Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

We often get questions about the dentistry services we offer at Chittenango Family Dental. Dr. Badawy and his team are always ready to help and answer your questions when they come up, but we also understand that you may not have time to ask in person or contact our dental office. That’s why we’ve prepared a list of the most common questions our dental office receives for your convenience. If there’s more you’d like to learn, we’d be more than happy to inform you in the best way we can. Simply give our dental office a call!

Do you handle dental emergencies?

Not only do we try to work around patient schedules whenever possible, we try to get you in our office the same day that your emergency occurs. Our office is open at 7 a.m. Monday through Thursday, so in the event that you can’t get to our office, it’s easy to get scheduled for an appointment and get your issue handled first thing in the morning.

How long does it take to get a crown?

If you need a permanent crown, whether it’s during a dental emergency or because of extensive decay, our E4D same-day crown system makes that process easy as well! No longer do you have to wait two weeks just to have a crown designed and fabricated. In as little as one hour, your permanent crown can be customized and created the same day that you need. As a bonus, there’s no need to use the gray, putty-like impression material you may be used to.

Can I straighten my teeth at your office?

Through revolutionary treatments like Invisalign® and ClearCorrect®, it’s easy to straighten teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. Each series of aligners is custom-made to treat your specific needs, whether it be mild to moderate levels of crowding, rotated teeth or an uneven bite. They are even removable, so you don’t need to change your oral care habits, diet or appearance to go through treatment.

I have sleep apnea. Can I receive treatment?

Yes you can! Our office can create a custom-made appliance designed to reposition your jaw and reduce oral obstructions that cause sleep apnea. We’re proud to say that we partner with the top sleep physicians in the area to get your condition diagnosed and treated. Those who already use a CPAP machine can also use an oral appliance in tandem with their current treatment.

Do you accept my insurance?

We are in-network with most PPO dental insurance plans, so chances are if you have dental insurance, we accept it! Of course, we’ll also file claims on your behalf even if we do not currently take your insurance plan. If you have a different method in mind to finance your dental care, feel free to give us a call or take a look at our dedicated patient page.
