Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do to improve my smile's appearance?

Dr. Marracino has helped many patients achieve a whiter, straighter, more attractive smile with cosmetic dentistry. His considerable experience providing aesthetic solutions to dental problems has honed an expert touch and an artistic eye. If you would like to enhance your smile, he may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or cosmetic restorations such as tooth colored fillings and crowns. In some cases, the desired result requires a combination of treatments to produce a complete smile makeover. The smile of your dreams isn't just a fantasy--it can come true with cosmetic dentistry! Call our Texarkana dental office to schedule a personal cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Marracino.

How can a dentist cure headaches?

In some cases, headaches are caused by TMJ disorder, or TMD. When the temporomandibular joints are misaligned, associated muscles become over stimulated and irritate nerves. The irritation can cause pain, including headaches and migraines. Dr. Marracino has been trained in craniofacial disorders like TMJ, so they offer effective diagnosis and treatment.

Will your practice file my insurance?

Yes! We are in network with some providers and file out-of-network claims, as well. Coverage for specific treatments varies by insurance plan, and it's the patient's responsibility to know exactly what his or her dental insurance plan covers. We do provide an estimate for your treatment, and financing plans are also available. Please visit our new patients page for details.

Does your office treat children?

Yes, we love kids and welcome the opportunity to help your children build a firm foundation for good lifelong oral health. However, if your child is extremely apprehensive, it is sometimes best to see a pediatric dentist who specializes in treating children. See our family dentistry page for more information.

How often do I need to visit the dentist?

We recommend patients visit our office two times each year for dental checkups. These regular appointments give us the opportunity to partner with patients to keep their smiles whole and healthy.

Can dentists help with sleep apnea?

Our team offers custom oral appliances for those patients who are suffering from sleep apnea. These comfortable, portable appliances gently shift the jaw keeping the throat clear and allowing the patient to sleep soundly.

Does your office treat emergency patients?

We are happy to accept patients experiencing dental emergencies. In many cases, we’re able to offer same day treatment. If we’re unable to see you on the day you contact us, we’ll be happy to walk you through at-home care over the phone.
