Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Dentistry is truly the field that keeps on giving. Every year, dentists like Dr. Najjar learn more about the industry and developments within it, which is precisely why continuing education is so important. As a patient, you probably have questions about your next treatment or just about oral health in general, which is why we’ve included a list of the most common questions she gets on a regular basis. If yours is not mentioned, feel free to give us a call and we’ll do our best to help!

What’s the best way to replace teeth?

While there are many ways to replace missing teeth, including dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants, it really depends on your needs. For example, if you want a more affordable and faster treatment to replace many teeth, dentures may be the best solution. However, we can easily customize dentures to fit on top of dental implants, providing a more stable solution overall. We recommend that you come to our dental office for a consultation to learn more about your options!

Do you place dental implants?

Yes, we do! Since many dental offices only perform the restoration phase of dental implant treatment, it can be a relief for patients knowing that all of their care is taken care of in-house. Dr. Suzanne Najjar is trained to place and restore dental implants, regardless of the number of teeth you need to replace. We’ll plan every step of your treatment, making sure that you feel comfortable and that all of your needs are met.

How can I straighten teeth without braces?

If you’d prefer to keep your professional appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is the way to go. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners to gently push teeth into a straighter and healthier position. Since the aligners are clear, removable and easy to clean, you avoid all the pitfalls that come with traditional metal braces and complete treatment in less time overall. We recommend that you schedule a free consultation with our dental office to learn more about the treatment!

How often should I visit for a checkup?

All patients should be committing to routine exams and cleanings once every six months. Exams help us catch the early signs of dental disease as well as confirm that your current oral care routine is protecting your smile. Professional cleanings are more comprehensive than what you’d be able to accomplish at home, which is why they are a major part of routine care. Without exams and cleanings, your long-term oral health is at risk.

Do you see kids?

We’re happy to accommodate younger patients! Not only do we provide many treatments specifically intended for children, but our dental office is more than prepared to meet your child’s accommodations. We work hard to create a positive and welcoming atmosphere that keeps your child’s comfort in mind. Whether your child has special needs or they struggle with tooth decay, we promise to be patient and answer your questions regarding your child’s oral care.

Can I receive dental implants if I have low bone volume?

While bone tissue is incredibly important for dental implants, we have options for those who have had missing teeth for a long time and therefore have less bone tissue. Mini dental implants are significantly smaller than traditional dental implants and therefore require less bone tissue to successfully place.

How can you improve the way my smile looks?

We have many solutions that can make your smile look truly extraordinary. Our advanced in-office and take-home teeth whitening, Invisalign clear aligners, porcelain veneers, Lumineers, and direct bonding treatments are sure to put a smile on your face. These treatments can also be mixed and matched if you’d prefer to have a total smile makeover!
