Q:What's the difference between a "bridge" and a "partial denture"?

A:Both are partial dentures. But the bridge is permanently attached. Meanwhile the partial denture can easily be removed by the patient.

Q:Do I need a root canal to have a crown?

A:No. Not every tooth needing a crown also needs to have a root canal.

Q:How often should I floss?

A:Once per day helps to prevent cavities from forming.

Q:Is one toothpaste better than others?

A:Generally, no. We recommend our patients use what tastes good to them as long as it contains fluoride.

Q:Which type of toothbrush should I use?

A:A soft toothbrush with a small head is recommended.

Q:Should I do silver fillings, or is white better?

A:Silver is completely safe, however we recommend tooth-colored composite fillings as it bonds the best.
