Oral Health FAQs
Learn more about our office and your own dental health with answers to these frequent questions:
Do you treat dental emergencies?
Yes, we treat patients with broken restorations, missing permanent teeth, toothaches, and more. In the event of a dental emergency, please contact our office. If you have sustained dental damage from a medical emergency, we ask that you receive care in a hospital first. We can offer our dental services after your medical care.
What does it mean if my gums bleed when I brush my teeth?
If your gums bleed when you brush and floss, then you may be brushing with too much force. If you brush and floss gently, then you may have gingivitis or gum inflammation. Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease and is marked by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Contact our office if you have noticed bleeding gums so we can provide the right treatment for your needs.
Can I receive multiple cosmetic treatments to makeover my smile?
Yes, our dental office can straighten, brighten, and repair patients’ smiles with our cosmetic dental treatments. If you have multiple cosmetic dental problems that you want to treat, we can help. We offer Invisalign to realign misaligned and crooked teeth. Our customized take-home whitening treatments can brighten the tooth enamel by multiple shades. Porcelain veneers and dental bonding treatment repair tooth chips, cracks, and wear.
What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?
We recommend dental implants and implant-supported restorations for patients with one or more lost teeth. Implants support the health of the teeth and gums by restoring teeth at their root. Dental implants fuse with the jaw bone, becoming a part of a patient’s smile. Patients can receive implant-supported dental bridges, dentures, and single dental implants for their missing teeth.
