LIMITED DENTAL WARRANTY
Our practice is proud of the dentistry that we provide for you and your family. Our goal is not to simply correct any dental problems that you may have, but to show you how to prevent dental disease in the future to save you time and unnecessary expense. The long term success of the dental treatment we provide for you depends on your continuing home care of your teeth and gums, regular professional exams, cleanings and fluoride treatments in our office. The products recommended by us for you and the frequency of those professional recare visits depends on your individual condition and is professionally diagnosed. Those visits may be every 3, 4, or 6 months apart depending on your oral health. With that in mind, we offer the following limited dental warrantees:
COMPOSITE (tooth colored) FILLINGS: If the composite is the recommended treatment of choice, we will replace or repair it in the event of failure for a period of 3 years. If the tooth breaks and requires a crown or onlay, we will credit the cost of the filling towards the crown or onlay. YOU MUST KEEP THE PRESCRIBED REGULAR RECALL APPOINTMENTS OR THE WARRANTY IS NULL AND VOID (MINIMUM EVERY 6 MONTHS).
ROOT CANALS and IMPLANTS: Root canal treatment and implants are about 96% successful. They do occasionally fail due to anatomical complexity and may require an additional fee and procedure by an Oral Surgeon. If you lose your tooth within 3 years do to failure of the root canal or implant, we will refund the fee, or apply it as a credit towards a replacement tooth. YOU MUST KEEP THE PRESCRIBED REGULAR RECALL APPOINTMENTS OR THE WARRANTY IS NULL AND VOID (MINIMUM EVERY 6 MONTHS).
DENTAL SEALANTS: Sealants are plastic coatings placed on the biting surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay in the pits and grooves of the teeth (you must floss and use fluoride to prevent decay between the teeth). We will repair or replace sealants for a period of 3 years after placement. If decay is present on the biting surface, the necessary filling is free. YOU MUST KEEP THE PRESCRIBED REGULAR RECALL APPOINTMENTS OR THE WARRANTY IS NULL AND VOID (MINIMUM EVERY 6 MONTHS).
CROWNS, BRIDGES, INLAYS, and ONLAYS AND PORCELAIN FACINGS (VENEERS): We will warranty these most comprehensive procedures for a full 5 years. We will replace or repair them at no charge during this five year period if they break, are lost or decay with normal use (This does not include accidents that could also break normal healthy teeth). YOU MUST KEEP THE PRESCRIBED REGULAR RECALL APPOINTMENTS OR THE WARRANTY IS NULL AND VOID (MINIMUM EVERY 6 MONTHS).
DENTURES AND PARTIAL DENTURES: We will warranty dentures and partials for a period of 3 years if a tooth chips or breaks, or a flange breaks under normal use. This warranty does not cover accidents such as dropping or loss/misplacement of your denture. Full upper and lower denture patients must be seen once every 12 months. PATIENTS WITH SOME OF THEIR OWN NATURAL TEETH MUST BE SEEN AT THE PRESCRIBED RECALL APPOINTMENT OR THE WARRANTY IS NULL AND VOID (MINIMUM EVERY 6 MONTHS).
NOTE: As you can see, we are confident of the durability of our treatment as prescribed for you. The primary key to your long term success is spending a few minutes a day on your home care, brushing, flossing, and fluoride and prescribed products. The second key to success is regular professional examinations, cleanings, X-ray films and fluoride treatment (3, 4, & 6 month intervals depending on your condition). This warranty does not cover accidents that cause damage to the teeth or dental prosthesis. FAILURE TO HAVE THESE REGULAR VISITS WITH OUR OFFICE VOIDS ALL WARRANTIES. Help us to help you maintain your teeth for your lifetime.
