For more information on your FAQ in Johnson City or to schedule your visit, call 607-304-3993.

Should I choose dentures or dental implants?

Dental implants are strong and dependable solutions for replacing missing teeth. If your jaw isn’t strong enough to support them, Dr. Farrell may offer smaller versions or even enhance your jawbone so you can receive the implants. Dentures can also replace your teeth, and some patients prefer them for a variety of reasons. Dr. Farrell creates beautiful dentures that will help you smile with more confidence. He’ll provide all the information you need to keep them in great shape over the years. Dr. Farrell will guide you in the best direction for your smile, whether that’s dental implants or traditional dentures.

How else can I straighten my teeth besides braces?

Metal braces have a bad reputation, and Dr. Farrell understands why. Though we offer traditional metal braces in the most comfortable fashion, we also provide Invisalign orthodontics. These clear, removable aligners gently straighten your teeth faster than traditional braces and are nearly impossible to notice.

Can you help if my kids don’t want to visit the dentist?

We certainly can! Our friendly staff makes all family members feel comfortable and welcome during each visit. Dr. Farrell is an excellent storyteller who will always make your young ones happy to visit. Through genuine care and gentle family dentistry, we will ensure your children don’t have to deal with dental anxiety later in life.

Is a toothache considered a dental emergency?

Yes, a toothache is considered a dental emergency. We don’t want you to be in pain any longer than necessary, which is why we do all we can to fit you in as soon as possible. We can get you out of pain as well as treat the underlying cause of your toothache. You’ll also find many other restorative dental services for problems that require emergency care, such as a broken or knocked-out tooth. If you or someone in your family is dealing with a painful toothache or another dental problem, call 607-304-3993 for an appointment.
