Frequently Asked Questions:
Is a Dental Cleaning worth it?
So, if you were wondering, “Are regular teeth cleanings necessary?” the answer is yes. It’s important to visit the dentist or hygienist so that they can remove tartar between teeth which helps prevent a host of additional overall health problems.
Is a root canal painful?
No, root canals are usually painless because dentists now use local anesthesia before the procedure to numb the tooth and its surrounding areas. So, you should feel no pain at all during the procedure. However, mild pain and discomfort are normal for a few days after a root canal is conducted.
Is tooth extraction painful?
While you shouldn’t experience pain, you may feel a slight pressure as the tooth is being loosened and extracted. You might also hear a snapping or creaking sound. This is perfectly normal, as the tooth and its socket are both hard tissues.
What is the difference between a dentist and a cosmetic dentist?
A general dentist cares for the basic dental needs of your whole family, while a cosmetic dentist concentrates more on the aesthetics of the patient’s smile. Both cosmetic and general dentists can fill a cavity.
What is the downside of dental implants?
The risks and complications you are taking for dental implants include infection, damage to other teeth, delayed bone healing, nerve damage, prolonged bleeding, jaw fractures and more. If you are willing to take these risks, dental implants might be right for you.
