Q: How many times a day should I brush my teeth?
A: Most dental professionals suggest that you brush your teeth at least twice daily. Brushing after every meal and flossing once a day is a good way to maintain your dental health.
Q: When should a child have his/her first dental appointment?
A: A child should visit the dentist for the first time no later than their third birthday. Many dentists recommend that children visit the dentist once their first tooth comes in.
Q: Who needs to have their wisdom teeth removed?
A: Anyone who is in danger of developing impacted wisdom teeth should have them removed to prevent damage to adjacent molars or cause other oral problems.
Q: Who needs dentures?
A: If you have lost most or all of your teeth, dentures may be right for you. For those with some natural teeth remaining, partial dentures are recommended to improve chewing and speech.
Q: I have a broken tooth – how can I get it fixed? Do you do general dentistry?
A: Dr. Star is trained in a wide range of procedures, from general dentistry treatments to more advanced procedures. While we are pleased to offer our advanced services for our patients' convenience, we still understand the importance of the basics! We offer all general dentistry treatment options at Jonathan Dental.
If you have a specific concern such as a broken tooth, we offer a no charge consultation with one of our dentists. We can examine the area and provide treatment options at no cost to you. Depending on the severity, treatment for a broken tooth can range from polishing sharp edges, placing a tooth-colored filling or crown, performing a root canal, or extracting the tooth and placing a bridge or implant.
If you are in need of general dentistry services or would like to schedule your free consultation to address a specific concern, contact our office today.
