Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Care

Why Is Visiting the Dentist So Important?

Visiting the dentist is important because it helps to prevent and treat dental problems. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene, which includes brushing and flossing your teeth regularly and getting regular dental check-ups. Dr. Kaplan and your hygienist can identify and treat problems in their early stages, which can help prevent more serious problems from developing. In addition to helping to maintain the health of your teeth and gums, regular dental check-ups can also help to identify other health problems that may manifest in the mouth, such as diabetes or oral cancer. Our goal at Skyline Dental Designs is to give you compassionate and quality care in relaxing surroundings. We aim to not only pinpoint concerns that could turn into larger issues later, but also enable preventative measures to stop dental issues from occurring.

We pride ourselves on our ability to listen to patient concerns and work through detailed treatment plans. Dr. Kaplan places a huge emphasis on education, so patients always feel informed and knowledgeable.

How Can I Take Care of My Teeth between Dental Checkups?

Regular brushing and flossing twice a day can help you keep an optimal level of oral health.

How Often Should You See the Dentist?

The health industry and the American Dental Association strongly suggest you have a dental examination every six months. At Skyline Dental Designs we also encourage patients to come in for routine checkups every six months.

What Is Periodontal Treatment?

Periodontal treatment is focused on treating conditions associated with gum disease. The procedure usually involves lifting your gums off of your teeth so the doctor can remove tartar buildup. After you have had your gums cleaned and the tartar removed, your gums are stitched into place to fit around the teeth. Sometimes, the bone may require reshaping during this procedure.

At Skyline Dental Designs our in-practice associate, Dr. Greco, can cater to your needs. He is highly skilled in treating gum disease and periodontal conditions.

Do You Need to See a Dentist When You Have a Habit of Grinding Your Teeth?

Experiencing symptoms of an aching jaw, headaches or tooth sensitivity are all indications you may need to see your dentist. Waking up with a stiff or sore neck, or a dull, throbbing headache can all be complications from grinding your teeth, also known as bruxism. At Skyline Dental Designs, we can help you prevent teeth grinding and help alleviate symptoms associated with teeth grinding, as well as treat TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and TMD (temporomandibular disorders).

Yes, you can! We work with patients hand in hand to create tailored treatment plans so it is possible to achieve the smile transformation you desire with multiple procedures.

Loved my experience here! The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the office is clean and beautiful. Dr. Kaplan was great - he was friendly, didn't rush anything, answered all of my questions, and did my teeth cleaning himself. Very happy to have Skyline Dental for my future dentist visits.

Seamless process from start to finish. Dr. Kaplan is the most thorough dentist I've been to. He took the time to get to know me and my oral health/goals. Explained my options and treatment plan. His actual treatment (for fillings) was completely painless!
