How often should I get a dental check up and cleaning?

The American Dental Association recommends having a professional dental cleaning at least once every six months.

When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check up?

It is recommended to take children to the dentist for the first time after the eruption of their first tooth, normally between the age of 6 months and one year.

Do you offer tooth-colored fillings? Can they replace my old metal fillings?

Yes, they are called resin fillings. They are performed in one day and are priced at $40 USD. If you have metal fillings that you want to replace, there will be no extra charge for removing them.

What causes sensitive teeth?

There are many reasons why a patient develops sensitive teeth. Using special toothpaste may help control the sensibility, but it will not solve the problem. Common scenarios that can create sensitive teeth are:

  • If you have a tooth decay.
  • Tooth erosion due to teeth grinding; this can damage the enamel and create a bigger problem in the future if it's left unattended.
  • A cracked tooth can also create sensitive teeth.
  • Receding Gums, this can be caused by several reasons; from incorrect teeth brushing to a periodontal disease.
  • Teeth whitening (sometimes); depending on the technique used by the doctor, teeth whitening can leave your teeth sensitive for a couple of days.

What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?

There are several tooth replacement options. One of the options consists in fabricating a partial denture to replace the missing tooth. Partial dentures seem like orthodontic retainers, usually carrying one or two teeth. The denture may also be attached to other teeth using wire clips.

Other option to replace a missing tooth is a dental bridge. Bridges are usually fixed, stable, and feel like natural teeth. Exceptional bridges would fit properly as if there were no missing teeth. However, the dental bridge has the disadvantage of compelling the patient to treat with two, otherwise healthy teeth, apart from the extracted/missing tooth.

Dental implants are the best possible alternative for replacing a missing tooth. Dental implants are artificial roots for teeth, which are attached to the jawbone before adding crowns. The titanium implants merge biologically with the human body. Titanium is the metal that dentists rely on because of the compatibility with human bones and tissues. Dental implants fit in missing teeth positions and cause no grinding of neighboring teeth. They can be used as replacement of multiple teeth, and are not limited in life span. The implants are also fixed and feel just like normal teeth.

Why do I need a mouth guard?

Mouth guards are used to protect your teeth from bruxism (teeth grinding), and are a great way to protect your crowns and implants by avoiding extra pressure on them.

Should I tell my dentist I have diabetes?

Yes, people with diabetes require special care when it comes to dental procedures. Even if you write it down on your file, it’s highly recommended to inform your doctor at every appointment about your condition and the medications you may be taking.
