It’s normal to have questions about dental care. If you want to properly maintain your smile, there is no harm in asking your dentist about various details concerning your treatment plan or dentistry in general! Below you’ll find answers to the questions most frequently asked by our dental patients.
You don’t have to, but our team recommends checkups two times each year in order to preserve an optimal level of oral health. This is also the recommendation of the American Dental Association to ensure patients maintain their healthiest smiles.
Periodontal disease causes the soft tissue to become inflamed, infected, or break down over time. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among US adults and affects millions of people every year.
Oral cancer claims one life every hour on average, and as much as 30% of those diagnosed do not engage in any of the high-risk behaviors like smoking. That’s why we consider oral cancer screening to be an integral part of every checkup for every patient.
We are happy to help patients whenever they are in need, and we do our utmost to provide same-day treatment for patients experiencing dental emergencies. Call our dental office line and follow the after-hours contact instructions to find out more.

Not at all. In fact, most patients report experiencing significant relief from the toothache that precedes root canal treatment immediately following their root canal.
