Our practice was recently featured in the Best of Orlando edition of the Orlando Magazine. I wanted to share it with the readers of our blog. I was asked the answer the following questions for the magazine:
Q. Is there such a thing as painless dentistry?
A. My number one goal is to never hurt a patient. Some simple procedures can be performed painlessly without an injection. However, when it is necessary to get numb, there are several techniques that can be used to make it as painless as possible.
Q. What is Invisalign and can I use it to straighten my teeth?
A. Invisalign is a system that uses clear trays to move teeth. Most people tend to prefer Invisalign over metal braces because they look better and feel better. However, Invisalign does not work for every person so it is important to have your dentist look at your teeth to see if you qualify. If your dentist is not certified to do Invisalign, we offer a free consultation.
Q. I’m new to the area. What is the best way to find a dentist?
A. A good place to start is to ask a friend or coworker if they like their dentist. From there, you can look up the dentist online and see if they have good reviews online. It can also be helpful to ask your local or state dental organizations.
