Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike other dental web sites, our FAQ is not prepared by one or two dentists. What we have done is compiled the best answers for our FAQ, organizing it all here for you. For instance, if you have a question about root canal treatments we guide you to the American Academy of Endodontics. So instead of getting your answer from an individual doctor, you get it from the most reputable source for root canal treatment issues.

All the answers provided are for general information only. Your dentist will be able to answer any specific questions about your case. You should consult your dentist before making any decisions regarding treatment for your oral health issues.
