Questions and Answers

Question: If I have dental work in place, is there something special I should be doing to take care of it? Will certain maintenance help me keep fillings, crowns, or otherwise for a longer period of time?

Answer: You don’t need to do something special. You need to continue with prevention as usual. Your brushing and flossing (and also your time spent with us for cleanings and checkups) will keep your work strong!

Question: How can I make sure something isn’t going wrong with my dental work? Is this something you can help me keep an eye on?

Answer: Yes. You can remember that your checkups that you schedule with our team twice a year leave this to us. We will examine every detail of your smile, fillings and more included.

Question: What if I can tell something is wrong with my dental work? Should I try to just live with it until my next regularly scheduled dental checkup with you or should I contact your practice right away?

Answer: If you suspect something is wrong with anything related to your oral health, come in. The sooner we take a look, the sooner we can fix anything that may be damaged or that requires care.
