  • Do All Wisdom Teeth Need To Come Out?

    A few people get by without removing them, but most people should have their wisdom teeth removed. That’s because those latecomers can lead to several dental problems such as misaligned teeth, bite problems, cavities, and gum disease. Thankfully, our dentists have the training, experience, and technology needed to make this procedure as pain-free as possible. You can even pick from three sedation options (inhaled, pill, or IV) so get rid of any anxiety about the treatment.

  • Do You Offer “Invisible” Braces?

    Adults deserve straight teeth as much as teenagers, but who wants metal braces? Here, you can get a modern orthodontic treatment called Invisalign. It’s a series of smooth, plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Because they are clear, they are all but invisible when worn. Even better, you can straighten crooked teeth and have the smile you deserve.

    You can also get clear ceramic braces, which are more affordable while still being “invisible” and hard to detect.

  • Do You Offer “Invisible” Braces?

    Yes! At our Edgewood, KY dentist’s office, you can get two kinds. Clear ceramic braces work like traditional braces, but it uses clear ceramic instead of metal so it’s much harder to see. But for a more discreet option, you can get Invisalign® instead. These clear plastic trays work great but are almost invisible when worn on your teeth. Both treatments will give you straight, even smiles.

  • Do You Offer Sleep Apnea Treatment?

    Yes, we do! Our dentists are trained to offer sleep apnea treatment so you can feel rested and refreshed. During a consultation, you’ll talk to one of our professionals about your symptoms and receive a thorough examination.

    If we feel you’re at risk for sleep apnea, we’ll order a Sleep Optima at-home sleep test, which will tell us more about your nightly sleep behaviors and whether you may benefit from a custom oral appliance for better rest and better health!

  • What Are My Payment Options?

    We accept cash, checks, and credit/debit cards including Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express.

We also offer our In-House Dental Savings Plan, which covers all preventive services and offers a 15 percent discount on cosmetic dentistry services for a very affordable annual fee.

  • What Is Gum Disease?

    Gum disease is a bacterial infection caused by plaque buildup between your teeth and under your gumline. It’s preventable and treatable in its early stages, but if ignored for too long, it can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth, and eventually, make them fall out.

    At Edgewood Dental Care, we do all we can to keep that from happening. Our skilled dentists use modern technology, such as digital X-rays and state-of-the-art dental lasers, to accurately detect and effectively treat gum disease.

  • What Are Dental Implants?

    Dental implants are long-lasting replacement teeth that restore the functions of your mouth to almost the same level as your natural teeth. We offer several implant solutions, from single-tooth to full-arch replacement, including immediate-load implants that give you new teeth in just one visit to our Edgewood, KY dentist office!
