Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I schedule a check-up?
Annual check-ups and cleanings are the general standard for patients with good dental health. You should always be seen immediately if you have any type of swelling, pain or gum bleeding.
What should I do if I’m feeling pain in my tooth?
Ice packs and aspirin can often provide temporary relief until you can be seen, but remember that most dental problems will only become worse in time. Immediate treatment is essential!
What does it mean if my gums are bleeding?
Plaque buildup is the most common cause of bleeding gums, but it can also be an early sign of an advanced gum disease. We will gladly take a look and help you determine the ideal treatment.
What is the best way to whiten teeth?If you want to try over the counter whiteners look for the ones that have ADA on the package. Professional teeth whitening systems are available at most dental offices and there are many to choose from. It's best to talk with your dentist and pick the best option for your individual needs.
What causes bad breath?
Many things cause bad breath, food, smoking, chew, coffee along with poor dental hygiene. These will lead to health problems and oral infections.
Do I really need to floss my teeth?
The short answer is yes. Plaque builds up and hardens into tartar which can widen the space between your teeth and gums, causing pockets. Over time the gum line pulls away and your teeth will loosen.
Do teeth need fluoride?
Fluoride will make teeth stronger and prevents tooth decay. Leading health and medical organizations agree such as the CDC, The American Academy of Pediatrics and American Dental Association.
What are Implant Cost?
Please contact one of our offices to find out what your dental insurance will cover. Today there are many options of affordable dental implants.
Are electric tooth brushes better than manual tooth brushes?Both are equally effective provided you brush your teeth properly for two minutes. An electric tooth brush will help if you have arthritis, can remove more plaque than a manual tooth brush and will decrease your risk of gum disease.
Can my teeth be fixed for a better smile?
Yes, cosmetic dentistry has come along way. Caps and crowns can cover problem teeth along with veneers and bonding.
