Dental FAQs in Woodstock, MD
Read answers to popular questions that many patients have about their dental care and our practice:
What is the procedure if I have a dental emergency?
Your comfort is very important to us. If you do have an urgent dental problem, please call us as early in the day as possible. This will make it easier to see you on the same day. If you have a true dental emergency when we are not in the office, please call our office phone number and you will be directed as to what to do.
Do you offer cosmetic dentistry?
Yes, we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatments including dental veneers, tooth bonding, Invisalign, and teeth whitening treatment. Cosmetic dental care enhances the strength and aesthetics of patients’ smiles.
How often should I visit the dentist?
Visiting the dentist every six months can keep your mouth healthy and help prevent dental problems from worsening over time. At regular dental visits, our dental hygienists provide cleanings that remove plaque and tartar, large contributors to tooth decay and gum disease. We also routinely take x-rays to keep track of any emerging dental problems.
What causes bad breath?
Typically, patients may have temporary bad breath due to certain foods like garlic. Dry mouth can also cause bad breath. A lack of saliva can lead to bacterial buildup in the mouth and halitosis or bad breath. Drinking enough water and following a good oral health routine can help minimize bad breath.
