Do you offer yearly oral cancer screenings?
Yes, we prioritize your health. We offer comprehensive oral cancer screenings as part of your regular check-up to detect any potential issues early.
What is an Intraoral Scanner, and how does it benefit patients?
Our Intraoral Scanner is a state-of-the-art device that creates 3D digital impressions of your teeth. It’s more comfortable than traditional molds, improving accuracy and reducing discomfort for patients undergoing various treatments, such as crowns, bridges, and Invisalign.
Crowns are used to restore damaged teeth, while bridges replace missing teeth. We customize these restorations to match your natural teeth, ensuring functionality and aesthetics.
Tell me more about dental implants.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post, an abutment, and a crown. Dr. Sidhu has extensive experience in dental implant procedures, providing patients with durable and natural-looking replacements for missing teeth.
What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces?
Invisalign offers several advantages, including:
- Invisibility: They are virtually invisible, no one will even know that you are straightening your teeth.
- Removability: You can remove them to eat, brush, and floss, maintaining better oral hygiene.
- Comfort: Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable, with no wires or brackets.
- Predictable Results: Digital technology allows for precise treatment planning and predictable outcomes.
How long does Invisalign treatment typically take?
Treatment duration varies depending on individual needs, but most cases are completed within 6 to 12 months. Dr. Sidhu will provide a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.
Are dental implants and Invisalign suitable for everyone?
Dental implants are suitable for most individuals with good oral health. However, Dr. Sidhu will assess your candidacy during a consultation. Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic option but may not be suitable for complex cases; our team will determine if it’s right for you.
