Frequently Asked Questions About Our Oakhurst Dental Practice
What is included in a dental cleaning?
Dental cleanings go hand-and-hand with comprehensive oral exams, in which your dentist evaluates the health of your teeth and gums. A dental cleaning includes removing large pieces of plaque and tartar with an ultrasonic device, then using a hand tool to manually clean any remaining deposits. Your teeth will be flossed and then polished, creating a smooth surface that makes it more difficult for new plaque deposits to form. If needed, a fluoride treatment will be provided to strengthen your enamel and prevent cavities.
Can dental implants be done in a day?
Some types of dental implants can be completed in a single office visit, but most require a series of appointments. When you come in for a consultation, we will let you know if you’re a candidate for same-day dental implants.
What is the best age to get Invisalign?
You’re never too old to straighten your teeth with Invisalign! As long as you have healthy teeth and gums, you’re a candidate for Invisalign aligners. If your teen is considering Invisalign, there are no minimum age requirements, but we will want to wait until all of the adult teeth have erupted before starting treatment.
What kind of sedation do dentists use?
There are a few different sedation options used by dentists, but at Bella Dental, we offer patients nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) and conscious oral sedation. Both are considered minimal sedation, so you’ll be relaxed but conscious during your procedure. They are safe, effective, and have very few side effects.
What is the goal of restorative dentistry?
The goal of restorative dentistry is to replace missing teeth and restore function, strength, and appearance to teeth that are damaged by dental trauma or tooth decay.
