Replace Your Missing Teeth

If you have lost some of your natural teeth, you may face a number of struggles, including a lack of self-confidence and a greater risk of oral and overall health problems. Our dentists are ready to help you remedy such issues. We are proud to offer state-of-the-art dental implants, which closely imitate the structure of natural teeth and leave you with replacements that are virtually indistinguishable from your original, formerly healthy dentition. For your convenience and peace of mind, we are able to provide every stage of the implant treatment process right here at New Haven Dental Group.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Restore Damaged or Missing Teeth

When a natural tooth is damaged or missing, it may be difficult for you to enjoy your favorite foods or smile with confidence. Thankfully, our Woodbridge dental office offers several high-quality restorative solutions for rebuilding strong, aesthetically pleasing dental structures, including customized crowns and bridges. Dental crowns protect weakened or damaged teeth, restoring their structure and function. Bridges can fill in gaps left by lost teeth and provide sturdy, long-lasting replacements.

Orthodontic Braces & Invisalign®

Correct Dental Misalignment

If you are ready to say goodbye to crooked or gapped teeth, schedule a consultation with our team. Through orthodontic treatment, we may be able to improve the health, appearance, and function of your teeth; such services are available for patients of almost any age. Many patients benefit greatly from traditional metal braces. However, if you would prefer not to wear brackets and wires on your teeth, you may also be good candidates for Invisalign®, which uses clear, comfortable aligners to reposition teeth.

Budget-Friendly Dental Payment Options

At New Haven Dental Group, we understand that families are concerned about the cost of dentistry. That is why we work with patients and their dental insurance plans to best maximize their benefits. Each patient receives a treatment plan, with associated treatment cost before they leave the dental office. No unpleasant “surprises.” If you do not currently have dental insurance, we accept the Essential Dental Plan, which gives patients a significant discount on all dental services for a low annual fee. We also partner with CareCredit for affordable financing options.

Commonly Asked Questions, Answered!

If you’re looking for answers to your specific questions and concerns quickly, calling our office will be the best way to get them. Still, some people would rather do research online first, or your schedule might be busier than usual. That’s okay! We’ve taken the time to compile some of our frequently asked questions from patients in Woodbridge about our services and what you can expect. Read on to learn more or reach out to our office if you wish to schedule an appointment.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Firstly, call our team if you suspect you have a dental emergency. You’ll be able to receive instructions on your next best steps to treat your situation. Remember, however, that you’ll need to head to your local ER right away for any life-threatening conditions like a broken/dislocated jaw, excessive bleeding, and trouble swallowing/breathing. They may not be able to address dental cases, but they can at least keep you safe and pain-free until we can see you.

At our practice, we offer same-day emergency appointments so that you can get the care you need as soon as possible. In most cases, a dental emergency is an indication of a bigger underlying oral health problem, so it’s best to visit your dentist routinely to help you avoid an urgent situation as well as save money.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost in Woodbridge?

The cost of a dental checkup and cleaning can vary based on different factors, including geography and a patient’s dental health. That said, the average market for these visits across the United States is typically around $200 and $350. This is because your appointment will involve a thorough review of your health/dental history and a discussion about your concerns and smile goals. We’ll also take X-rays, provide professional teeth cleaning, and perform an oral cancer screening. If you have dental insurance, you might expect the majority or all of the cost of a checkup and cleaning to be covered depending on your plan and what the dentist negotiated with your provider.

How Much Does it Cost to Get a Tooth Extracted Without Insurance?

On average, the price of tooth extractions will usually range between $150 and $400 in markets across the United States. The exact amount will depend on various things, such as a person’s oral health and their location. You might also expect additional fees based on the difficulty of the tooth extraction process. Furthermore, wisdom teeth extractions tend to come with a higher price as they sometimes require specialized services from an oral surgeon. Fortunately, Dr. Mir has extensive experience in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, meaning you’ll be able to undergo treatment from a team you already know and trust instead of needing to go to a separate location for your procedure.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Keep in mind that dentistry is mostly about prevention, so you’ll want to practice oral hygiene every day and visit your dentist biannually to minimize the cost of caring for your smile. If you have dental insurance, our team is in-network with several providers, that way you’re more likely to make the most of your benefits while improving your oral health. Even if you aren’t insured, we offer alternative options for helping you work within your budget, such as the Essential Dental Plan which provides discounts on various services, and CareCredit which helps you finance your procedures with monthly payments. You should also keep an eye out for our special promotions that can help you save money on different treatments!
