Also, you’ll find our answers so that you can have a more well-informed baseline when it comes to understanding more about dentistry.
Will it hurt to receive dental implants?
No, it should not hurt to have dental implants put into place. Instead, you will receive local anesthesia to help numb your mouth so that you feel nothing while each post is properly positioned and placed. Once the procedure is complete, you can expect that the anesthesia will wear off, but you can take prescribed medications or an over-the-counter pain reliever to minimize the discomfort.
How long will my cosmetic dentistry results last?
It depends. Most cosmetic dental treatments are not meant to last forever; however, they can last for many months or years. No matter the type of treatment you receive, it’s important that you adopt healthy habits of all kinds, including a good oral hygiene routine, a healthy diet, proper mouth protection if you grind your teeth or play sports, and avoidance when it comes to eating ice and sugary or starchy items.
Will you see me the same day if I experience a dental emergency?
Yes, we will be happy to see you the same day if you have a dental emergency. Our team will do our very best to get you in as soon as possible so that we can get you out of pain and off to feeling and looking better than before.
Can my children receive dental care at your office?
Yes! We are pleased to see children and teenagers in dental care. This means that they, too, will receive the same great service and care that you do. Our team of professionals is skilled and equipped to offer compassionate and kid-friendly services that are designed to boost appearances by eliminating decay and cavities.
What kinds of tooth replacement solutions are available?
We currently offer dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants for anyone who is dealing with missing teeth.
