Frequently Asked Questions

At Kirlough Family Dentistry, we want all of our patients to feel confident and well-informed when it comes to their own dental care. That’s why our team has taken the time to compile several of the frequently asked questions we receive most often below, along with their answers. If you’ve already read through this page and still haven’t found the information you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Do you see children?

Absolutely – our commitment to families is right there in our practice name, after all. We enjoy making ongoing dental care convenient and enjoyable for patients of all ages, including children who are just starting to learn the importance of a healthy, happy smile. We offer several kid-friendly services that will give their teeth the best start possible, including dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and more.

I’m missing teeth. What’s the best way to replace them?

Every patient’s needs and priorities are different, and Dr. Kirlough will be happy to help you explore all available options for tooth replacement so that you decide on the one that best fits your personal situation. That said, dental implants will most likely be his top recommendation. This state-of-the-art service successfully replicates every part of the natural tooth structure, providing valuable, lasting health benefits in addition to outstanding durability and cosmetic value.

Will I need to see a separate specialist for dental implants?

No – Dr. Kirlough has the advanced training needed to provide every stage of treatment (including the surgical placement of the implant(s) themselves) right here in our Cleveland area practice, saving you valuable time and helping you stay comfortable with a dental team you already know.

Can I straighten my teeth without metal braces?

You can! Our practice offers Invisalign®, which uses clear, removable aligners instead of the traditional bracket-and-wire system. This means patients can improve their smiles in a nicely subtle fashion without having to make any frustrating changes to their diet or oral hygiene routine at home. Interested? We’d love to see you for a consultation and help you determine if you’re a good candidate for this transformative procedure.

I’m afraid of the dentist’s office. Can you help?

Of course. Several sedation services are always available upon request to help patients feel genuinely relaxed throughout their appointments, including nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and oral conscious sedation. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you feel you could benefit from sedation during your next procedure – your comfort is always a top priority for our team!

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes! We will always do everything in our power to accommodate severe dental injuries and/or pain as soon as possible. In most cases, same-day appointments are even possible for optimal convenience and much-needed relief. All you have to do is call.

What are your dental office hours?

We understand how busy your schedule can be, especially if you’re juggling the various activities of several loved ones in addition to your own. That’s why Kirlough Family Dentistry offers extended evening hours several days a week! Here is our full schedule:
