Frequently Asked Dental Questions
Many patients who come to our office have specific dental concerns for complex oral health problems. Read answers to common oral health questions that our dental office receives here:
What can I do if I have dental fear or anxiety?
At Morris Family Dentistry, we make our office as comfortable as possible for all patients. We have massage chairs, pillows, and blankets for our patient’s comfort. Our friendly and compassionate dentists and office staff want patients of all ages to feel welcome. If you or a loved one have severe dental fear or anxiety, contact our dental office so we can accommodate you.
Can I replace all of my missing teeth?
Yes, patients who have anywhere from a single missing tooth to all of their teeth missing can visit our dental office for restorative dental services. For patients with arches of missing teeth, we recommend dentures. Dentures that are secured by dental implants offer a longer-lasting result.
Does your office provide emergency dental services?
Contact Morris Family Dentistry if you have a dental emergency. Dental emergencies are often sudden and painful injuries or accidents that affect the smile. Our dentist office often sees patients with knocked-out permanent teeth and severe tooth pain. We can also repair or replace broken dental bridges, dental crowns, dentures, and dental fillings.
Can you remove old dental fillings?
Yes, Dr. Morris is trained in the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART). This technique is used to remove old metal fillings that typically contain mercury, a harmful neurotoxin. When a significant amount of mercury accumulates in the body, it can cause mood swings, headaches, and even kidney problems. Dr. Morris and his dental team take precautions to prevent mercury inhalation during filling removal. White composite fillings are a safe alternative to amalgam fillings, and also blend in with the look of the natural smile!
