Q: What is the best tooth replacement option for me?

You can get a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges. Our dentists can explain your possible choices and help determine the best one for you. For the tooth replacement option that offers the most long-term support, consider dental implants. We offer several different types of implant procedures, including ones in which you can receive implants and replacement teeth in a single appointment.

Q: How do I know if I have gum disease?

Gum disease sometimes isn’t noticed until it becomes severe, putting your teeth at risk. Because of this, it’s important to see us every six months for regular cleanings and exams. We can catch gum disease before it progresses. Also, see us if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • red gums
  • swollen gums
  • tender, bleeding gums
  • receding gumline
  • loose or shifting teeth

We offer safe and effective gum disease treatment. We can repair receding gums with the innovative Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Unlike traditional gum grafts, no stitches or sutures are needed.

Q: How can I improve the appearance of my smile?

You can get a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of your smile. For a quick, dramatic change, consider dental veneers or teeth whitening. These options can give you big changes right away. For more subtle but still striking improvements, consider gum recession therapy or dental bonding. You can combine cosmetic and/or restorative dentistry solutions for a total smile makeover.

Q: Can I get dental sedation?

Most of our patients can receive intravenous (IV) sedation for lengthy or complicated procedures, or for any treatment you’re nervous about. Dr. John Argeros is a past president of the Massachusetts Dental Society of Anesthesiology, and he’s been using IV sedation during dental procedures since 1977. Our other dentists are experienced in using IV sedation, too. Call 978-705-6051 to find out more.
