One of the biggest reasons patients don’t end up visiting the dentist is out of fear of the procedures, pain or due to a bad past experience. However, the longer patients delay in receiving treatment for their dental problems in Allen, TX, the worse they often become. Dr. Rebecca Bork and our team understand you may have many questions about some of the procedures like dental implants or your oral symptoms such as missing teeth or tooth pain, so we have created a quick dental FAQ on many common dental problems. What you may be surprised to hear is that overall, dentistry can be minimally invasive and offers a variety of solutions for your dental problems—not just one set-in-stone response.
Common dental problems that could cause your teeth to ache are gum recession or the development of gum disease. Addressing these concerns with your doctor sooner rather than later may help get ahead of the problem before it gets worse.
Dr. Bork offers multiple treatment options for discolored, dull teeth. Patients can receive cosmetic dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or professional teeth whitening.
Depending on your needs, crooked teeth can be corrected with porcelain veneers, dental crowns or Invisalign®.
Headaches and migraines can be signs of TMJ disorder. We offer custom oral appliances to help adjust and protect your teeth to prevent further pain.
Dental implants act like your natural teeth and are the only permanent tooth replacement option. Implants replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire dental arch.
The cost of dental implants relies on many factors depending on your needs, including your unique oral condition, the number of teeth missing and their location in your jaw, the severity of jaw bone loss, etc.
With the help of dental sedation, surgery is typically not painful at all. When placing the dental crowns on your implants, the process is not painful at all and will leave you with the relief in knowing you have a secure, complete smile.
You can treat your dental implants like natural teeth, brushing and flossing them daily. We recommend that you also visit twice a year for dental checkups and routine dental cleanings.
Our practice offers non-surgical treatment with scaling and root planing therapy as well as routine periodontal maintenance treatment.
We offer two different options of professional teeth whitening, Opalescence® and Glo®. Both options can be used as a take-home solution, but we can perform in-office Opalescence whitening.
Porcelain veneers are excellent options for masking dull, worn, or chipped teeth as they simply mask imperfections and can be performed in just two appointments.
Yes! We are a family dentistry practice that offers pediatric care for children of all ages
Virtually all patients quality for dental implants, no matter their age or oral condition. Dental implants only require that there is enough bone in the jaw to support them securely.
The surgery portion of your dental implants is performed by a dental surgeon. Dr. Bork will then restore the implants with lifelike and durable dental crowns once the dental implants have healed.
