Frequently Asked Dental Questions
Do I have to visit the dentist two times a year?
We highly recommend that patients visit us at least every six months. These checkups make it possible for us to diagnose and treat oral health concerns in the earliest possible stages and help you prevent many common dental health conditions.
Should I consider dental implants?
Any patient who has lost one or more teeth, should consider dental implant-supported tooth replacement solutions. Implant posts mimic the supportive root system of teeth, making implant posts feel and function more like natural teeth.
Does teeth whitening work?
Teeth whitening from the professionals in our Marlton, NJ dental practice offers much more predictable results compared with store bought teeth whitening kits that promise dramatic results, but usually don’t deliver them.
What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
Contact us right away. Our practice has emergency time built into our schedule each day in order to accommodate urgent needs. We do our best to see emergency patients as soon as possible, and also offer helpful advice to follow until the emergency dentistry appointment.
I get nervous at the dentist. Can you help?
We treat every patient with kindness and offer gentle care. The patient is always in control of the appointment, and our team communicates with the patient throughout the treatment to assure comfort. For those patients who need a little extra help staying calm and free from pain, we also provide complimentary nitrous oxide dental sedation.
What does it mean to be mercury-free?
Traditional silver fillings and other dental restorations contain a large amount of mercury. Overtime, the cumulative effects of mercury toxins can be detrimental to your health. While the research is still not completely conclusive, we choose not to use any amalgam or other metal restorations that contain mercury in order to ensure our patients' safety.
