Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is completely safe when you partner with your dentist. Patients who are especially prone to teeth sensitivity should consider brushing with an anti-sensitivity toothpaste in the days leading up to the treatment.
How often do I need a checkup and cleaning?
Patients of all ages should undergo a checkup and cleaning every six months. But if it’s been a while since your last visit, that’s ok — schedule an appointment today to get back on track.
Is fluoride safe?
Dr. Sandberg recommends fluoride for strengthening tooth enamel against the acids and bacteria that cause decay. Children and cavity-prone adults especially benefit from its use.
Do root canals hurt?
With our modern, experienced care and help from anesthesia, you are unlikely to experience any discomfort throughout a root canal treatment.
What can I do for a loose or uncomfortable denture?
If you experience an ill-fitting denture, schedule an appointment with us right away. A prompt reline or refitting is necessary to prevent infection-prone oral sores.
What kind of braces do you offer for adults?
Dr. Sandberg offers conventional, clear, and accelerated orthodontic options. Choose from traditional braces, Invisalign, and Six Month Smiles.
Are x-rays safe?
Digital x-rays expose you and your loved ones to up to 90% less radiation compared to the traditional method — so we can say that yes, x-rays are totally safe at the South Jersey Center for Dental Medicine.
