The most common FAQs from our clients:
view all FAQs
Is the initial consultation free?
Yes. At Gioia Dental Surgery the initial assessment visit is free of charge. After assessing the patient’s oral health, we give them an accurate diagnosis at no cost.
If I smoke, can I wear dental implants?
Yes, but beware: the success rate in smokers is only around 65% ten years after procedure, in comparison with 98.3% for non-smoking patients. Extensive research has shown that smoking habits represent an increased risk of implant failure/loss over the years.
How long will my dental implants last?
Medical research states that once osseointegration (i.e. the fusion of bone to implant) has taken place, dental implants can last for many years subject to multiple factors such as the patient’s overall health, oral hygiene, regular check-ups, anatomical variations, and proper rehabilitation treatment. In a nutshell, the implant lifespan will mainly depend on two factors: a) Oral hygiene: if not carried out daily and thoroughly, infections may occur, which will lead to bone mass reduction, causing implant removal. b) Bone mass quality and quantity: a healthy diet is also essential to maintain and improve bone mass and bone quality standards.
What is composite?
Dental composite is a type of acrylic resin mixed with ceramic particles that, when exposed to powerful halogen light, hardens into the solid filling similar to a natural tooth.
Will you have to grind down my teeth to bond the composite veneers?
No, no grinding is required on the patient’s natural teeth.
Are there food restrictions after professional teeth whitening?
Avoid drinking coffee, tea, red wine, deep coloured soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Fanta, etc.) and fruit juices, and eating red meats, tomatoes, carrots, dark chocolate, and sauces like mustard or ketchup.
What is the difference between teeth whitening at the surgery and at home?
Our whitening process involves applying a highly concentrated bleaching agent, and using a cold LED light to activate this solution. Gums are also protected with a special covering. Another alternative is to whiten teeth at home, always under the dentist’s supervision. The bleaching agent for home teeth whitening is carbamide peroxide in different concentrations. The patient is supplied with a take-home whitening kit that includes custom-mouth trays to be filled with whitening gel.
Why do we lose our teeth?
The most common causes of tooth loss are periodontitis (gum disease) and tooth decay.
Am I too old for orthodontic treatment?
There is no upper limit for starting treatment. However, it will always depend on the patient’s condition. Our orthodontist will determine when—or if—it’s best to start so as to achieve the best results as quickly as possible.
What is tooth decay? At what age does decay occur?
Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease. Tooth decay, aka dental caries, is an infection or a breakdown of teeth due to bacteria activity in the mouth. These microbes break down sugars into acidic by-products that destroy tooth enamel, resulting in cavities. Primary teeth are at highest risk for tooth decay because enamel and dentine are much thinner. Teeth are most prone to decay when they first erupt, hence the importance of proper oral hygiene as soon as they start to come out. The longer it takes to start a dental hygiene routine, the more likely a child is to develop tooth decay.
