Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question? Want to know more about TrueCare Dentistry or your dental options in general? If so, then you’re in luck, because our own Dr. Rana has taken the time to answer some of your most common dental questions! Of course, if you have a question that hasn’t been covered here, be sure to give us a call and ask! We’re always happy to talk to you and make sure you have all the dental knowledge you need.

How often should I be going to the dentist?

To prevent common dental issues like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease long-term, I (along with the American Dental Association) would recommend that people of all ages should attend at least two checkups and cleanings per year, or one every six months. These appointments are quick, easy, and essential to catching small dental problems before they can become major headaches.

Do you accept emergency patients?

Yes! We are happy to help patients dealing with any kind of dental problem that requires immediate attention, whether that involves a broken/knocked out tooth or severe toothache. Just give us a call, and we’ll work to see you and solve your problem as quickly as possible.

I think I might have a cavity. What should I do?

The one thing you shouldn’t do is ignore it! Left untreated, cavities can easily lead to quite a bit of pain and even lost teeth. If one of your teeth is feeling a little more sensitive lately or has a noticeable dark spot, just give our office a call, and we can schedule an appointment to fix it right away. If it’s a small cavity, we can likely take care of it in just one visit using a tooth-colored filling, though we may recommend a crown if the tooth has sustained quite a bit of damage.

Is it normal for my gums to bleed every time I brush?

There are only three reasons that the gum tissue consistently bleeds during cleaning. One, you’ve just started flossing after not doing it for a while, two, you’re cleaning your teeth with too much force, or three, you have early-stage gum disease. Try cleaning your teeth with a lighter touch for about a week and see if this helps. If the bleeding persists, gum disease is likely the culprit, and that’s something you simply can’t handle on your own. Fortunately, we can provide a number of treatments that can get rid of the infection before it has the chance to really harm your smile, so be sure to give us a call!

What is the best way to replace missing teeth?

While this answer is different from patient to patient, for most people looking to close the gaps in their smiles, I would highly recommend dental implants. Compared to every other replacement, they offer the most natural-looking, reliable, and durable results by far. You can get them right here at TrueCare Dentistry, and unlike other offices, we can complete the entire procedure in-house for maximum convenience.

Why are root canals so painful?

This is actually a misconception! Root canals are used to treat teeth that have developed an infection around their delicate nerve, which as you can imagine, causes quite a bit of discomfort. A root canal is actually a relatively comfortable procedure that enables me to RELIEVE this kind of dental pain, not cause it! Many people confuse the pain stemming from the initial infection with the procedure itself.

Will you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, and we are in-network providers with most major PPO insurance plans. We’ll make the process of maximizing your benefits nice and easy at every appointment. To learn how we can use your particular plan to help you save, contact us today.

Can I finance my dental care?

Yes, and you can qualify for a low-to-no interest payment plan with CareCredit right through our website. They have a variety of different plans that are designed to work with any budget, and you can learn more about them by clicking on the link on our Patients Information page.
