Asked Dentistry Questions

If you have other questions that we haven’t addressed here, we invite you to contact us, and we’ll help however we can!

Do I really need to come in for a checkup and cleaning every six months?

The American Dental Association recommends that you see a dentist twice a year to have a dental exam and cleaning. Along with your at-home oral hygiene routine, these appointments are critical for keeping your mouth protected against harmful bacteria. During this visit, Dr. Pogue carefully examines your oral cavity for any signs of trouble—even at the earliest stages of development. Finding and treating these issues sooner rather than later can spare you from experiencing painful, damaging problems down the road. Also, we thoroughly clean your teeth, removing stains and built-up plaque and tartar. If it has been a while since you’ve had this routine appointment, call our dental office today!

How long will I have to wait in the waiting room?

At Pleasant Valley Dentistry, we do our utmost to keep our appointments on time. Our team works efficiently and work within our schedule so that every patient receives the high-quality, personalized attention they deserve without causing delays.

Can you help me with my sleep apnea?

Absolutely! Dr. Pogue can give you a custom-made oral appliance that repositions your jaw to keep facial tissues from obstructing your airway. This simple, comfortable treatment can help you finally get restful sleep and feel more energized throughout the day. Contact our Bettendorf dental office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pogue to get started.

Do you place dental implants?
