Frequently Asked Questions
Is it really true that a dentist can treat my sleep apnea?
In many cases, yes! If you’ve been diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and/or you’ve proven intolerant to traditional CPAP treatment, don’t hesitate to give Dr. Moreau and the rest of our team at MoreSMILES a call. Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition diagnosed by a physician and we work directly with your physician to provide safe and effective treatment without a CPAP. If you're not sure if you have sleep apnea, call us today to schedule a no charge consult to screen for sleep apnea. Some signs to look for are drowsiness during the day, frequent urination at night, snoring, waking up feeling like you haven't had a good night's sleep. We offer customized oral appliance therapy, which helps reposition the jaw to allow for easy, uninterrupted breathing and quality rest throughout the night at last.
I have constant jaw/facial pain. Can you help me?
This kind of discomfort is a common symptom of TMJ disorder, a potentially debilitating disorder that’s related to the misalignment of a patient’s jaw/bite. As a trained neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Moreau will work hard to find the root of your condition instead of relying on temporary relief measures, providing revitalizing, lasting correction through a number of non-surgical therapy options.
Will I need to see a separate doctor to have my dental implants placed?
Not at all. at MoreSMILES, our doctors are proud to offer comprehensive dental implant treatment that includes their surgical placement right here in-office for maximum convenience and comfort. We even utilize the state-of-the-art Galileos 3D cone beam scanner for precise planning and highly successful results.
Is there a way to rebuild my damaged/missing teeth faster? I don’t want to have to wait through multiple appointments.
With CEREC technology, the traditional multiple appointments once associated with new dental crowns and other restorations has now been simplified down to a single visit. Dr. Moreau and the rest of our team will design the addition, send it to our in-house milling unit for crafting, and place it within your smile – no temporary restorations or messy physical impressions required. Better yet, your new restoration will still have plenty of lifelike, enduring quality to enjoy.
Can your team help improve the way my smile looks?
Definitely. Patients from Covington, LA and all over Louisiana can enjoy our wide variety of available cosmetic dentistry services, from teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding to more advanced procedures like Invisalign® Clear Braces and Botox/Juvederm dermal fillings. We even offer a complimentary smile analysis right here on our website! After you’ve completed the short survey, our team will get in touch with you to schedule an in-office consultation.
Do you see dental emergencies?
Yes. We make every effort to see emergency cases as soon as possible, and our emergency dentistry page offers helpful first-aid tips. If you are a patient of record, after-hours services are also available to you – contact us right away!
How can I pay for my dental care at your office?
At MoreSMILES, our team will file insurance paperwork on the behalf of our patients to maximize their available benefits, and low-interest financing is available as well. Please visit our new patients page to learn more.
