Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Florence, NJ

Have a Question for Us?

We hear a lot of dental questions every day, so to help our patients make fully informed decisions, we’ve decided to answer some of the most common ones right here. Is there anything else you want to know that you can’t find on this page? Be sure to call and ask!

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends that all patients, regardless of age, visit their dentist at least twice a year for routine checkups and cleanings. Even with consistent brushing and flossing, it’s important to have a professional monitor the teeth to make sure they stay healthy throughout the year.

Do You See Children?

Yes, we accept children of all ages and can provide all sorts of services designed to keep their teeth and gums safe as their mouth changes over time. Having a dentist that everyone can see can be a time-saver for many families.

Am I Eligible for Invisalign?

As the only Invisalign provider in the area, we’re more than happy to examine your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is the best choice for your orthodontic treatment. We can use Invisalign to help you correct crowded or gapped teeth, and in certain cases it can even be used to fix overbite, underbite, or crossbite.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

If your mouth is healthy and you have enough jawbone to support the implant posts, dental implants can be used to replace any number of teeth. We can properly determine your eligibility once we’ve performed a full evaluation of your remaining teeth and your jaw.

What Should I Do During a Dental Emergency?

Remain calm, recover anything that was knocked out of your mouth (as in a tooth, part of a tooth, or a restoration), then call our dental office. We’ll give you first aid instruction as needed before scheduling your emergency appointment. Call the emergency room if you have a fractured jawbone, are having any trouble breathing, or are experiencing any other life-threatening problems; we can handle the existing dental issues once you’re out of immediate danger.

What is the Cause of My Tooth Pain?

There’s more than one possible answer, as tooth pain can be caused by something as simple and easily treatable as a piece of food caught in your mouth, but it can also be a symptom of a serious infection. Schedule an evaluation as soon as you can so that we can narrow down the root of the problem.

Do You Take My Dental Insurance?

We accept all PPO insurance plans. Call us to confirm that we accept your plan; we can also answer any questions you might have about your coverage.
