Q: How does Invisalign work
Invisalign is made up of a series of clear plastic aligners that are changed out to provide gradual, comfortable teeth alignment. We recommend that the aligners are worn at least 22 hours each day, but they are removable for eating, cleanings, and for special occasions. Visit our service page to learn more about Invisalign.
Q: I’m missing one tooth – how can I replace it
Our office offers many different teeth replacement options. While many of our options are used to replace multiple teeth, we do offer an option for replacing single teeth. We can use a dental implant to beautifully and reliably replace a single missing tooth. Dental implants are inserted into your gum to create a solid foundation for your replacement tooth. Visit our service page to learn more about dental implants.
Q: How can I help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay
Aside from regular professional cleanings and exams, the most important thing you can do to prevent disease and decay is to take care of your teeth properly at home. Proper hygiene includes brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled brush, flossing once per day, and following any other home health care instructions your dentist provides. Learn more about how our general dentistry services and family dentistry options can help you.
Q: When Would I Need a Root Canal?
Root canal therapy is needed whenever an infection or abscess is present at the root of the tooth. We need to remove the infection because it can weaken the tooth and/or possibly spread to healthy nearby teeth. Root canal therapy is the process of cleaning out the inner part of the tooth and filling it. Once the root canal therapy is finished, it should be restored with a restoration to keep the tooth functional for years to come. Our root canal therapy is gentle and successful (In fact, about 98 percent of all root canals are a success)!
