Frequently Asked Questions

The thought of pursuing dental care can be overwhelming at times – that’s why the Southeastern Dental Care team wants to help by answering your questions. Check out our FAQs below to see the answers to the queries we get most often. If you don’t find the information you’re looking, please feel free to contact us here in Lakeville, MA and ask a staff member directly. We’re always happy to assist you!

How often should I come in for a checkup?

We typically recommend that patients of all ages visit the dentist twice a year, or once every six months. Some people – especially those suffering from moderate to advanced gum disease – may need more frequent visits to maintain their oral health. Our doctors will be sure to let you know if this is the case; otherwise, six-month visits allow us to catch potentially serious problems at their earliest, most harmless stages. Our goal is to help you avoid advanced, time-consuming treatment down the road.

How do you keep patients safe throughout the treatment process?

Our team proudly follows the strict guidelines that have been established by OSHA and the Center for Disease Control. For instance, we always use disposable gloves during your exam and we sterilize all of the instruments that are reusable in an autoclave. A team member also thoroughly disinfects each treatment room between patient visits.

What are my options if I’m missing one or more natural teeth?

There are several treatments available that can rebuild your complete, confident smile, including modern dental implants, fixed bridges, and full and partial dentures. Please visit our services page to learn more about these procedures, and feel free to ask Dr. Bui or Dr. Nguyen during your visit if you’d like to know which option would fit your unique needs best.

Crowns, veneers, partials…where can I learn more about these procedures?

You can review our services page for more information about various treatments. Then, if you have further questions, you can call us. Our staff is only too happy to discuss your dental care with you and schedule your appointments with our doctors.

How can I improve my smile?

That sounds like a simple question, but there are no easy answers! Your smile is special, so the best way to find the right answer is to schedule a consultation at Southeastern Dental Care. During this consultation, we’ll discuss porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, bonding, and more, exploring your goals and then crafting a plan to use various cosmetic or restorative dentistry techniques to meet them.
