A 46-year-old member asked:
Yes and no: DentalBridges cannot address the facialStructure, but can help in restoring function of the smile,allowing patients to speak and eat more efficiently.implants,however,are placed into the jawbone and through the process of Osseointegration,they can help build up lostbone and maintain it.For patients at risk for losing their bone,the placement of Implants may be beneficial for a youthful FacialShape
A 62-year-old male asked:
No, it does not: Preparing for a dentalCrown and having a dentalCrown physically placed are not painfulTreatments.Patient comfort is ensured with local anesthetics during this time.The dentist must first remove enamel from the tooth to take impressions,which are then sent to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the crown.Once it arrives at the dentalOffice,it is bonded in place over the NaturalToothStructure
A 19-year-old female asked:
It can be helpful: It is not required to brush your teeth before going to the dentist, especially if you already brush and floss after every meal. However, some patients feel better about having a freshly cleaned smile when they sit in the dental chair. It can help, but it is not required. In many cases, patients will have a cleaning performed when they visit the dentist.
