Questions and Answers
Ask us about cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry, oral surgery & more.
What toothpaste should I use?
We recommend using a fluoridated toothpaste. While most toothpastes are safe, many available on the market today can be harmfully abrasive. If you have questions about a toothpaste, we recommend looking for the seal of the American Dental Association (ADA) or simply asking us!
Do I really need to floss?
Yes, there is no getting around the need to thoroughly get around your teeth daily with dental floss. It clears plaque and food that is left behind that brushing alone cannot get.
Does a rinse or mouthwash help?
Mouthrinses are great for a variety of reasons, for example, cavity protection and prevention, fresh breath, and more. Children under the age of 6 should not use mouthwash to avoid the risk of them ingesting it.
What’s the best way to whiten my teeth?
The absolute best way to whiten your teeth is to visit a dental professional. Rosenberg Dental’s teeth whitening services are safe, reliable, and will actually whiten your teeth, unlike some at-home options.
Why do dentists administer dermal filler treatments?
There are many reasons why a dentist would administer dermal filler treatments and it can vary from patient to patient. For example, Dentists may recommend dermal filler treatments to a patient who is experiencing certain pain or tension in the maxillofacial muscles.
What insurance plans do you participate in?
We participate with Teamsters, MetLife, Delta Premiere, and CIGNA.
There are many other insurance plans that allow you to go to whatever dentist you want. However, some plans require you to go to a preferred provider. Call your insurance company prior to scheduling an appointment.
How often should I go to the dentist for professional cleanings?
Everyone should see their dentist at least every six months. Some individuals with other oral problems need to be seen more frequently. We have many patients who are seen every three or four months. This can only be determined by your dentist.
Why do root canal teeth need crowns?
A tooth that had a root canal needs to be restored properly. This is normally done with a crown, but in some instances, an onlay or a partial crown is sufficient to restore it. An endodontically treated tooth is more brittle, and if it is not fixed within a short period of time after having the root canal, it may break. We, therefore, recommend restoring the tooth within two weeks after completing the root canal.
