Frequently Asked Questions
What are digital x-rays?
Digital x-rays are a win-win for you, our office, and the environment! They use 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays, and they allow us to instantly display, zoom in, and enhance the results. No more squinting at a confusing film. Plus, they eliminate the developing process, vastly reducing both time and waste. They can be easily sent to a specialist, and can be printed on demand.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry blends a solid commitment to oral health and functionality with a focus on aesthetics. We will ensure that your teeth are as strong, healthy, and beautiful as they can possibly be.
What is a dental deep cleaning?
Also known as scaling and root planing, a dental deep cleaning is most often necessary if several regular cleaning appointments in a row are missed. It is designed to combat gum disease by removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and the pockets between the teeth and the gums.
How often should I see the dentist?
Most people should see the dentist twice per year for a cleaning and check-up. If you are prone to tooth decay or gum disease, you might need to see the dentist a bit more often. If you need extensive dental work, you might need to visit as often as weekly for a short period of time, and then two to four times a year after that. Your dentist will tell you how often you need to visit based on your own unique situation.
What should I expect at my first appointment?
Your first appointment is our chance to get to know you, and your chance to get to know us. We will perform a full screening, including a head and neck check, oral cancer screening, and digital x-rays. You might need additional services as well, depending on your history and what we find.
Please be sure to bring your dental insurance card, a list of your current medications, and detailed information about past dental procedures. We like to work as a team with each patient, so please feel free to ask all the questions you like. If you have any conditions that need treatment, we will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and goals.
