Some Frequently Asked Questions:
Q) What if I have an emergency?
A) Please call our office as soon as you determine that you have a dental emergency. We will be glad to work you into our schedule if you have a dental emergency during regular business hours.
Q) What does “painless dentistry” mean?
A) Painless dentistry is a means of ensuring your total experience in our office is as stress-free and pain-free as possible. We will discuss treatment options that may require no local anesthetic and whenever possible, alleviate pain by the means most comfortable to you.
Q) What should I expect during my appointment?
A) One of our staff members will compile your medical and dental history during your first visit. We will then examine your teeth and gums, screen for oral cancer, take x-rays of your teeth as needed and complete a TMJ (jaw joint) exam. After we review your dental profile, we will discuss a diagnosis with you and your options for treatment to help you determine the best plan to fit your needs.
During regular follow-up visits we will examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, do hygiene maintenance and make plans for treatment as needed. We will discuss any pain or problems you may be experiencing and answer any questions you may have.
Q) How often should I see a dentist?
A) As per the Canadian Dental Association: “How often you go depends on your oral health needs. For many people, this means a dental exam every six months. Your dentist may suggest you visit more or less often depending on how well you care for your teeth and gums, problems you have that need to be checked or treated, how fast tartar builds up on your teeth, and so on”.
Q) When should I take my child to see a dentist for the first time?
A) 1 years old is the recommended age to start bringing your child to see the dentist. It’s important to make sure that your child’s first dental experience is a positive one and that visiting the dentist is crucial in maintaining proper oral health.
