FAQs About Dentistry in Old Bridge, NJ

At Empire Dental Group, we believe in keeping our patients informed about their oral health and the dental services we provide. Below, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you better understand dentistry, our practice, and how to maintain your oral health.

What is dentistry?

Dentistry is the branch of medicine dedicated to the care of teeth, gums, and the entire oral cavity. Dentists like Dr. Alla Pavlushkin are trained professionals who diagnose, treat, and prevent oral health issues to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile.

What should patients look for when choosing a dentist?

When selecting a dentist, it's essential to consider several factors:

  • Educational Background: Review your dentist's educational background and experience to ensure their qualifications meet your needs.
  • Patient-Centered Care: Look for a dentist who values your comfort and well-being. A clean and comfortable office setting, as well as effective communication, are crucial.

Why is visiting the dentist so important?

Regular visits to our Old Bridge, NJ dental office are vital for preventive care. Dr. Pavlushkin and our team not only solve problems but can also prevent them. Routine checkups help identify issues early, preventing them from becoming more severe and costly to treat.

How can I maintain oral health between visits to Empire Dental Group?

To maintain good oral health, it is recommended to:

  • Brush Thoroughly: Brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque and food particles.
  • Floss Daily: Flossing between teeth daily helps remove plaque from areas your toothbrush can't reach.

Do I need to see the dentist if I have braces?

When you have braces or Invisalign®, regular dental visits are crucial. Brackets and wires make it easier for food to get trapped, leading to the formation of bacteria and plaque buildup. Routine dental checkups ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy throughout orthodontic treatment.

What's involved in the first dental visit?

During your initial visit to Empire Dental Group, you can expect a comprehensive examination. Our Old Bridge dentist will assess your teeth, gums, and jaw, often accompanied by X-ray findings. Afterward, our skilled hygienist will clean your teeth, leaving your smile refreshed.
