Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Navigating dental needs and goals can be a complicated subject, and many of our patients understandably have questions about what to expect. For added convenience, the Innovo Dental & Implant Studio team has gathered many of our frequently asked dentistry questions and their answers below so that this information is more easily accessible. If you’ve already read through this page and cannot find what you’re looking for, please contact us in Tracy to speak with Dr. Rattan or a team member directly.

What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?

While every patient’s needs and priorities are different, Dr. Rattan strongly recommends dental implants as the best option available for seamlessly replicating the appearance, function, and overall durability of natural teeth. Implants are unique because they start by replacing the root of the tooth first, which establishes an enduring foundation for the restoration while also preserving jawbone health. The result? An attractive, stable smile addition that’s built to last for decades.

Will I need to see a separate specialist to have my dental implants placed?

Not at all! Dr. Rattan has completed hundreds of hours of advanced training in implantology, and he has both the clinical expertise and state-of-the-art technology needed to carry out every stage of your procedure, from the initial consultation to the placement of the finished, custom restoration(s). This comprehensive approach has several valuable benefits for the patient, including the added convenience and comfort that comes from being able to stay with a dental team you already know and trust.

I’m having a dental emergency! Can you help?

Of course. Dr. Rattan strives to accommodate both new and reoccurring patients in pain as soon as possible – in many cases, same-day emergency appointments are even available! Our team can address severe toothaches, fractures, dislodged teeth, and similar urgent situations, providing the advanced treatment solutions needed to help smiles successfully recover.

Can you improve my smile’s appearance?

Yes! Innovo Dental & Implant Studio has a comprehensive menu of services that includes several treatment options specifically designed to elevate the aesthetic value of teeth, from professional whitening to high-quality porcelain veneers to gum recontouring with a modern soft tissue laser. Dr. Rattan would be happy to help you determine the ideal cosmetic makeover for your specific goals during a one-on-one consultation in Tracy, CA.

Visiting the dentist makes me nervous. How can I relax?

Sedation dentistry (including nitrous oxide and oral medication) is available at our dental office. These calming techniques can go a long way towards soothing frazzled nerves and creating a more comfortable atmosphere for even the most extensive procedures, so be sure to ask our team if you’d like to take advantage.

Do you take dental insurance?
