Frequently Asked Questions About Our Saratoga, CA Dental Services
How often should you go to the dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends dental visits twice a year. During these visits, you will receive an oral examination, a cancer screening, and a professional teeth cleaning. If you have active gum disease or other dental issues, we may recommend scheduling more frequent visits for maintenance.
Can you get dental implants if you have had dentures for years?
Yes, no matter how long you’ve had dentures, you are still a candidate for dental implants. The longer your teeth are missing, the more likely it is that you have some degree of bone loss in your jaw; if we determine that you don’t have the bone mass needed to support dental implants, you may need to have a sinus lift or bone grafting prior to implant surgery or you could be a candidate for certain types of implant restorations that require less jaw support.
What does cosmetic dentistry include?
Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental procedure that is performed for aesthetic reasons. The most common cosmetic procedures are teeth whitening, dental veneers, and bonding. There are also several procedures that have both functional and cosmetic benefits, including crowns, bridges, dental implants, and Invisalign.
Is Invisalign good for older adults?
Yes, there’s no age limit when it comes to Invisalign—we’ve helped patients of all ages achieve beautiful smiles with this innovative orthodontic system. Invisalign is popular with adults who had braces as teens and then experienced orthodontic relapse, as well as patients who have spent decades feeling self-conscious about their teeth.
Are CEREC crowns better than traditional crowns?
Because CEREC crowns eliminate the need for a long wait, two dental appointments, and a temporary restoration, they are better than traditional crowns for most patients. They are strong, durable, and made with precise detailing to blend in with the rest of your smile.
Can dentists treat sleep apnea?
Yes, dentists can treat sleep apnea. Many patients are surprised to learn that sleep apnea can be treated by simply repositioning the lower jaw at night. This engages the soft tissues in the airway, preventing them from relaxing and blocking airflow. We provide oral appliance therapy for patients looking for an effective, comfortable, and affordable alternative to CPAP machines.
What is considered a dental emergency?
We consider it a dental emergency if you’re in unbearable pain or if you need immediate treatment in order to save a compromised tooth. We offer emergency dental services to patients in Saratoga, CA; if you’re experiencing a dental emergency, contact us right away so we can make room in our schedule to see you.
