Your dental plan is designed to share in your dental care costs but will not cover the total cost of your treatment. We are an insurance independent practice which allows Dr. Sebastian to diagnose and treat according to our patients needs alone.
We're happy to help you maximize your benefits. Once you have paid for your care, we will complete your forms and provide any additional documentation needed to have your claim processes efficiently. Your insurance provider should send your benefit check directly to you, usually within 2-3 weeks.
You can choose from:
- Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express
We offer a 5% courtesy accounting adjustment to patients who pay for their treatment with cash/check prior to completion of care for treatment plans of $500.00 or more.
Springstone patient financing and CareCredit is here to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn’t cover. We offer No Interest* financing or low minimum monthly payment options so you can get what you want, when you want it.
Now you don’t have to worry about saving up for the procedures you want and need. With Springstone and CareCredi the decision’s in your hands to get what you want, when you want it. For more information or to apply online, visit Springstoneplan.com or Carecredit.com.
Facilities and Equipment
"We stay on the forefront of technology as a benefit to our patients who deserve only the best," says Dr. Sebastian. "Technology cannot replace the personalized attention and great care we provide each patients, but it can make their visits pleasant and comfortable."
- Orthophos XG (3-D Dental Imaging System)
The newest equipment and the latest in dental technology to offer the best care to our patients in our office is the Orthophos. The Orthophos is a dental CT scan which provides us with 3-D data to help with improved patient diagnosis. You are seated in an open environment and the procedure can be done in our office, which means no trips to the hospital. The scan takes 20 seconds and gives off less radiation and costs less than medical CT scans.
- Neuromuscular Dentistry
The muscles in your temple and forehead area play an important part in the way your jaw is positioned and how your jaw closes. If your bite is not right it could lead to abnormal tension in these muscle, a possible cause of tension headaches. The bite remains tense for long periods of time if not corrected and the muscles do not get a chance to rest which leads to poor circulation and pain.
The K-7 allows Dr. Sebastian to evaluate the state that the muscles are in as well as other factors that may be affecting the bite. The K-7 is a computer which helps Dr. Sebastian measure and study the full range of motion of the jaw in three dimensions. The computer records where your jaw is being held in relation to the upper teeth and can measure the activity of the muscles that control the jaw in its relaxed position as well as its functional positions. Dr. Sebastian then can use the K-7 to determine if your bite is in its optimal position, rather than relying on your current bite position as being the best bite for you.
- DEXIS - Digital Radiography
Dexis digital x-rays are an extremely progressive addition to our dental office. Digital x-rays are computer generated images. These images require up to 75% less radiation than with convention film type x-rays. X-ray projections appear on computer monitors within a few seconds in full view. The computer allows enlargement, highlighting, magnifying, inverting, clear viewing, and contrasting of x-ray photos, so that you can view your teeth at the same time.
- DIODE - Soft Tissue Laser
We acquired our first laser six years ago and vote it the best technology to benefit our patients thus far. Prior to owning one, we used to refer many patients to periodontists and oral surgeons for surgical procedures performed with a scalpel which would cost more and require days or weeks to heal. Today, with our laser, we can perform many soft tissue surgical procedures in-office with very little or no bleeding and very little or no post-operative pain. Because of this, restorative procedures may also be performed on the same day.
Other uses for our laser include: elimination of canker sores, gum disease treatment, gum plastic surgery, preparation prior to mold taking for crowns and bridges, removal of muscle attachments and many more. Once again, the benefits to you, the patient, are in the increased quality of care received and painless techniques the laser provides.
- Laser Detection of Cavities
Finding cavities using an "explorer" has not changed much since the 1800's. Using this technique, many cavities are found at very late stages where large fillings or more expensive inlays and onlays are necessary. Sadly, nearly 20% of children between 2 and 3 years old have tooth decay and 80% of young people have had a cavity by age 17. New techniques and protocols needed to be developed to detect disease earlier and arrest the decay. The newest technology available is a laser fluorescence cavity detector called the Diagnodent, available in our office. A light is shone on the teeth and fluorescence emitted by decay is quantifiably measured and found in very early stages such that fillings may not be necessary and simpler sealants may help arrest the decay and preserve tooth structure.
We are pleased to offer our patients CEREC restoration services – a superior method of creating precisely-designed, color matched and highly durable ceramic restorations right in our office. From simple fillings to full crowns, CEREC delivers the results you need in a single appointment.
