Frequently Asked Questions

Patient education is an important priority for Dr. Kar and the Advanced Dental Care team. We want our patients to feel like fully informed partners in the oral healthcare process, not as though they’re simply along for a ride. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know in Allen, TX so that we can address the matter to your satisfaction. For added convenience, several of our most popular FAQs have been compiled below with their respective answers.

What is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a specialized area of dentistry that focuses on dental rehabilitation. This includes crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants. The ultimate goal of dental rehabilitation is to restore a person’s appearance and at the same time allow for fully functioning prosthetic teeth.

Does a Prosthodontist Receive Additional Professional Training?

Yes. A prosthodontist is a dental specialist who completed three additional years of training with a specific focus on teeth restoration and replacement.

Are Dental Implants the Best Option to Replace My Missing Teeth?

Many people are excellent candidates for dental implants. A dental implant can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. This is a popular and desirable option because dental implants look and function like natural teeth. Please talk with Dr. Kar about your teeth replacement options. Dental implants might be an excellent choice for you.

I’m Only Missing a Single Tooth at the Back of My Mouth. Is It Important to Replace It?

Each of your teeth serves an important purpose. Not only do teeth allow you to effectively chew, but each tooth holds the rest of your teeth in position. If one tooth is missing, your other teeth might slowly shift out of place. A missing tooth may also pose other potential problems, which can be explained to you by Dr. Kar during your consultation.

What is the Best Way to Prepare for My First Appointment?

If you are visiting Advanced Dental Care to learn about your prosthodontic options, the best way to prepare is to jot down your questions on a piece of paper prior to your first appointment. Dr. Kar welcomes your list of questions and concerns. An in-depth conversation is the best way to create an optimal treatment plan.

Is There a Specific Method for Taking Care of Dental Implants and Dentures?

It’s essential that you take excellent care of your dental implants and dentures, as well as all your natural teeth. When you’re in the office, Dr. Kar and our helpful team of dental professionals will provide you with tips and guidance. Taking care of prosthetic and/or natural teeth is neither difficult nor complex as long as you are aware of the best methods.
