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!
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.
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.
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.
You can! Our practice offers ClearCorrect, 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.
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!
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.
