Frequently Asked Dental Questions
Dentistry can be intimidating and even confusing at times for patients and families in need. That’s why our East York dental team is always standing by to answer your questions. To help put minds at ease, we’ve compiled some of the frequently asked dental questions we receive on a regular basis and their answers below. If you can’t find the information you want on this page, don’t hesitate to call us directly.
Do you see children?
Yes! We really enjoy being able to accommodate your whole family and provide personalized dental care that helps smiles at every stage of development thrive. Our extensive menu of services features several kid-friendly options, including dental sealants, fluoride supplements, athletic mouthguards, and much more.
What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?
While every patient’s circumstances are different and there is no “perfect” service that can be the ideal fit for all cases of tooth loss, our team strongly recommends dental implants. Unlike more traditional prosthetics, implants faithfully replicate every part of the natural tooth, starting with the sturdy, stabilizing root that’s well-hidden beneath the gum tissue. This approach prevents jawbone deterioration (a common consequence of long-term tooth loss) and helps lay the foundation for a beautiful, functional replacement that’s virtually indistinguishable from the original.
If I want dental implants, will I need to see a separate specialist?
Not at all! At Donlands Family Dentistry, our team has the advanced training and state-of-the-art technology needed to offer every stage of dental implant treatment right here on-site, including the surgical components. This saves you time, streamlines the treatment process, and helps you stay comfortable in an environment you already know and trust.
Going to the dentist’s office makes me nervous. Can you help?
Of course. Effective sedation dentistry is available for all cases of dental-related anxiety, whether you’re simply a little on edge or struggling with an outright phobia. Our dentist can help you determine whether nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), oral conscious sedation, or a combination of the two is the right fit for your particular needs and preferences – don’t hesitate to contact us in East York!
Do you see dental emergencies?
Absolutely. Our team understands how distressing dental injuries and unexplained oral pain can be, which is why we strive to never leave patients waiting without much-needed relief. Contact us in East York right away, and we’ll find time in our schedule to provide dedicated emergency care as soon as possible.
