Family Dental FAQ – Your Most Common Questions Answered

dca-blog-173-understanding-the-dental-exam

Whether you find dentists terrifying or you enjoy your time at your local family dental clinic, you can always benefit from learning more about the world of general dentistry and its impact on your oral and systemic health. If you’re like most patients, you probably have a few questions about routine and advanced dental care. The following questions and answers are among the most common ones asked by the general public.

Are there New Breakthroughs to Prevent and Treat Tooth Decay?

Advances in general dentistry have resulted in several promising developments in the treatment of tooth decay. One experimental method of cavity detection uses fluorescent light to reveal signs of decay long before they can be detected using traditional exams and X-rays. Also under development are mouth rinses and toothpastes that reverse early tooth decay.

How Safe are Amalgam Fillings, Really?

According to the American Dental Association and the Food and Drug Administration, amalgam fillings are indeed safe. Rumored links to Alzheimer’s disease, autism, and multiple sclerosis are unfounded, and there is no evidence that removing amalgam from the mouth cures any disease.

How can I Handle My Dental Fear?

Talk to your family dental provider about your anxiety symptoms and triggers. Today’s general dentistry professionals take dental anxiety seriously; they realize how it threatens your dental health and causes intense suffering. Your dentist will work with you to reduce your fears and make visits and procedures more bearable through the use of new sedation techniques and treatment alternatives.

How Can I Afford Dental Care on a Fixed Income?

You can find dentists who offer their services at lower rates through assistance programs sponsored by dental societies. Public health clinics, dental schools, and regional dental associations can be useful resources.

Is Drill-Free Dentistry Going to Become a Reality Someday?

Although application of the technology is limited, some dentists are already offering air abrasion treatments. The instrument used is similar to a tiny sandblaster. It directs particles of silica or other abrasives at tooth surfaces to remove decay and stains and prepare teeth for bonding.
