Do you offer sedation dentistry options to help with anxiety?

We certainly do! Our team wants to enable everyone to get the treatment they need for a healthy smile. Dr. Addy is able to offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. In addition, if IV sedation is needed, we can have an anesthesiologist come to our dental office to help patients with severe dental anxiety or phobia. Let us know how we can make your experience with us more comfortable!

What options do you provide for replacing missing teeth?

Depending on your needs, we can place restorations for your missing teeth ranging from fixed, multi-unit crowns and bridges to implant-retained dentures. During your consultation with Dr. Addy, he can review your treatment options and help you pick the one that will best meet your needs.

Can you help me get a smile makeover?

Absolutely! No matter what’s holding your smile back from being radiant and confident, we’ll resolve the issue with efficient, effective treatment. In fact, your dream smile could be much closer than you think! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Addy to learn more about your treatment options.

Do you accept my dental insurance?

We accept most PPO plans and are in-network with many dental insurance providers. To know whether we are in-network for your specific plan, we invite you to contact our dental office. We can help you understand your benefits and maximize them to your greatest advantage.

I’m experiencing a dental emergency! Can you help me?

Our team at Carlsbad Beach Dental is available to help you as soon as possible. Regardless of the cause, we can provide the care you need to relieve your pain and get you back to oral health. For a badly decayed or damaged tooth, Dr. Addy can skillfully perform root canals. Is the damage severe? We may need to extract the tooth, but our restorative options can return your smile to its former glory in no time.

How is your dental office space unique?

Our dental office is located in a converted house. As a result, the environment feels very comfortable, as if you were visiting a family friend, instead of the typical dentist’s office. We invite you to come experience the difference. We’re confident that you’ll immediately feel more relaxed with us than with other dental offices. Dr. Addy and our team also practice with a gentle touch, so you stay at ease throughout your entire visit.

How do you practice dentistry for total body wellness?

Dr. Addy has received advanced scientific training in helping with oral-systemic problems, including sleep apnea and issues with jaw pain (TMJ). What happens in your mouth can impact your overall well-being and impair your quality of life. Treatment with Carlsbad Beach Dental, Drew Addy DDS, helps you keep your oral and overall health in check.
