Frequently Asked Dental Patient Questions – Pittsburgh, PA
The More You Know, the Healthier You Are
Patient education is extremely important here at Warwick Dentistry. We take time with everyone to answer questions and ensure our patients completely understand all of their options so they can make confident care decisions. Below, we’ve gone ahead and answered some of the most popular questions we receive every day, but if there is anything else you’d like to know, you can call us any time—no question is too small!
Q: I’m a busy professional. How am I supposed to fit a dental appointment into my day?
A: Your dental health is very important. Poor oral health has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and complications with diabetes and pregnancy. At Warwick Dentistry, we understand that your time is important and your schedule is packed. Not only do we offer extended hours, but our services are also designed for professionals just like you. Wait times are always minimized, and we make sure you receive our undivided attention while you're with us. This means you’ll receive a thorough exam and advanced care in less time.
Q: I’m not ready for cosmetic dentistry, but I’d like to change my smile for the better. Is there another choice?
A: Yes! Warwick dentistry offers Snap On Smile, and it’s a great way to change your smile without permanently altering your natural teeth. Your Snap On Smile is created just for you with a completely custom fit and look. When complete, you simply snap it on over your teeth for a perfect smile without the commitment. Snap On Smile is also a great way to try on a new look before deciding which cosmetic dentistry procedure is right for you. Make an appointment with our downtown Pittsburgh dental practice to find out more.
Q: I’ve been told I might not be a candidate for dental implants because of bone loss. Can you help?
A: Drs. John and Joyce might be able to help you achieve the appropriate bone density for dental implants through a bone graft or sinus lift. During the procedure, bone is added to the lower jaw or upper jaw in the case of a sinus lift. The bone fuses together as it heals, creating a solid base for dental implants. Contact us for your consultation today.
Q: I am very nervous about my dental visit. Can you help me relax?
A: Absolutely. And, you should know that you’re not alone. Many patients are anxious about dental procedures, and some are even fearful. We provide a caring chairside manner, a gentle touch that you’ll appreciate, and oral sedation or nitrous oxide to help you through your appointment. Make sure to discuss your apprehension with us prior to your visit so that we can determine what type of sedation is best for you.
