Common Post-Op Questions
If you’re undergoing a dental procedure, you’ll need to take special care of your oral health afterward. Dr. Stroumpos will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for yourself following the procedure.
Specific instructions will vary depending on your procedure, so it’s best to follow the instructions given to you carefully. But it’s common to have questions about these instructions and it’s important to ask them so you can feel confident in your aftercare.
Some common questions include:
- How should I manage pain following my procedure?
- How long should I experience discomfort?
- Do I need to follow any special dietary guidelines?
- Is it safe for me to drink through a straw?
- Will I be able to drive myself home after my procedure?
- Will I need to take an antibiotic?
- Will I need to return to your office for a follow-up appointment?
- When will my permanent restorations be ready?
- How do I care for my removable prosthesis?
We urge you not to hesitate if you have any questions after caring for yourself post-op. Please feel free to call us by dialing 281-286-3838.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during a teeth cleaning?
During a teeth cleaning, your hygienist will thoroughly rid your teeth of any bacteria and plaque so you can have a bright, healthy smile. The cleaning begins with an exam of your oral health to check for cavities and gum infections.
Then, your hygienist will begin removing plaque and tartar by scraping it off before using a high-powered electric brush with special toothpaste that ensures the removal of any leftover tartar. After this, they’ll floss and rinse your mouth.
There may be more steps to your teeth cleaning depending on your unique situation.
What does cosmetic dentistry include?
Cosmetic dentistry includes any treatments that are meant to improve the appearance of your smile. While many other dental procedures do this alongside health treatment, cosmetic procedures are focused solely on your smile’s appearance.
These procedures include teeth whitening, dental veneers, and more. To learn about how Dr. Stroumpos can improve your smile, call our office at 281-286-3838.
When should I take my child to the dentist for the first time?
You should take your child to the dentist around the age of one, or after their first tooth erupts. While this may seem too early, taking your child to the dentist when they’re young can help them get used to being in the dental office.
At this first appointment, we won’t perform a cleaning. There may be a short exam, but the main purpose of a child’s first visit to the dentist is to familiarize them with the environment and for us to begin monitoring your child’s oral health so we can protect them from diseases.
What is orthodontics in dentistry?
Orthodontics is the practice of correcting malocclusion, or misaligned teeth. Orthodontists specialize in re-aligning your teeth so they look better, fit well together, and don’t cause oral health issues for you.
While it may seem like crooked teeth are merely a cosmetic issue, misaligned teeth can be the cause of many problems. These problems include TMJ issues, tooth decay in hard-to-reach areas, cracked teeth, and more.
