I've recommended this place to friends and family too many times to count. I've always been happy with the care and service. It's top notch. I'm always welcomed by friendly faces. They aren't scared to tell you what you're doing wrong and happy to tell you what you're doing right. They care about your teeth. That's what you want in a dentist.

I went to a new dentist this morning and had a wonderful experience. The staff was super friendly. My dental hygienist, Danielle, did the best ever cleaning on my teeth, and I am very picky. I am sure you will love them and so will your kids. They have great facilitties that cater to your little cookie eaters.

I have been going to Northcutt Dental for the past five years and I love it! The staff and doctors are very friendly, it is very clean, and I use their dental assistance saving plan which is a great deal if you don't want dental insurance! I recommend this practice to everyone!

Another great visit at NDP! Dr. Havron filled a cavity that I had & Katie was her amazing assistant. The entire office was very accommodating to my two year old that tagged along with me. I've been a patient for 7 years & don't plan on going anywhere else!

I have an extreme fear of the dentist. Dr Havron was very understanding. She made my procedure which was a deep cleaning a very painless experience. All staff treat you like you are their best friend.

Barclay did a great, thorough job with a friendly disposition throughout. I will always ask for her and ask my mother and daughter to ask for her, as well.

Deep cleaning performed by a exceptional staff member (Barclay). Procedure was quick and painless in a clean, friendly environment.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the circumstances, there might not be a safe or effective alternative to dental implants that would not impact your health and quality of life. This is because healthy teeth are essential for maintaining a balanced diet and proper nutrition. In the case of a single tooth damaged from a cavity or infection, a dentist might opt to perform a root canal procedure to remove the infection while preserving the tooth itself. However, this operation often still requires replacing the top of the tooth with an implant known as a crown. In general, the best alternative to implants is preventing the need for them through proper oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing helps prevent tooth decay that can eventually lead to loss of teeth and other dental problems.
Start by looking into what is and is not covered under your health or dental insurance to understand and estimate costs. Then work with your primary dental care provider to understand treatment options and get recommendations for practitioners. You may also research oral and maxillofacial practices online.
Coverage of implant procedures varies depending on the specifics of your health or dental insurance. It may also depend on whether or not the implants are considered medically necessary as opposed to being an elective or cosmetic procedure. If you are a member of a Medicare health plan, most elective dental procedures are not covered. Medicare may cover some costs for procedures that involve dental surgery, like reconstruction of the jaw following an accidental injury or emergency surgery. Check with your health plan provider for information on how dental implant services are covered.
Full recovery from an implant procedure can take several weeks or months. Assuming the surgery is completed without any serious complications, patients are usually sent home within a day to recover. For the first day or two after surgery, patients are advised not to disturb the implant site or perform any kind of strenuous physical labor. Gauze pads will need to be periodically replaced to control bleeding for the first day or two. Pain medication to reduce discomfort and swelling is also prescribed for at least the first two weeks. Doctors will advise patients to avoid hard food, hot food or liquid, or use of a straw for the first days after the procedure. The best foods are purees and soups that require minimal chewing and can be eaten with a spoon. Patients may also need to rinse implant sites for a few days after surgery. Follow-up appointments within the first few weeks are often required to ensure recovery is progressing.
Those who perform dental implant procedures are known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These physicians are generally certified as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) as well as one or more special degrees for dental surgery or osteopathic medicine. Becoming a dental surgeon requires at least 12 years of academic and professional training in the United States, and requires certification with the state medical board. A general dentist with specific training in implantology can perform implant surgery, as well as certain specialists:
  • Prosthodontist – specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeon – specializes in dental surgery
  • Periodontist – specializes in periodontal (gum) disease
