients in need of a faster, more cost-effective option.
Truthfully, no one dental treatment is the perfect choice for every patient. Our team will be happy to sit down with you and discuss your current level of oral health and personal goals before recommending an option that fits your situation best.
I want to straighten my teeth. Do I need to visit a separate orthodontist?
Not necessarily! Patients with minor, aesthetic-focused orthodontic concerns may be able to achieve the dazzling results they need with Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, which our doctors offer right here in-office. Contact us today to schedule your first consultation!
Do you see emergencies?
We do. Our practice is always open to emergency walk-ins, and our doctors will do everything in their power to provide relief as soon as possible for dental injuries and/or severe oral pain.
What are the most common forms of dental disease?
Dental care makes me nervous. Can you help?
Yes! Sedation dentistry options are available for patients who need a little extra help feeling comfortable during their dental care here in Jacksonville. Depending on the severity of your condition, our doctors will recommend nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and/or prescribed medication. Our goal is to help you stay pain-free and fear-free!
Will you take my insurance?
We accept most PPO insurance plans, and our team will be happy to file the necessary paperwork on your behalf to save you time and ensure that you receive the benefits you’re entitled to. To learn more about your payment options, visit our new patients page.
