1. Do you treat children?
Yes! We see patients of all ages, including children. We provide pediatric patients with preventive and restorative dental care.
2. Do you see same day emergency patients?
Yes. We do our best to accommodate emergency patients on the same day. Dental pain or broken teeth often cause the patients to call their dentist. Depending on the situation, the treatment could involve extraction of the tooth or a root canal, a crown, or some form of restorative treatment, or prescription of antibiotics to create an environment conducive to subsequent treatment.
3. Can you restore broken or chipped teeth?
Yes, depending on the location and size of the tooth fracture, the treatment can range from smoothening of the rough edge, or a small restoration or a crown.
4. What is Scaling and root planing (Deep cleaning)?
Sometimes, hard tarter deposits accumulate below the gum line, causing inflammation of the gums and bone loss. The regular cleaning process cannot eliminate the tarter debris. Hence the infected area is anesthetized and curetted so that all the tarter is removed and bone health is restored. Timely treatment saves the further loss of bone and possible loosening of teeth.
5. What is Bruxism and how is it treated?
Clenching or grinding of teeth, especially at night time can cause considerable stresses on the TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) and surrounding muscles causing soreness of those muscles and joints. Night guard is the treatment of choice.
6. What kind of tooth brush should I use?
There has been lot of debate on electric versus manual tooth brush. The short answer is the brush that suits you the most and gets the job done is the right choice for you. The ultimate aim is to get rid of all the plaque and have the ability to reach all the areas of the mouth. There is no substitute for brushing and flossing. Your individual preference will dictate the choice between manual vs. an electric brush or a conventional floss vs. a water flosser.
7. What insurances do you take? Do you have any payment plans? Do you have any subsidized rates for uninsured patients?
