Frequently Asked Questions

How can my pregnancy affect my oral health?

Pregnancy gingivitis is common during pregnancy as one of every two pregnant women suffers from it. Advanced teeth problems known as periodontal disease, can cause severe damage to your teeth and gums. Periodontal disease cannot be taken lightly because it can also damage the health of your baby. We highly recommend visiting your dentist for an extra check-up while pregnant to make sure you are free of cavities or potential infection that may cause significant problems to your and your baby’s health.

Should I take antibiotics before my dental appointment?

This has been a subject of debate in dentistry for many years. You should take antibiotics if you are suffering from a heart problem or if you have had a joint replacement done. In every case, if you are undergoing any other problem, you should inform your dentist at the time of booking your appointment. Your dentist will let you know whether you need to take it or not.

What Is Tooth Sensitivity and Why Do I Have It?

Feeling pain while having hot, cold, acidic, or sweet foods and beverages is defined as tooth sensitivity. There may be several reasons for tooth sensitivity, such as receding gums, teeth grinding, fractured teeth, fillings, and teeth whitening treatments. Visit your dentist, and they will tell you the exact reason for it after examining your teeth.

When should I take my child to a dentist for the first time?

As you notice the first tooth in their mouth, you should plan a visit to your dentist. However, regular check-ups become necessary after your child becomes two years old, and all teeth appear.

How often should I visit my dentist?

How frequently you should visit your dentist, entirely depends on your dental hygiene routine. If you have healthy teeth, you should visit once or twice a year for having your teeth examined. The dentist will identify potential dental problems that can become severe over time and recommend their treatments. Also, they will recommend teeth whitening to you if your teeth are stained.

Do I have to pay any money if I have dental insurance?

It only depends on the type of dental insurance you have. If your dental insurance provides you with 100% coverage, you will not have to pay anything.

Do you provide under-sleep dental work in the hospital if I am covered

Most definitely! We can offer you that option. However, the services are conditional and depends if you may require multiple extractions, or if the person needing this treatment is a mentally or medically challenged patient.

How can I avoid cavities, gingivitis, and other dental problems?

Dr. Sandhu recommends a balanced diet, proper oral care, and regular visits to your dentists.
