Q: What If I’m Too Afraid Of Going To The Dentist? [FAQ]
You’re not alone!
Millions of adults suffer from dental anxiety, and it’s one of the biggest roadblocks to better oral health.
That’s why Dr. Martin and our team at Smiles of Punta Gorda are committed to your comfort!
We offer oral sedation so you can get the dental treatment you need without feeling scared, anxious, or stressed at all!
Also, you can take advantage of our various comfort options in our Punta Gorda, FL dental office so your appointment is more comfortable and relaxing from start to finish.
Q: Q: Can You Help My Jaw Stop Hurting?
Pain in the jaw, facial pain, problems opening and closing your mouth, and headaches may be due to TMJ problems. Chronic teeth grinding and gum chewing can contribute to TMJ issues. We offer customized mouthguards that can relieve the pain, improve function, and protect your teeth.
Q: How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Smile
We provide many cosmetic dentistry solutions for concealing and correcting dental flaws. Chips, staining, cracks, “gummy” smiles, and other cosmetic issues can be helped with our following services:
- Dental Veneers
- Invisalign Orthodontics
- Teeth Whitening
- Tooth Contouring
- Crown Lengthening
- Tooth Bonding
- Gum Treatments
- Smile Makeovers
Q: Do You Have An Alternative To Traditional Metal Braces
Yes! We offer short-term Invisalign orthodontics, which are clear and can barely be noticed by anyone. These removable orthodontics gently correct your smile quickly (usually within just one year!) and are much more comfortable than old-school metal braces.
Q: Can Dentures Help Me Chew More Comfortably
Absolutely! Dentures can replace some or all of your teeth and can last for years with the proper care. We’ll schedule regular appointments with you to make sure they remain in great shape. We even offer free consultations if you’re interested in learning more!
Q: What Kind Of Toothbrush Should I Be Using
It all depends on your smile, which is why we encourage you to visit our Punta Gorda, FL dentist office. Some people use the wrong brushes or brushing techniques, which can actually cause harm to gums and ineffectively clean teeth. Let us take a look and provide professional advice so you’re making the most of your at-home care!
