Finding the Perfect Dentist
Selecting
the right person to care for your family’s dental health takes
careful consideration. A good dentist combines clinical expertise
with warmth and a genuine concern for patients. Points to
consider:

  • Are your goals, concerns, and ultimate satisfaction seen as
    important?
  • Can you count on the dentist to focus on keeping your teeth
    health and strong?
  • Did the doctor obtain his degree from a well-respected
    school?
  • Does the dentist explain things in detail and include you as
    part of the team?
  • Has the dentist been in practice enough time for you to feel
    comfortable about your treatment?
  • Have you heard positive feedback about this doctor and
    practice?

Questions about General Dentistry

Why do I need to visit every six months if I don’t have
any problems?

Preventive care is less expensive than
repairing damage. Certain problems, like gum disease and early
signs of decay, offer few warning signs. Regular visits allow us to
monitor your oral health and catch any issues before they become
big trouble.

How is a filling different from a crown?
Made from composite resin, tooth-colored fillings replace decay
that only impacts a portion of the tooth. With severe damage, your
will likely need a dental crown, which fits securely over the
remaining tooth structure and completely covers the tooth.

When should my child first visit the
dentist?

Although the American Dental Association
recommends starting visits when children get teeth, usually at age
one, we often find that kids do best around three years old. At
this time, the doctor can take a look to make sure everything is on
target, and we can start to create positive feelings for your child
so that he or she will look forward to visiting the dentist.

I have metal fillings. Should I replace
them?

At one time, amalgam fillings were the
standard for restoring teeth. Now, most dentists prefer composite
fillings. These fillings match your natural tooth color, won’t leak
over time, and don’t contain any metal. If your old fillings aren’t
causing you problems, you can choose to leave them in place, but if
you want more aesthetic restorations, talk with your doctor about
composite fillings as a replacement option.
