Frequently Asked Questions

Professional teeth whitening in Huntsville, AL means allowing our prescription-strength whitening gel to penetrate your tooth enamel and break down stain molecules. While this can create tooth sensitivity at times, it does nothing to harm your teeth and has a long track record of safety. Additionally, Dr. Brian Cook will not prescribe a teeth whitening treatment unless your oral health suggests a safe whitening experience. Woman smiling after teeth whitening in Huntsville

It’s important to remember that tooth sensitivity is temporary, but you reduce the likelihood of sensitivity by following the instructions provided by our dental office and not using over-the-counter products. When you use store-bought systems, you are not under the discretion of a dental professional. And the treatment may be abrasive and lead to tooth sensitivity.

At Twickenham Family Dentistry, your root canal in Huntsville, AL will take some time to complete, but it will not be especially painful.Woman getting root canal in Huntsville al

Painful root canals are the ones performed when the patient has an active root infection. In our dental office, our Huntsville, AL dentist, Dr. Brian Cook, addresses the infection before beginning your root canal therapy. During therapy, you can let Dr. Cook know if you are uncomfortable, and he will address the problem immediately.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a tooth-saving treatment performed on a root-infected tooth. Your Huntsville, AL dentist makes sure the area is numb, and then he removes the infected root and pulp. He follows this therapy with an antibacterial agent to promote healing and a temporary filling to close off the area. At your next appointment, Dr. Cook may recommend a tooth crown in Huntsville, AL if the root infection compromised the stability of your tooth.

A dental crown is a cover that fits over an existing tooth. It is shaped and shaded to match your surrounding teeth, absorbs bite impact, and allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without worry.

Prevention dentistry is a multi-pronged approach to optimal oral health over the long-term, and dental x-rays in Huntsville, AL play an essential role.

Preventive dentistry includes a great oral health routine at home—generally brushing and flossing twice daily and reducing sugar and acidic intake through foods and drinks. Additionally, you should see your dentist twice per year for exams, cleanings, and x-rays as needed.  These recommendations also reflect guidelines put forward by the American Dental Association.

At Twickenham Family Dental, we take x-rays to allow your Huntsville, AL dentist to see between teeth, the area where most cavities begin. And our x-rays are designed to spot small problems before they become costly or painful issues down the line—including deep cavities, root infections, oral infections, and dental emergencies.

In our Huntsville, AL dental office, we implement digital sensors that emit minimal radiation to ensure our patient's safety, and we only take x-rays as needed.

A preventive dentistry schedule in Huntsville that includes digital x-rays is your best course of action for a lifetime of healthy teeth.

We encourage you to schedule your dental exam today.
