01

How often should I get a dental checkup and cleaning?

The American Dental Association recommends having your teeth professionally cleaned at least once every six months and visiting your dental office twice a year for a regular checkup.

When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check-up?

It is recommended to take children to the dentist for the first time after the eruption of their first tooth, normally between the age of 6 months and one year.

03

Do you offer tooth-colored fillings?

Yes, they are called resin fillings, they are performed in one day.

04

What causes sensitive teeth?

There are many reasons why a patient develops sensitive teeth.  Common scenarios that can create sensitive teeth are:

  • Tooth decay.

  • Tooth erosion due to teeth grinding. 

  • Cracked Tooth

  • Receding gums can be caused by a variety of reasons, from improper tooth brushing to periodontal disease.

05

What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?

There are three main ways to replace teeth: Dentures, Bridges, and Dental Implants.

Partial dentures are like orthodontic retainers, usually carrying one or two teeth. 

Another option to replace a missing tooth is a dental bridge. Bridges are usually fixed, stable, and feel like natural teeth.

Dental implants are the best possible alternative for replacing a missing tooth. Dental implants are artificial roots for teeth, which are attached to the jawbone before adding crowns. As implants are attached directly into the jawbone is a procedure with long-lasting results.

06

Should I tell my dentist I have diabetes, high-blood pressure or any other conditions?

Yes, people with diabetes, high-blood pressure and any other health conditions require special care when it comes to dental procedures. Even if you write it down on your file, it’s highly recommended to inform us at every appointment about your condition and the medications you may be taking.

07

Do you offer conscious sedation?

Yes. Even though local anesthetic is applied when dental treatment is required, if you prefer to be sedated we can arrange it for you. We work with certified anaesthesiologists.
