Adult Dentistry FAQs
How does pediatric dentistry differ from adult dentistry?
Generally, a pediatric dentist will only treat children and has more advanced training, preparation, knowledge and experience to do so. Pediatric dentists are also specially trained to treat children with special needs. Adult dentists may not carry pediatric-sized tools or meds or offer a child-friendly environment like a pediatric dentist might.
Can adults receive sedatives for dental procedures?
Some patients choose to undergo dental work while sedated due to a severe phobia of dentists and dental treatment. Some adults may also undergo moderate to deep sedation for more complex procedures. There are several types of sedation, and your dentist will choose what's right for you based on what procedure is performed, the length of it and your level of dental anxiety.
How do I choose the right dentist for me?
You want to pick a dentist who you can trust to provide you with the best, most comprehensive dental experience. Tips for finding a dentist who will work for you include asking your friends and family members for recommendations, checking Google reviews, looking into the dental insurances they accept or any payment plans they have or even visiting the clinic.
How often should you go to the dentist?
Dentists typically recommend regular checkups every 6 months. People with good oral health can probably wait 1-2 years before they need to visit a dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups. If you tend to have more issues with your oral health, you may need to see a dentist more often. Ultimately it will depend on you and your unique dental health needs.
What should I expect from a new dentist?
Visiting a new dentist for the first time can make you feel anxious, but Tanty Family Dental is here to ease your worries. When you meet with a new dentist, they may ask you about your medical history, your general health, your teeth cleaning habits and any problems you've had with your teeth in the past. They will carry out a full examination of your mouth, teeth and gums and then provide you with advice about your diet, smoking, drinking and the best ways to keep your mouth healthy.
Are there alternatives to braces for adults?
Clear aligners are the most popular alternative to braces for adults. Tanty Family Dental offers renowned brands such as Invisalign and SureSmile to straighten your teeth. Clear aligners can fix minor overbites and underbites or even serious malocclusions. They're also discreet, removable and custom-made to fit your teeth.
Do adults normally get cavities?
Since cavities and tooth decay are some of the world's biggest health concerns, adults are still susceptible to getting them. Though, cavities tend to be less frequent in adults since many adults develop proper brushing, flossing and treatment habits.
