How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
Every patient is different, but most people should visit the dentist for routine dental cleanings and exams about every six months. If you’re receiving gum disease treatment, we may recommend more frequent visits until the infection is under control.

Will I Be Able to Get Dental Implants?
Though you’ll need to be assessed by one of our dentists, you can likely get dental implants from Just Smiles. We place implants at our Hilliard location and restore them at both locations. Since several members of our team have received advanced implant training, we perform all kinds of dental implant procedures, including All-on-4®, a procedure during which a complete arch of replacement teeth is attached to four implants. We also perform oral surgery procedures that help strengthen your jaw for implants, like bone grafts and ridge augmentations.
If I Don’t Have Dental Insurance, How Can I Pay for My Care?
While insurance can help pay for your dental care, it can also be a hassle with waiting periods, deductibles, and other red tape. We offer a Just Smiles Dental Plan as an insurance alternative. For a flat annual fee, you’ll receive cleanings, exams, and other preventive care as well as a 20 percent discount on our other services. You may also be able to get financing from third-party providers like CareCredit. Low-interest and no-interest payment plans are usually available.
Why Don’t You Use Metal Fillings?
Whenever possible, we use non-toxic, environmentally safe materials for our dental restorations. They offer beautiful esthetics, with no tell-tale dark spots in your smile. They are durable, last many years, and are less likely to cause cracking or other structural damage to your teeth. Since they don’t contain mercury, we believe they are also better for your long-term health.
