Frequently Asked Questions About Our Oyster Bay, NY Dental Practice
How often do I need to see the dentist?
No matter what your age, the recommendation is the same: everyone should go to the dentist every six months for oral evaluations and dental cleanings. These routine checkups are one of the most important ways to keep your teeth free of decay and your gums healthy.
Is a root canal painful?
If you need a root canal treatment, you’ve likely heard that it’s a painful procedure. The truth is that with modern techniques and local anesthesia, the process of getting a root canal is no more painful than getting a cavity filled. After the procedure, you’re likely to have some discomfort as the anesthesia wears off, but this is usually mild.
Which is better, amalgam or composite fillings?
We feel that composite fillings are superior to amalgam fillings. Composite fillings blend in with the rest of your smile for a more natural appearance. Many of our patients choose to get their amalgam fillings replaced with composite material, not just for aesthetic reasons, but also because older amalgam fillings are often made with mercury.
Are dental implants worth it?
Yes, we’ve provided many patients with dental implants over the years and the overwhelming majority are pleased with the results. Dental implants look, function, and feel like natural teeth.
Are same-day crowns as good as traditional crowns?
Yes, we offer same-day crowns at our practice because they are just as strong and durable as most traditional crowns, with none of the hassle. The exception to this is if you grind your teeth in your sleep—if this is the case, a metal or gold alloy crown may be a better fit for your needs.
How can I whiten my teeth in one day?
The only way to achieve a noticeably whiter smile in a single day is with professional in-office teeth whitening treatment. In under an hour, years of stains, yellowing, and discoloration will disappear.
Is Invisalign a permanent fix?
As long as you wear your retainer as directed once treatment is complete, Invisalign is a permanent fix for misaligned teeth and bites. Like any other orthodontic treatment, your teeth can shift back to their original positions if you don’t wear a retainer.
What can a dentist do for TMJ?
If you have TMJ pain, a dentist can provide you with a diagnosis and, in most cases, also treat your TMJ disorder. While TMJ disorder is sometimes caused by arthritis, which requires a collaborative approach involving both medical doctors and dentists, TMJ pain that is caused by teeth grinding and jaw tension can be treated by a dentist.
Can gum disease be cured?
Yes, gum disease can be cured. When gum disease is caught in its earliest stages, a simple treatment called scaling and root planing can reverse the disease and restore health to the gums. If gum disease has progressed, it can still be cured, but its damage may be permanent or require extensive treatments to repair.
