Got a Dental Question? Just Ask

At Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC, we’re happy to answer any dental questions you may have. You can call us at 219-641-3422, visit our Crown Point, IN dentist office, or submit questions via our handy online form.

We’re always happy to hear from you! In the meantime, we’ve answered some frequently asked questions for you below.

  • Q: Can I get dental implants?
    A:

    Our dentists will use modern dental technology like panoramic imaging to determine whether you’re a candidate for dental implants. One requirement for implants is a strong jawbone. But we’ve got options for you even if your jaw lacks the required bone density. We can perform a bone graft to encourage bone growth, or we may be able to use mini dental implants.

  • Q: Can I schedule an appointment during the weekend?
    A:

    Yes! We’re open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. We also offer extended hours during the week because we know how tough it can be to make time for dental care, especially if you’re booking appointments for multiple family members.

  • Q: Do you have solutions for straightening teeth?
    A:

    Yes! We offer orthodontic treatments for all ages. Your choices include traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and Invisalign. We also can provide fixed and removable retainers after your treatment to keep your smile straight and beautiful.

  • Q: What are my tooth replacement options?
    A:

    We offer multiple tooth replacement options. For a single missing tooth, we can use a dental crown attached to a dental implant, or we can recommend a dental bridge. To replace multiple missing teeth, you can get a dental bridge or partial dentures. And full dentures can replace an entire mouthful of missing teeth. We can attach dentures to dental implants for added security.
