Frequently asked Dentistry Questions
Do I need to visit the dentist twice a year?
The American Dental Association recommends twice a year dental checkups and teeth cleanings as the best way to keep teeth healthy and maintain natural smiles for a lifetime.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal (gum) disease occurs when plaque or tartar buildup infects or inflames gum tissue. Left untreated, periodontal disease breaks down jawbone and gum tissue slowly eroding your smile’s supporting structure.
Should I wear a mouthguard every time I play sports?
Absolutely. Patients should wear an athletic mouthguard during every sporting event, even minimal contact sports like biking or surfing. Ask us about comfortable, custom sportsguards during your next visit.
Does teeth whitening work?
In most cases, professional in-office or at-home teeth whitening effectively brightens smiles up to ten shades. To find out whether or not you can brighten your smile, schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation today.
