FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I really need X-Rays once a year?
Yes, having X-rays taken once a year can prevent small cavities from turning into a larger problem. X-rays show cavities between the teeth that can not be seen just by looking in the mouth.
How often should I have my teeth cleaned in a dental office?
It’s recommended to have your teeth cleaned once every 6 months, unless advised otherwise by your Dentist and/or Hygienist.
Why is my tooth sensitive?
Sensitivity in teeth can be caused by many things, including cavities, fractured teeth, worn fillings, brushing too hard, bleaching your teeth and even gum disease. If you wince during eating or drinking, call our office today.
If I place an Aspirin placed next to a tooth will it help a toothache?
No; by placing an aspirin next to a tooth that is giving you discomfort, it can cause a sore on the gums as the medication can burn the gum tissue. It is better to take an over the counter pain medication and contact your Dentist.
What can I do to replace a missing tooth/teeth?
There are several options to replace a missing tooth/teeth: implant, bridge, or partial denture. An oral exam could determine which option is best for each individual person.
