Frequently Asked Dental Questions
Do I have to go to the dentist every six months?
You don’t have to, but we highly recommend it. These preventive dentistry checkups give the Parkway Vista Dental team an opportunity to partner with patients to prevent common oral health concerns, and keep smiles whole and healthy.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal is a combination of the words “perio” around and “odont” tooth. Periodontal disease occurs when the tissues surrounding teeth, gums, and supportive bone, are infected, inflamed, or destroyed.
How do I know I need a root canal?
The only way to know for sure is to visit our office for a thorough examination by Dr. Kamali. However, some of the warning signs of root canal infection include:
- Severe toothache
- Lingering sensitivity to changes in temperature
- Discoloration of the tooth usually darkening near the gum line
- Inflamed or infected gum tissue
Should I consider dental implants?
Any patient missing a tooth should consider dental implant supported replacement. Dental implants look like screws, and they fuse with gums and jawbone to mimic the root of a lost tooth and support the replacement. That’s why we consider dental implants to be the most natural looking and feeling solution.
I have anxiety related to the dentist’s office. Can you help?
We are passionate about making sure every patient we treat feels completely comfortable and at ease during each visit. However, we know that even our extremely friendly and compassionate team may not be enough for those patients who have severe dental anxiety or phobia. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry to ensure every patient is relaxed and comfortable through even the most complex procedures.
