If you have questions about oral health care, Dr. Kenneth Troutman has the expertise to provide you with the accurate, detailed information you need to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Below, we’ve included a list of the most common questions asked of our cosmetic dentist in Huntingburg, IN.
A. Twice daily is recommended by the American Dental Association. Depending upon the individual, this may be seen as a minimum. There are several factors that can contribute to a greater need to brush, for example, consuming several meals, sugary drinks, or having gum disease. You should also floss once per day.
A. Even if you brush and floss daily, it may not be enough to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque and bacteria can build up in places that you have missed. Scheduling a professional dental cleaning every six months allows us to remove hard deposits, keeping your teeth clean and healthy. During annual exams with our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Troutman can monitor your teeth and gums to ensure that any areas of concern can be treated early.
A. Bleeding gums are a sign of periodontal disease. If your gums are bleeding, you have an oral infection and should schedule an appointment with our dentist as soon as possible. Periodontal, or gum, disease can slowly destroy your smile. Additional symptoms include swollen or receding gums, sensitive teeth, bad breath, and loose or shifting teeth.
A. To replace a single tooth, Dr. Troutman recommends a dental implant. They are a permanent, natural-looking solution. For multiple teeth, there are even more options, such as implant supported dentures, All-on-4, and dental implants placed individually. Dr. Troutman has a great deal of experience with implant dentistry.
