Q: Why do I need X-Rays?
A: Radiographic or X-ray examinations provide your dentist with an important diagnostic tool that shows the condition of your teeth, their roots, jaw placement and the overall composition of your facial bones.
X-Ray can help your dentist determine the presence or degree of periodontal disease, abscesses and many abnormal growths, such as cysts and tumors.
X-rays can also show the exact location of impacted teeth. They can pinpoint the location of cavities and other signs of disease that may not be possible to detect through visual examination (such as changes in the jaw bone structure as a result of systemic disease).
Q: Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
A: Absolutely, there are several options available for safe Sedation Dentistry . A dentist will evaluate your level of dental anxiety . Then they will evaluate your overall health to recommend the proper safe sedation treatment. What most patient’s don’t realize is that there are several options for sedation dentistry.
Q: I have a number of black fillings,
what can I have done to improve this?
A: The black filling material used in your teeth is amalgam. It has been used as a filling material for over a hundred years; it’s still one of the strongest materials available.
However, it’s about as unattractive a filling material as you can get. Here at Park South Charlotte Dentistry we use composite fillings, the great thing about these? They match the color of your teeth exactly!
Q: If I have a crown done, do I get it back the same day of my appointment?
A: Our crown and bridge procedures here at Park South Charlotte Dentistry are 2 different appointments, the first being the preparation for the crown as well as a beautiful temporary crown that will last you until your second appointment in which you will receive your final permanent crown.
Q: Can I have my teeth straightened without having to wear braces?
A: YES! We are a proud premiere provider of Invisalign. Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth
