FAQs

Q1:

Why are checkups recommended every six months, even for people with excellent oral health?
Big problems have to start somewhere, and they usually start very small, making them hard to detect. Our Smilearc Dental Clinic uses modern technology to find cavities during the earliest stage, before you could possibly see or feel them. The more often you visit our office for general family dentistry care, the more likely we are to catch small problems before they become big ones, making treatment more effective.

Q2:

What are the benefits of braces?
Most people believe that a more beautiful smile is the number one reason to straighten misaligned teeth with braces, but there are other benefits as well. Crooked and crowded teeth make practicing proper oral hygiene difficult, leading to tooth decay, gum disease, and, eventually, tooth loss. Orthodontic issues can also contribute to abnormal wearing of the teeth, gum tissue stress, problems with chewing, and problems with the jaw joints. Over time, these things can cause headaches, neck pain, and facial pain. Book an appointment with Dr.Ayush to know your options.

Q3:

Ouch! I have a toothache. What do I do?
Call us for an appointment! A toothache may indicate that you have a root canal infection, which can be alleviated with root canal therapy. During a root canal, Dr. Kamal cleans out the infection, files the tooth smooth, and fills in the hollowed space with a special dental filling. Then we recommend capping the tooth with a porcelain crown.

Q4:

My gums bleed when I brush. Why?
If your gums bleed during or after you brush your teeth, it's likely you have some form of gum disease. It's important to treat gum disease as quickly as possible to protect your dental and overall health. At Smilearc Dental Clinic, we can return wellbeing to your gums by performing periodontal therapy.

Q5:

Some of my teeth are missing. What can you do?
The first step is to get an oral health assessment at our clinic. Dr. Kamal offers several options for replacing missing teeth. Depending on your dental needs, your budget, and Dr.Kamal’s recommendation, you may get a crown and bridge, dentures and partials, or dental implants.

Q6:

My teeth are really yellow. Is there any way to get a whiter smile?
We offer our patients two kinds of teeth whitening treatments! Firstly, with our chairside whitening service, which can brighten your smile up to eight shades in just one dental visit. Or If you have cracked, chipped, or gapped teeth, you might also consider getting porcelain veneers.

Q7:

What causes tooth sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity is extremely common and can be caused by several factors. Your teeth might have tiny fractures or areas of decay. Gum disease or gum recession is another common cause of tooth sensitivity. Are your gums red and swollen? Can you see your tooth roots? When tooth roots are exposed, this can cause severe tooth sensitivity. Bruxism, grinding your teeth at night, might also be a factor. Visit our clinic for an examination, so we can determine the exact cause in your unique situation.

Q8:

What are implants and how long do they last?
Dental implants are an alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the jawbone. At Smilearc Dental Clinic, we can both place and restore your dental implants. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile. The life of the dental implant depends on your age, oral health status, and personal hygiene. With proper care, they last a lifetime in most cases.

Q9:

What are the benefits of a digital X-ray over traditional radiographs?
igital X-rays offer unparalleled benefits over traditional radiographs: they’re convenient, safe for the environment, provide a great opportunity for patient education, can be transferred and copied accurately, and best of all, they’re safer for our patients. Digital X-rays emit about 80-percent less radiation than traditional methods.
