Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Natick, MA

Common Questions from Our Wonderful Patients

We’ve seen many different patients over the years, all of whom have their own concerns when it comes to dental care. We love being able to answer their questions and helping them make better decisions regarding their oral health. As we’ve noted that there are certain questions that tend to be asked by multiple patients, we’ve decided to put together this brief FAQ guide to help you get a head start in your dental education.

What do you do to treat gum disease?

Once we’ve determined you have gum disease, we determine how advanced your case is and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Most instances of gum disease can be taken care of with periodontal therapy. Traditional periodontal therapy uses tools to scrape off calculus from above and below the gum line. At Papageorgiou Dental Associates, we also use lasers to help with the process. Please contact us if you have bleeding, sore, or discolored gums!

How can teeth whitening brighten my smile?

The teeth whitening services provided by our Natick cosmetic dental office are far more effective than over-the-counter products. We use KöR Whitening for our in-office bleaching service. Or we can customize teeth whitening kits with NiteWhite or DayWhite so you can brighten your smile in the convenience of your home.

Is it possible to straighten my teeth without getting traditional braces?

Invisalign clear braces is a terrific solution for straightening the teeth that show when you smile. Invisalign is a cosmetic dentistry option for people who want to improve the look of their teeth or can also be an element of a full-mouth reconstruction.

Can you help with jaw joint problems?

Yes, we offer treatments for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. If you have a stiff or aching jaw, pain in your neck and shoulders, worn down teeth, or chewing problems, you may well have a TMJ disorder. At our Natick restorative dental office, we can assess your bite, determine the issue, and create an appropriate treatment. If you think you need TMJ therapy, please call our dental office today.

What if I feel anxious about my dental appointment?

At Papageorgiou Dental Associates, we offer comfort dentistry, which means compassionate care, comfortable treatments, and relaxation options. We have Tempurpedic mattresses, television, music, blankets, warm towels, coffee, and tea to make your visit enjoyable. Your dental health is a vital component of your overall wellbeing. We’ll do all that we can to ensure you have a pleasant experience at our Natick dental office so you can receive the quality care that you need.
