  • Are your goals, concerns, and ultimate satisfaction seen as important?
  • Can you count on the dentist to focus on providing the best oral health care?
  • Has the doctor completed his or her degree from a well-respected school and has in-depth knowledge about the general oral problems faced in everyday life?
  • Does the dentist include you as a part of the team for explaining things in detail and help you maintain good oral hygiene?
  • How old is the dentist in practice? Do you feel comfortable with your future treatment?
  • Have you ever heard some good feedback regarding the doctor and practice?

Questions about General Dentistry

Why do I need to visit every six months if I don’t have any problems?
Preventive Dental Care is less expensive than repairing the damage. There are some certain problems, like gum disease that are warning signs of decay. Your regular visits allow your dentist to practice the perfect treatment for your oral health and make them aware of every issue before it becomes a big problem.

How is a filling different from a crown?
Tooth-colored fillings, that are made from composite resin, impact only a portion of the tooth. You will definitely need a dental crown in case of grievous damage, that will be fitted securely over the remaining tooth and it will completely cover your tooth.

When should my child first visit the dentist?
As per the American Dental Association recommendations, the first visit starts of the children is usually at age one, when he/she gets teeth. 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 general dentist.

I have metal fillings. Should I replace them?
Now, most dentists prefer composite fillings. The benefit of these fillings is that they do not contain any metal and match your natural tooth color without leakage. If you want aesthetic restorations and old fillings are not your problems then you can go with composite fillings as a replacement option.
