Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I go to the dentist if I brush and floss regularly?
It’s great that you brush and floss regularly, but there are plenty of oral problems that can go unnoticed regardless. Plaque and tartar buildup can’t be removed by mere brushing alone, and the staff at Montgomery Family Dental Care performs deep cleanings during each general dentistry examination. These cleanings remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums before they can create problems in your gum line and teeth. When these problems are left unaddressed, they will result in tooth loss and other disorders.
Can Montgomery Family Dental Care see my child for his/her first children’s dentistry appointment?
Yes, we regularly see kids for their first children’s dentistry appointment. Our Marysville staff sees children around two or three years of age for their first dental visit. This is to allow all of their teeth to grow in. Our children’s dentistry staff is kind and patient, and we work hard to lessen the stress of the overall situation. Dr. Montgomery sees kids from two to eighteen for pediatric dental care.
What tooth replacement options does Montgomery Family Dental Care provide?
Dr. Katie Montgomery and her Marysville team have a variety of restorative dentistry replacements available. We fit patients for dentures and partials for a removable, easy-to-clean solution, and if you need more security, our crown and bridge therapy can fill the holes in your smile. State-of-the-art dental implant care can also be arranged! Dr. Montgomery wants to work with you to find the answer that addresses your needs.
I have a toothache. What should I do?
Contact us immediately. Toothaches are often a sign of a more serious problem, and if your pain is persistent, your body could be alerting you to an infection taking place beneath your enamel. Dr. Montgomery performs root canal therapy at her Marysville practice to mend your mouth before the infection spreads. Our staff wants to save your smile! It’s very important to call Montgomery Family Dental Care quickly, or you might end up losing a tooth. Once you have an infection, having a root canal is your only tooth-saving solution.
