Dr. Lalonde recommends that patients with healthy teeth and gums schedule a routine appointment every six months. We will clean your teeth and assess for dental disease, oral cancer, tooth decay, and other potentially serious problems. By finding trouble in the early stages, we can often correct problems with conservative treatment. Patients with periodontal problems (gum disease) may need to visit us more frequently; we will advise you how often depending upon your condition. Call our Los Fresnos office today to book your next checkup.
Swollen and bleeding gums may indicate early signs of periodontal, or gum disease. Because these symptoms are generally mild, many people ignore them and the disease progresses. In fact, gum disease is the number-one cause of adult tooth decay. If you notice that your gums bleed after you brush, or if they are red, swollen, or tender, contact our Los Fresnos office to make an appointment.
As a family and children's dental practice, we treat patients of all ages. Dr. Lalonde encourages moms and dads to bring in their little ones starting at six months. This first visit helps build a solid foundation for a lifetime of healthy oral habits and regular dental visits. Short and easy appointments as toddlers helps make children far less apprehensive as they get older. Call our Los Fresnos dental office for more information.
If you have an emergency after hours, call the main line where you will be given an emergency number. Dr. Lalonde is more than happy to take phone calls after hours- he knows how painful a sore tooth can be! Also, we welcome walk-ins during regular office hours.
Dental care can get expensive, so we help patients maximize their insurance benefits. Our practice files in-network claims with Delta Dental, MetLife, Aetna, CHIPS, Medicaid, and many other insurance carriers. As an out-of-network provider, we will file your insurance claims and accept assignment of benefits. Please call our Los Fresnos dental office with your questions.
To cover your portion of treatment, we accept cash, check, and most major credit cards. Payment plans are available through CareCredit for qualified applicants.
NO, all dental labs are NOT equal. Dentists partner with dental labs to provide services and products to patients that are not commonly made in a dental office. Dental labs are responsible for fabricating crowns, bridges, implant crowns, and various denture types. Just as the quality of dental providers can vary, so too can the quality of dental laboratories. A dentist can choose to use a local lab, utilize high end labs in other states, or even ship to a foreign lab in another country.
At Los Fresnos Dental Center, Dr. Lalonde has made the choice to partner with only the best dental labs available in the United States. Our team knows that you expect the highest quality care and continuing our partnership with the country’s best labs ensures you’ll receive only the best. We routinely utilize labs in California, Arizona, and Utah where cutting edge advances in dental technology are allowing for amazingly beautiful and strong results. The attention to detail delivered by the best labs results in more compelling, life-like restorations that will last longer and perform better.
Many insurance companies have limited the types of procedures for which they will pay. Oftentimes, this means the patient is forced to receive the most economical type of filling or crown. For example, you may want to place a white filling, but your insurance will only pay for a metal filling. Or you might prefer the natural beauty of a porcelain crown, but your insurance will only pay for an all metal crown. At Los Fresnos Dental Center, Dr. Lalonde has developed a practice that does not compromise beauty and quality in order to place the cheapest restoration. Our practice is focused on providing true excellence in dental care, which means we have made a commitment to use the best materials regardless of what insurance dictates.In order to provide you with the highest quality, longest lasting dental restorations, Dr. Lalonde has adopted the following policies:
