Frequently Asked Questions for a General Dentist
Q: How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
A: We suggest you see a general dentist twice a year for dental cleanings. It is crucial plaque is regularly removed from the teeth to avoid cavities and gum disease from forming in the mouth.
Q: How Can I Improve My Smile?
A: We understand how important it is to have a beautiful-looking smile; after all, a smile is the first thing a person will see. We offer many services to help improve your smile and feel more confident, such as braces, Invisalign treatment, removable retainers, aligners, and more.
Q: Are Braces Better Than Invisalign?
A: Both braces and Invisalign are used to correct crooked teeth. Braces are more for children between the ages of 7-14, while Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers. Invisalign treatment might not look better, but it is more comfortable and does not interfere with daily activities or eating habits like braces. A dentist will be able to help you decide which option is best for you and your teeth.
Q: Do I Need Dentures to Replace Missing Teeth?
A: Not necessarily; a dental implant can be placed if you have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. A dental implant will require surgery and adequate care to ensure it will last a long time.
Q: What Does It Mean If I Have Severe Tooth Pain?
A: Tooth decay is the most common cause of dental pain. A bacterial infection can spread throughout different parts of the tooth and gum tissue, causing severe pain. When feeling tooth pain, it is essential to see a general dentist to perform diagnostic tests to find the root of the problem.
