Your Questions

Patients often have many questions regarding their dental treatment.  Listed below are some of the most common questions our patients have been curious about.  If you have a question not answered in the list below, please call us.

What are the different ways that I can improve my smile?

Your smile can be dramatically improved with porcelain crowns or veneers, implants and orthodontic work, all of which is available through the skills of Dr. Farian.

What are porcelain crowns?

A porcelain crown is a custom-made sheath that covers the tooth surface, restoring the tooth to its original size and shape. A porcelain crown is placed to protect and strengthen a tooth that has too much damage to be restored with a smaller restoration. Other reasons for porcelain crown placement can include purely cosmetic enhancement or if the tooth has been treated with root canal therapy.

What are porcelain veneers?

A veneer is a thin sheath of material, usually porcelain, which is bonded onto the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are custom made by dental technicians to achieve a nearly exact match to the color and shape of surrounding teeth. Veneers can be virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth, making them an excellent choice for cosmetic smile enhancement. To prepare a tooth for veneer placement, the tooth surface is lightly smoothed and shaped, and because very little tooth surface is actually removed, veneers are a very conservative solution to misshapen and discolored teeth.

What are dental implants?

For individuals who wish to replace missing teeth, dental implants may be an effective long-term solution. Implants provide greater structural support and last longer than either bridges or dentures. Implants serve as the artificial root to which new teeth are bonded. They are typically constructed of titanium, a strong and safe material that effectively attaches to bone. The procedure to insert dental implants typically involves three steps: the implant insertion stage, osseo-integration (the period of healing for the jawbone), and the attachment of the restoration or new tooth.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

An evaluation will need to be made by the doctor. Implant candidates are patients with missing or hopeless teeth, loose dentures, or root canals that have failed. The implant can provide a more permanent solution to bridges.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

An evaluation by the doctor will need to be completed, including diagnostic work, such as dental radiographs and models, in order to make a determination.

Back To Top

When is the best time to start orthodontic care on my child?

Typically, orthodontic work can start when children have their full complement of adult teeth, usually around 10 to 12 years of age. However, intervention may be required at a younger age if a child loses teeth too early. If this is the case, space maintainers or other appliances may be considered.

Back To Top

What is a root canal?

A root canal, referred to in dentistry as an endodontic procedure, is the treatment involving removal of the dead or dying nerve of a tooth. The procedure results in the discontinuance of pain and swelling, while still retaining the tooth. Root canal therapy can be a welcome alternative to tooth extraction to eliminate the source of dental pain.

Back To Top

What level of discomfort should I expect from root canal, extraction, and implant surgery?

The amount of discomfort will vary depending on the level of complexity of the procedure performed and can vary from very mild to severe. Proper pain medication and/or antibiotics are prescribed to alleviate the discomfort.

Why do my gums bleed when I brush or floss my teeth?

Gingivitis, or gum inflammation, commonly occurs when bacteria is allowed to form and colonize, especially in between teeth. Occasionally, if a patient has not had a dental cleaning recently or is not very regular with personal oral hygiene, bleeding during brushing or flossing can occur. If you notice consistent bleeding of your gum tissue, it is important to visit your dental professional. You could be showing early evidence of a slightly more serious condition called periodontal disease.

Back To Top

How often should I see the hygienist?

The current recommendation is once every six months for general hygiene therapy, and once every three months for more involved periodontal therapy.

Back To Top

When should my child first see a dentist?

Children are easiest to treat and enjoy the visit more when they reach about 3-4 years old.

Back To Top

What do I do if I have an emergency when the office is closed?

In case of a dental emergency, please call the office at 440-526-9100. Your call will then be routed to the appropriate person to assist you.

Back To Top

What happens if my temporary crown breaks or comes off?

Usually a temporary crown will be fine until a permanent crown is cemented in 10 days to 2 weeks. However, in the rare cases where a temporary crown breaks or comes off, a new temporary crown can easily be fitted to replace it. Please call our office to schedule an appointment if you have problems with your temporary crown.

Back To Top
