Ask Your Naples Dentist

Have a question about your dental care? Tired of wasting time on the internet sifting through information that has nothing to do with your situation? You can get all the dental knowledge you need from Dr. Hoop here at Total Dental Solutions. He’s always happy to talk to patients and share whatever knowledge they need to achieve their best smiles. Below, he’s gone ahead and answered some of our most frequently asked dentistry questions, but you’re always welcome to give us a call if you want to know more about something we haven’t covered here!

What Can You Do to Improve the Look of My Smile?

Quite a bit! I can provide a wide array of cosmetic solutions that can improve the shape, size, color, and spacing of the teeth, and I also offer restorative treatments to repair and replace broken/missing teeth. The possibilities are endless, and the right approach really depends on your unique goals. I can help you figure out which treatments would be right for you at an in-person consultation.

How Can You Repair My Damaged Teeth?

It really depends on the type and extent of the damage. For a minor cavity, I can likely use a tooth-colored filling to fix it in a single appointment. If a tooth is completely broken or mostly decayed, I may choose to rebuild it with a crown. And, for teeth that are damaged beyond the point of repair, I can extract them and provide custom replacements using treatments like dental implants. Give us a call today to see which service might be best for you!

What Is the Best Way to Replace My Missing Teeth?

In general, I would highly recommend dental implants to any patient who is interested in replacing their missing teeth. In addition to being the strongest and most natural-looking restoration available today, implants also support the jawbone and facial structures to prevent bone loss and help a patient maintain a more youthful appearance. As a periodontal specialist, I can provide all phases of implant care in my Naples dental office to help patients rebuild their smiles as effectively and seamlessly as possible.

Can You Restore My Oral Function?

Yes, I can provide treatments that repair damaged teeth, replace missing teeth, and properly align the bite so speaking and chewing feel much more comfortable. With a treatment known as a full-mouth reconstruction, I can combine several procedures to completely renew the function and appearance of the teeth at the same time. This is typically recommended for more complex cases where the patient has several ongoing dental issues.

What Are My Options For Straightening My Teeth?

I can provide traditional metal braces, Incognito braces, FastBraces, Six Month Smiles, as well as Invisalign. Which one would be right for you? I can let you know after examining your teeth at a consultation.
