Frequently Asked Questions

How can I prevent gum disease?

Gum disease is easily prevented with regular dental hygiene at home, including brushing for two minutes, at least twice a day (though after each meal is better) and flossing daily. In addition to good hygiene, visiting your dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months is important for keeping gum disease at bay.

Can adults get dental sealants, too?

Yes! While we usually recommend dental sealants for children, who especially benefit from cavity prevention, dental sealants can provide needed help for adults who are at a higher risk of tooth decay, too.

Do you offer adult braces?

Dental Serenity of Manhattan is pleased to offer two options in orthodontic treatment: traditional metal braces and Invisalign, clear braces for adults and teens. Both use the same orthodontic principles to realign teeth, but Invisalign does so without visible hardware.

Do root canals hurt?

There’s no doubt about the fact that root canals have a reputation of being extremely painful, but the truth is they’re nothing to fear from the treatment thanks to options in anesthesia and sedation. The most pain you are likely to feel is in the lead up to the treatment, while your tooth is still infected and aching.

What kind of sedation do you offer?

For patients who need a little help relaxing at the dentist, we offer nitrous oxide sedation. Also known as laughing gas, it helps you to feel comfortable (and maybe even happy!) during your dental treatment.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Many patients are eligible for dental implants. If your tooth loss is recent and you are in good oral and overall health, chances are good that you are, too. Schedule an appointment to find out for sure.

I’m unsatisfied with the appearance of my front teeth. Can you help?

Dr. Chang offers a number of cosmetic treatments for Manhattan, NY and Greater New York patients. The one that is right for you depends on your smile, budget, and your personal goals.
