General Dental Treatments Q&A

Read answers to popular questions many patients have about our general dental solutions:

Why do I need a custom sports mouthguard?

Compared to store-bought sports mouthguards, custom-made professional mouthguards offer a better fit. Ill-fitting mouthguards can fall out during sports games. Sports mouthguards that fit properly can protect the teeth and braces from damage. Our custom-made sports mouthguards also make it easier for patients to communicate with their teammates and easily drink water or sports drinks.

Is dental sedation safe for children?

Yes, we will often recommend general anesthesia for children. Nitrous oxide and oxygen are safe to use on children for oral surgery, including tooth extractions. Our dental professionals use the appropriate amount of sedation to keep children relaxed and ensure pain-free treatment.

Why do I need my wisdom teeth removed?

In most cases, we will need to remove the patient’s wisdom teeth. This is because wisdom teeth easily become impacted. Impacted teeth do not have enough room in the mouth to emerge properly. As a result, wisdom teeth can damage the back molars and cause overcrowding. Sometimes, wisdom teeth can grow at odd angles. Removing wisdom teeth can prevent tooth pain and damage to the natural teeth.

What are dental emergencies?

A dental emergency is an oral health problem that requires immediate professional care. Common dental emergencies include toothaches, lost permanent teeth, and excessive bleeding. Our dental team can fix emergencies to prevent further damage to the smile. However, if you have a medical emergency, we ask that you visit the hospital first. We can fix any dental problems that you have sustained after you receive professional medical care.

Can my children and I both receive dental care in one visit?

Yes, for the convenience of our patients, we can help them schedule dental visits that allow each member of the family to receive care. We also help parents schedule time early in the day or after school for their children. Our team knows that parents and their kids can lead busy lives, which is why we work with patients to find the best time for dental care.
