What services does Bordia Dental Associates provide?
Bordia Dental Associates offers a comprehensive range of services including preventive and general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, oral surgery, and periodontal treatments.
How often should I schedule dental checkups?
It is essential to visit your dentist every six months for a dental checkup and professional cleaning. This allows your dentist to detect and treat potential issues early, ensuring optimum oral health.
What are dental implants and why might I need one?
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. They are made of a biocompatible titanium post that’s surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
What should I do if I have sensitive teeth?
Tooth sensitivity can be caused by factors like worn enamel, exposed tooth roots, gum recession, or tooth decay. To alleviate sensitivity, use a toothpaste specially formulated for sensitive teeth and brush gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Avoid acidic foods and beverages that can erode tooth enamel. If sensitivity persists, consult your dentist, who may recommend desensitizing treatments, dental bonding, or other interventions based on the underlying cause.
What should I do if my gums bleed when I brush or floss?
Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing could be a sign of gum disease, which is caused by plaque buildup and inflammation. It’s important not to ignore this symptom. Continue brushing and flossing gently, but thoroughly, to maintain good oral hygiene. Additionally, schedule an appointment with your dentist to evaluate your gum health and receive appropriate treatment, which may include professional cleaning, improved oral hygiene techniques, or other interventions.
What is the difference between veneers and bonding?
Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance, masking discolorations, gaps, or chips. On the other hand, bonding involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin directly to the tooth’s surface to correct minor imperfections.
What is a dental emergency, and what should I do in case of one?
VDental emergencies include severe toothaches, chipped or broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, or facial trauma affecting the mouth and jaw. If you experience a dental emergency, call Bordia Dental Associates immediately, and our team will schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
