Lynchburg Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and Answers

Why do I need to see the dentist if I brush and floss regularly?

Although it's important to practice proper dental hygiene, such as brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily, it's equally important to visit the dentist every six months. It can take the eyes of a professional to recognize the signs or symptoms of certain complications. Routine dental appointments also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and receive treatment if you need it.

When should my child begin to visit the dentist?

Normally, we start seeing your loved ones for children's dentistry appointments when their teeth have grown in, or around the age of two or three. However, if you think there may be a problem with the way their teeth are developing, you're welcome to bring your child in before then. We can check their mouth and refer you to a specialist if necessary.

I need to replace my teeth, but I'm afraid that dentures won't fit. What can I do?

We understand that in the past, dentures were mass-produced, which left a lot to be desired when it came to a secure fit. However, today's dentures are created to fit individual mouths. Our restorative dentistry team is practiced with measuring patients for dentures and partial dentures.

If you're still unsure, we may be able to place dental implants instead. They act like an artificial tooth from the root up! We can evaluate whether or not you'd be a good candidate for a dental implant at our office. To learn more about them, click here to visit our dental implant page, or call Peery Family Dentistry.
