- Why do I need to visit the dentist if I don't notice any problems?
You don't have bleeding gums, bad breath, or tooth pain, and we want to keep it that way! At your regular dental visits, we remove tartar buildup that you simply can't reach with a toothbrush or floss. We will also examine your gums and look between your teeth. Sometimes, small problems like fractures or early-stage gum disease don't manifest until they've reached an advanced phase. Regular dental visits can prevent the need for a filling, crown, replacement tooth, or gum surgery in the future. In addition, regular dental visits will help remove surface stains and freshen your breath -- who doesn't want that?
- Do you see patients who are afraid of the dentist?
Absolutely. Patients can feel ashamed about their fear or the condition of their teeth. We have a special interest in helping people who haven't had access to dental care. Our non-judgmental team will respect your personal needs, and we offer oral conscious sedation, as well as nitrous oxide, to encourage a relaxed visit.
- Why don't you place metal fillings?
Metal fillings were popular about a decade ago. Nowadays, we have an alternative: composite resin (white) fillings. Metal fillings are made with mercury, which is a known neurotoxin. While there is some debate surrounding the health hazards of mercury fillings, we prefer not to gamble with our patients' heath. White fillings contain no metal or mercury, and they can be matched to the existing tooth color.
