Pacific Avenue Dental PC

 

Limited Dental Warranty

Our practice is proud of the dentistry that we provide for you and your family. Our goal is not to just correct any dental problems 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 upon your continuing home care of your teeth and gums, regular professional exams, cleanings and fluoride treatments. The products recommended by us for you and the frequency of those professional recare visits depends on your individual condition. Those visits may be every 2, 3, 4, or even 6 months apart depending on your oral health. With that in mind we offer the following limited dental warranties:

 

Dental Sealants

Sealants are plastic coatings placed on the chewing surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay in the pits and grooves of the teeth. These are the most common areas to get cavities. Floss and use of fluoride will help prevent decay between the teeth. We will repair or replace sealants for a period of 2 years after placement. If decay is present on the chewing surface, the replacement filling will be done at no charge. You must keep the prescribed regular recall appointments in order to maintain this warranty (minimum every 6 months); you must also complete all other treatment prescribed by your Pacific Avenue Dental dentist in order to maintain this warranty.

 

Composite (Tooth Colored) Fillings

If a composite restoration is the recommended treatment of choice, we will replace or repair it in the event of failure for a period of 2 years following the procedure. If the tooth breaks and requires a crown or onlay during this same time period, we will credit the cost of the filling towards the crown or onlay. You must keep the prescribed regular recall appointments in order to maintain this warranty (minimum every 6 months); you must also complete all other treatment prescribed by your Pacific Avenue Dental dentist in order to maintain this warranty.

Root Canals

Root canal treatment is about 96% successful. They do occasionally fail. If you loose your tooth within 2 years of the procedure due to failure of the root canal, we will compensate accordingly. You must keep the prescribed regular recall appointments in order to maintain this warranty (minimum every 6 months); you must also complete all other treatment prescribed by your Pacific Avenue Dental dentist in order to maintain this warranty.

 

Crowns, Bridges, Inlays, Onlays, and Porcelain Facings

We will warranty these most comprehensive procedures for a full 2 years. We will replace or repair them at no charge during this two year period if they break, are lost, or decay with normal use (this does not include accidents that could break normal healthy teeth). You must keep the prescribed regular recall appointments in order to maintain this warranty (minimum every 6 months); you must also complete all other treatment prescribed by your Pacific Avenue Dental dentist in order to maintain this warranty.

 

Dentures and Partial Dentures

We will warranty dentures and partials for a period of 2 years if a tooth chips or breaks, or a flange breaks under normal use. This warranty does not cover accidents such as dropping your dentures. 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 appointments in order to maintain this warranty (minimum every 6 months); you must also complete all other treatment prescribed by your Pacific Avenue Dental dentist in order to maintain this warranty.

 

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, fluoride and prescribed products. The second key to success is regular professional examinations, cleaning, x-ray films and fluoride treatment (2, 3, 4, and 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 a lifetime.
