DENTAL FAQS

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I VISIT MARVEL DENTAL?

The American Dental Association and the team at Marvel Dental recommend twice a year visits in order to achieve and maintain your healthiest smile and prevent most common oral health issues.

WHAT IS PERIODONTAL DISEASE?

Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common oral health concerns affecting more than half of US adults over 30. The disease begins mildly when bacteria and plaque buildup at the gum line causes irritation and bleeding gums. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to a number of more advanced oral health issues including tooth loss.

SHOULD I BE SCREENED FOR ORAL CANCER EVEN IF I DON’T SMOKE?

Absolutely. 25% or more of oral cancer sufferers do not engage in any of the risky behaviors commonly associated with the disease, and early diagnosis is essential in offering successful treatment.

We offer both in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening that provide predictable results up to ten shades brighter.
