Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions
At Canal Side Family Dental, we’re always ready to provide the answers our patients need. If you want to know more about our dental office or dentistry in general, this page is a great place to start! Of course, if you have a question that we haven’t covered here, feel free to give us a call anytime. We want you to have all of the information you need to take care of your smile!
How often should I visit the dentist?
The average healthy person should receive at least two preventive checkups and cleanings each year, or about one every six months. These appointments enable our team to catch and treat minor dental issues during their earliest stages, plus they go a long way in preventing many problems from developing in the first place.
Will you see my child?
Yes! Our team is happy to treat entire families under one roof, including their youngest members. Many of our team members are parents themselves, so we’ll know just how to keep your little one comfortable while providing the services their growing smile needs. Children of all ages are welcome, from toddlers to teenagers and everything in between!
Do you accept emergency patients?
Yes. We always make emergency patients a top priority, so if you’re dealing with a broken tooth or severe oral pain, give our office a call, and we’ll work to see you as quickly as possible. We’re often able to treat emergency patients the same day that they call in!
How should I replace my missing teeth?
While the answer to this really depends on your specific situation, in most cases, we would highly recommend dental implants to close the gaps in your smile. Compared to more traditional replacements, they offer the most natural-looking, reliable, and durable results by far. They are the next best thing to real teeth, and you can have the entire procedure completed right here at Canal Side Family Dental.
I just want my smile to look better. Can you help me?
Yes, we have an entire selection of cosmetic treatments that are specifically designed to improve the appearance of the smile. Whether you want to get rid of stains, chips, gaps, or completely transform your smile, we can make it happen using the latest techniques available today. We’ll work with you to design your perfect smile, and then we’ll turn it into a reality in just one or two appointments!
