Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Marlboro, NJ
Giving Our Patients the Answers They Need
Patient education is one of the most important parts of dentistry. It’s important to know as much as possible about the different services we use to take care of your teeth as well as how to recognize serious oral health issues. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions we get every day. Do you not see what you’re looking for? Give us a call!
How Often Should I Get a Dental Checkup and Teeth Cleaning?
People of all ages should receive at least two dental checkups and teeth cleanings every year, which helps prevent small problems from turning into larger ones. This can also lower the risks of cavities and gum disease forming in the first place.
I Don’t Want Braces; How Else Can I Straighten My Teeth?
Ask us about Invisalign! This is an alternative way to correct crowded and spaced teeth in adults and teenagers who are worried about appearances. Invisalign aligners blend seamlessly into the smile, can be removed while eating, and often offer faster results than traditional braces. We can determine whether Invisalign is a good option for you during a consultation.
How Can I Get Rid of Stains on My Teeth?
The teeth whitening treatments available at the store tend to be lacking when it comes to removing stains from your enamel. However, our dental office offers Sapphire whitening – a professional-grade treatment that can get rid of the intrinsic stains beneath your enamel. You can choose between an in-office version and an at-home take-home kit based on your preferences.
How Should I Replace My Missing Teeth?
The traditional solution is to replace the tooth or teeth in question with a bridge or denture. Today, however, there is a way to replace the entire dental structure including the roots: dental implants. We can perform dental implant surgery in-house to replace any number of teeth with prosthetics that have the strength and stability of real teeth.
Can I Bring My Child to Cambridge Square Dental?
