If you have a question about your dental care, the team at Bridlewood Dental is more than happy to answer it! You’ll find our responses to some of the most popular questions we receive below, but if there is anything else you’d like to ask, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
This answer will differ from person to person, but on average, we recommend coming to see us at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. This is the best way to catch any minor issues early and prevent many from developing in the first place.
After rinsing and flossing around the tooth, if the pain persists, go ahead and give Bridlewood Dental a call. Even minor dental pain could be an indicator of a serious infection or damage, and acting quickly will save you from a much bigger headache in the future!
Unless the pain was the result of a piece of food being stuck between the teeth, then YES. Sometimes toothaches can come and go, but there is still damage being done to the tooth. If you aren’t sure why your tooth is hurting, schedule a visit as soon as you can before the pain comes back even worse.
It really depends on the extent of the damage. Minor cavities can usually be filled in one appointment, but more severe decay or trauma may call for a crown, which normally takes about two appointments to design, mill, and place.
While common, your gums should NOT be bleeding whenever you clean your teeth. Brush and floss with less pressure for a few days, and if the bleeding continues, go ahead and give Bridlewood Dental a call. You likely have early-stage gum disease, and it will only get worse without professional treatment, but we can take care of it right away.
Bridlewood Dental is in-network with most prominent dental insurance plans, so the answer is likely yes! Give us a call today to learn how we can maximize your benefits and help you save as much as possible at your next appointment.
