Frequently Asked Questions

Regular dental check-ups are crucial because they help maintain good oral health. During these visits, we can detect early signs of problems such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. Early detection allows for easier and less invasive treatments. Regular cleanings also remove plaque and tartar that you might miss at home, preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

It's generally recommended to visit the dentist every six months for a check-up and cleaning. However, some people might need more frequent visits due to specific dental issues or a higher risk of gum disease. Your dentist will advise you on the best schedule based on your individual needs.

A dental filling is used to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When you have a cavity, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the area is cleaned. Then, the cavity is filled with a material such as composite resin to restore the tooth's structure and function. Fillings help prevent further decay and maintain the tooth's health.

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars) to prevent cavities. They are especially beneficial for children and teenagers, who are more prone to cavities in these areas. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants. Sealants act as a barrier against food particles and bacteria.

If you have a dental emergency, such as severe tooth pain, a knocked-out tooth, a broken tooth, or a lost filling, contact our clinic immediately. It's important to address dental emergencies promptly to prevent further damage and alleviate pain. We will provide instructions on what to do and schedule an appointment as soon as possible to treat the issue.
