Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q. What is a bridge?
    A dental bridge also uses dental crowns to restore your smile, the only difference is that a bridge is also designed to replace missing teeth. The bridge contains one crown on either end with an artificial tooth or teeth in the middle. These crowns are placed over healthy, neighboring teeth to hold the bridge in place
  • Q. What is an Implant?
    dental implant is a small “anchor” made of titanium. It is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After osseointegration , or when the surrounding bone has attached to the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant.
  • Q. What are dental bridges side effects?
    Dental bridge side effects are generally rare. Like any procedure that involves your gums, there a risk of gum infection or inflammation, but that is rare. Your dentist will also consult with you prior to the procedure to assure you don’t have allergies to the materials being used.
  • Q. What do orthodontists do?
    Orthodontists are dental specialists who diagnose and treat problems with the position, alignment or spacing of the teeth, and related irregularities in the face and the jaw. We use a number of special treatments, including braces and other oral appliances, to correct these problems.
  • Q. How long does tooth whitening last?
    Typically you can expect whitening to last from six months to two years, although some studies report results lasting up to 10 years. Avoiding red wine, coffee, and smoking—all of which can cause staining—helps preserve the results.
  • Q. Benefits of Root Canal Therapy Versus Extraction
    The single most important benefit of root canal therapy is that you keep your tooth. Extraction may lead to other dental problems. For instance, drifting of teeth, bite problems, TMJ discomfort, and the need to treat adjacent teeth that do not otherwise need dental treatment in order to restore the missing tooth. No matter how effective modern tooth replacements are – and they can be very effective – nothing is a good as your natural tooth.
  • Q. Can I eat something before my surgery?
    If you are going to be sedated for the oral surgery procedure, you should not eat or drink anything at least six hours before your surgery. If you are going to have local anesthesia for your procedure, you may eat normally prior to your appointment.

  • Q.Do tooth whitening toothpastes really work?
    Teeth whitening toothpastes seem to be popping up everywhere and you've got to wonder if they really work.      
                 
    Whitening toothpastes, like all other toothpastes, contain mild abrasives to remove surface stains. Teeth whitening toothpastes may have additional polishing agents and special chemicals that are more effective against stains than regular toothpastes. While whitening toothpastes can make your teeth appear a little lighter, by getting rid of stains, they do not actually bleach your teeth.      
                 
    Teeth whitening toothpastes are ideal for people who smoke, drink coffee and tea and eat certain foods that can stain your teeth. Teeth whitening toothpastes are also good to use after you have undergone a teeth whitening procedure to keep surface stains from building up on your teeth.

  • Q. How Often Should I Change My Toothbrush?
    Adults and children should change their toothbrush every 3 months because they become worn out and are not as effective as they once were. Exceptions to this would be if you were using an electric toothbrush, and the manufacturer states otherwise. Some electric rechargable toothbrushes have very good brush heads that only need to be changed every 6 months. If you have gum disease, you should change your toothbrush every 4 - 6 weeks because bacteria can harbor in the bristles. You should always rinse your toothbrush out with hot water after every use and change it after you have been sick.

  • Q. Why do I need my root filled tooth crowned?
                
    Your tooth is more likely to suffer from a fracture than a tooth which has not been root filled. The reason for this is that a lot of the internal supporting dentine has been removed to allow the root filling to be placed. Putting a crown on your tooth is one way for your dentist to protect the tooth from fracture.

    What are my options if my root filled tooth is infected?

         Every individual case is unique but in general terms the following factors are usually relevant: The tooth has a poorer long term outcome due to the failure of the existing root filling. Attempts at redoing the treatment can be successful but the success rate is lower than if the tooth was being root filled for the first time.    
                 
          Depending on your tooth your dentist will offer the following options: to have the root filling replaced or to have the tooth extracted and then to think about possible replacements such as a dental implant or bridge.
