Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Marysville, WA

If You Have Dental Questions,
We’ve Got the Answers!

We want you to have all of the information necessary to make the best decisions for your smile, which is why we’ve collected and answered some of the most common questions that we receive from our patients below. If you do not see what you are looking for, just call our dental office!

Do you see children?

Of course! We are dedicated to treating whole families and patients of all ages, including infants, toddlers, adolescents, teenagers, adults, senior citizens and everyone who falls somewhere in-between. Our lengthy menu of dental services truly has something for everyone, and we look forward to helping you feel right at home whenever you visit.

If I am interested in dental implants, will I need to see a separate specialist?

Not at all, unless you want to be put to sleep. Dr. Ludu has undergone advanced surgical training and numerous continuing education courses in the art of implantology, and he will be happy to surgically place your new dental implant(s) right here in our dental office. This means that patients can go through every step of achieving a newly recompleted smile in the same, comfortable environment they already know and trust.

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes, we do. Our dentists have been treating dental emergencies in the Marysville area for well over 20 years now, and we will make every effort to see and care for patients in need right away after we receive their call.

Dental care makes me nervous. Can you help me relax?

At Allen Creek Family Dentistry, helping patients feel comfortable and at ease is truly one of our highest priorities. That is why we offer oral conscious sedation, which is a prescribed medication that can alleviate stress or anxiety you are experiencing and create a much calmer atmosphere throughout your appointment. We also regularly use The Wand, a modern technology that delivers numbing anesthesia to the mouth in a carefully controlled and virtually painless fashion, for patients requiring root canals or surgery.

Can you improve the way my smile looks?

Yes! Our dentists understand very well that a more confident appearance can improve the quality of our patients’ lives in many ways. That is why we offer several cosmetic dentistry services that can correct common smile flaws including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and more.

Will you take my insurance?

Our dental office will accept most insurance plans and file claims on your behalf in order to maximize your available benefits. To learn more about your financial options, please visit our new patients page or call the dental office today.
