Common Questions & Answers

What type of toothbrush & toothpaste should I use?

Toothbrushes with soft bristles are the most gentle on your teeth. Brushing your teeth twice for 2-3 minutes a day is essential for a healthy smile, but using a hard-bristled toothbrush can cause gum irritation and wear down on the enamel.

You should also look for toothpastes that have an American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance. These toothpastes contain fluoride, which can strengthen the enamel and better protect your teeth against decay and cavities.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

The best candidates for dental implants are those who are in good overall health. Dental implant patients must be committed to maintaining a good oral hygiene regimen, consisting of daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental appointments.

Those who smoke or suffer from severe periodontitis can experience complications. Medications for certain conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, can complicate the healing process after surgery.

Does teeth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?

Some teeth whitening products that contain high levels of hydrogen peroxide are known to cause tooth sensitivity. Our teeth whitening treatment does not cause sensitivity. Our dentists will work closely with you on your post-treatment plan to help you better protect your teeth and gums.

What is TMJ therapy?

TMJ therapy treats disorders associated with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). TMJ disorders can cause facial pain, ear pain, jaw lock, and clicking sounds in the jaw. There are many different types of TMJ therapy. We provide custom-made oral appliances and splints to reduce TMJ pain and help patients sleep better at night.

What are the advantages of invisible braces?

Clear aligners are aesthetically-appealing compared to metal braces ﹣ no metal and no prodding wire! Invisible braces also provide patients with the flexibility to remove their aligners for eating and special occasions.

Some clear aligning systems like Invisalign® are expensive, but there are alternatives that are both efficient and cost-effective. Rivoli Dental offers SureSmile® clear aligners and other orthodontic services.
