We want to make the process easy for you and show you that we can be the right fit for you and your family. Below are some of the most frequently asked dental questions that we’ve been asked by patients in the past. Take a look at our responses, and if you still need more information about our dental office, feel free to contact our friendly team!

Do I really need to come see the dentist twice every year?

At Poway Valley Dental Group, we recommend that you have a dental checkup and cleaning every six months. Why? This appointment is an opportunity for Dr. Sepe to identify any problems early on it their development when they are much easier—and less expensive—to treat. In addition, our hygienists can remove accumulated plaque and tartar, preventing harmful bacteria from causing tooth decay or infection in the future.

My jaw hurts. How can you help?

You may have a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), where the jaw joint is out of alignment or has unnecessary stress in the muscles around it. Regardless of the cause, Dr. Sepe can diagnose and treat TMD with various techniques and oral appliances so that you can get relief from your jaw pain and keep your smile strong.

Do you place dental implants?

Yes, we do! We can handle every step of the dental implants process right here in our Poway dental office from placement to final restoration. You won’t need to visit specialists’ offices because we have an experienced specialist in Dr. Sepe. Call to learn more about dental implants!

Do you treat children?

Absolutely! From the time that their first tooth erupts, you can start bringing your child in for checkups. Our team members will help your child feel welcome and have a positive experience in our dental office and start them on the path toward lifelong oral health. As they grow, we can provide the services they need to keep their smiles healthy, including traditional braces, wisdom teeth extractions, and more.

I’m always tired, and I snore. What can you do to help me?

You may have a condition called sleep apnea, which can increase your risk of high blood pressure and a cardiovascular event, including heart attack and stroke. Once you’ve been officially diagnosed, Dr. Sepe can treat you with a custom-made oral appliance that repositions your jaw and keeps your airways open while you sleep.

Do you take my dental insurance?

To make our services more affordable, we accept most dental insurance plans and are in-network with several dental insurance companies, including Delta Dental, Cigna, and United Concordia. To learn more about using your benefits, call our team.
