Look it over, and if you still have something you’d like to ask us, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
How often should I visit the dentist?
This answer will differ from person to person based on their particular needs, but for most, we would recommend attending at least two checkup and cleaning appointments each year. These services enable our team to treat minor issues before they can turn into big problems, plus professional cleanings can go a long way in preventing cavities from developing in the first place.
Can I bring my child to Salvaggio Dentistry?
Yes! We’re able to treat patients of all ages in Brampton, including any growing smiles you might have at home. We can provide age-appropriate services for toddlers and teenagers and everyone in between, and our team will always go out of their way to ensure your child has a comfortable visit to the dentist.
What is my best option to replace my missing teeth?
This really depends on your specific situation, but often, our first recommendation for tooth replacement is dental implants. They are the one treatment that restores an entire tooth both above and below the gum line, creating the most stable and natural-looking result possible. We can use them to replace any number of teeth, and they can easily last for a lifetime. To learn more about implants and what they could do for you, contact us today.
I’m in a lot of dental pain. What should I do?
Take an OTC medication, apply a cold compress to your face, and give Salvaggio Dentistry a call right away. Our team will give you first-aid tips over the phone so you can get control of the situation, and we can schedule an emergency appointment for you right away—preferably the same day that you call in!
What is the best way to improve how my smile looks?
If you’re dealing with noticeable stains, chips, cracks, or gaps, then we can take care of them all at the same time with porcelain veneers. Thin restorations are placed over the front of the teeth, and they can easily give you the kind of smile you frequently see in movies or on TV. We also have a selection of other cosmetic treatments that can enhance your smile’s appearance in a wide variety of ways, and you can contact us today to see which ones might be best for you.
Will you accept my insurance?
Salvaggio Dentistry accepts most dental insurance. To learn how we can use your particular plan to help you save at your next dental visit, contact us today.
