What are my options to replace missing teeth?

We offer bridgework, dentures, and dental implants to replace missing teeth. Learn more about these options on our services page, then call for a consultation. With X-rays, intraoral photos, and a thorough assessment of your dentition, we can help you decide which replacement option is best for you.

What can you do to improve the appearance of my smile?

We’ll start by evaluating your oral health, existing smile, and discussing your idea of a spectacular smile. We may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, replacement teeth, and replacing metal dental work with esthetic restorations. Call 440-647-2650 to schedule a consultation, and together, we’ll determine the best road to your ideal smile.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Absolutely. Modern teeth whitening uses safe and effective bleaching gel to melt away stains and discoloration. We offer in-office bleaching as well as convenient take-home teeth whitening kits.

My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?

Bleeding is usually a sign of a problem. When gums bleed, the cause usually stems from the patient brushing too hard or from early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis. We can consult with you on the proper toothbrush and pressure for safe, effective daily oral care. If your gums show signs of gum disease, we may recommend a deep hygiene treatment to stop the disease and return your gums to good health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults, and it has been linked to many overall health conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and respiratory problems. Untreated, gum disease can escalate to create significant damage to your health, so call for an assessment now. We will help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life!

I haven’t been to the dentist in years, and I’m ashamed to let you see the condition of my mouth. Is your staff judgmental?

First of all, congratulations on your wise decision to prioritize dental healthcare. Your mouth is a big part of your overall health, quality of life, and self-esteem. We’ll never judge you. Instead, we’ll help you by addressing your oral problems, explaining treatment options, then scheduling a plan of action that suits your schedule and your budget.

Do you take my insurance?

We work with most insurance companies and accept assignment of benefit. As a courtesy, we will file all paperwork on your behalf. We do not accept managed care (HMO, DHMO) plans, but we do work with some PPO plans. If you have questions, please ask us.

What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?

Payment is due at time of treatment. For certain procedures, we offer payment plans to fit your dental care comfortably into your budget. Please ask us, we are happy to discuss the various options available. We accept MasterCard and Visa, as well as personal checks. If you prefer deferred payments, we are pleased to offer several plans through CareCredit. Call 440-647-2650 for more information or visit www.carecredit.com.

Do you care for children?

One of the most important things we do is to make sure children get a healthy dental start in life. We understand a dental visit can be scary to some children and do everything to ensure a fun comfortable visit.

Dr. Glor of course will check for cavities, but there is so much more. He will check for the eruption of the permanent teeth. The development of the upper and lower jaws is also evaluated and the developing bite is examined.

Dr. Glor is great with children; he has three of his own. As a parent you can relax knowing your child is getting excellent care and that time will be taken to answer all of your questions.

What can I expect during a typical first visit?

First of all, thank you for choosing Dr. Glor for your oral healthcare. We are pleased and honored to have you as our patient.

Your first visit will take about an hour, so please schedule accordingly. To start we will take a detailed history, this will help us get to know you. A comprehensive dental exam will follow, which includes screening for oral cancer, gum disease, bite abnormalities, tooth decay, and problems with existing dental work. If your gum tissues are healthy we may be able to professionally clean your teeth at this appointment. We may also take X-rays and photos of your mouth. The dentist will use all of this information to determine what the dental treatment you need. However if there is an immediate concern we will address it first.

We will explain our findings and recommendations so that you can make informed decisions about your care. If you have questions, please ask. The more you know and understand, the more comfortable you’ll be with your treatment plan. If you have questions about insurance or financing, our administrative staff will be more than happy to assist you.
