FAQs

If my teeth look and feel fine, then do I still need to visit the dentist?

Even if your teeth look and feel fine, we still urge you to visit the dentist. Most problems are not seen or felt right away. To eliminate future problems, we recommend regular visits.

Why is visiting the dentist important?

Good oral health is the gateway to keeping your body healthy. Visiting the dentist regularly allows your dentist to catch problems early on.

How can I take care of my dental health between my dental checkups?

Proper brushing and flossing at least twice a day are key to good dental health. Proper diet also benefits your dental health.

Do root canals hurt?

Root canals are a common procedure our dentists perform on patients. Before the procedure, your dentist will completely numb the affected area to reduce your pain. Unfortunately, some level of discomfort and sensitivity is common in the days that follow your procedure.

Do tooth extractions hurt?

Tooth extractions are also a common procedure with our patients. Our dentists provide patients will anesthesia so completely avoid pain during the procedure. Similar to root canals, discomfort and swelling are to be expected in the days that follow your procedure.
