How often should I see my Fort Worth dentist for a checkup and cleaning?
As a general rule, we recommend that children and adults see Dr. Givan at least twice a year, or about every six months. Through regular visits we can help you keep your teeth and gums clean. We can also diagnose and treat any problems early, before they become a bigger risk to your oral and overall wellbeing.
Are “silver” fillings safer than “white” fillings?
In 1993, the U.S. Public Health Service determined that "silver" fillings were safe to use in the treatment of cavities. Despite that, our Fort Worth office only uses "white" fillings because of the way they bond with teeth, offering more support to a tooth weakened by decay. They also blend in with your teeth and they're less sensitive to temperature.
Are over-the-counter whitening products effective at all?
Unfortunately, no. Despite the large number of whitening products available at your local grocery store or pharmacy, professional whitening is more reliable and effective. If you’re interested in brightening your smile, talk to Dr. Givan about treatment with at-home teeth whitening.
What’s the difference between a “bridge” and a “partial denture”?
Both services help you replace missing teeth. The difference is that a bridge is permanently attached while a partial denture is attached using clasps and may be removed. Often, patients are more satisfied with bridges than with partials.
How often should I brush and floss?
We recommend brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once, and rinsing with an antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash.
