My teeth are healthy. How often do I need to see a dentist?
If your teeth are healthy, you have an excellent chance of keeping them that way for life with the help of Dr. Koppikar and his team. A simple checkup and cleaning every six months could help you avoid costly and painful dental problems in the future.
How can I tell if I need gum disease treatment?
The first symptoms typically include discolored, tender, or puffy gums that may bleed easily when you brush your teeth. However, these signs are generally mild in the early stages. Early detection of oral disease is another reason to see your dentist every six months.
When should my baby start seeing a dentist?
The ADA (American Dental Association) guidelines recommend dental care beginning by the child’s first birthday, or when the first tooth appears. At Biltmore Dental Center, we offer free exams to children under the age of two.
Can you help me overcome my dental fear?
We offer sedation, administered by a certified dental anesthesiologist, to help anxious or fearful patients relax. We also use the gentlest techniques possible, to make dental care comfortable and pleasant.
Why would I see a dentist for teeth whitening when there are so many commercial products available?
The American Dental Association recommends against beginning any kind of bleaching treatment without consulting your dentist first. Additionally, retail products may yield unpredictable or unsatisfactory results, because the active ingredient is much weaker than that in professional strength formulas.
Should I see a dentist for a toothache?
