How often should I visit the dentist?
The general rule of thumb is to schedule a dental cleaning and exam about every six months. This will help prevent the build up of harmful plaque and tartar on your teeth. If you’re on a gum disease treatment plan, however, we may suggest seeing you more often until the infection is under control.
How can dental implants help my smile?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that we can insert in your jawbone where you have missing teeth. After a period of healing, your new implants will support replacement teeth to make eating, smiling, and talking much easier.
Your restoration options may include crowns, bridges, dentures, and full arches of fixed teeth. Depending on the condition of your mouth, we can use one or more of these restorations to give you back your smile.
What are my options for cosmetic dentistry?
Our cosmetic dentistry services can give you a more beautiful smile that you’ll enjoy showing off to everyone! Depending on your needs, your choices may include teeth whitening, dental veneers, orthodontics, gum reshaping, dental bonding, and even gum recession treatment.
We will sit down with you to develop a treatment plan for creating your new smile. If needed, we can even design a custom smile makeover that combines several of our aesthetic dentistry services. Many of our patients who were once dissatisfied with their smiles have ended up loving their new look after their cosmetic treatment. We can help you, too!
What kinds of dentures do you offer?
Modern dentures have come a long way from the “false teeth” you might remember from childhood. They perform better than ever these days! Your dentures options could include conventional dentures for replacing either a full arch or a partial arch of teeth. Either style will remove easily for care and cleaning.
We can also pair dentures with dental implants for a more secure and stable fit. Implant-retained and implant-supported dentures attach to implants and won’t slip, click, or move out of place. Hybrid dentures use a minimal number of implants to secure a complete arch of fixed teeth. At your consultation, we’ll help you decide which type of dentures will work best for you.
We hope we’ve answered your Ozark dental questions. If you have other questions or if you’d like to make an appointment, call us today at 417-233-4280.
