Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any questions about what you can expect at Advanced Dental Solutions of Pittsburgh or the services we offer? Don’t hesitate to contact our team! Dr. Rairigh wants all of his patients to have the knowledge they need to make confident, well-informed decisions about their dental care. Below, you’ll find some of the FAQs we hear most often and their answers for easy access:
What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?
Dental implants are the clear choice, as they provide a comprehensive, revitalizing result that isn’t found in more traditional options like bridges and dentures. Implants rebuild every part of the natural tooth, including the well-hidden root, which results in improved health, excellent function, seamless aesthetics, and long-lasting durability.
Dr. Rairigh understands that implants might not be the right option for every patient. He will be happy to help you explore your options and find the one that is the ideal fit.
I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another way to straighten teeth?
Yes! We offer an in-house clear aligner system that can correct crooked teeth and gaps without any wires or brackets. The aligners are customized, subtle, and removable when needed. Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are also available options that are much more aesthetically pleasing than traditional orthodontics.
I feel nervous when going to the dentist. Can you help?
Definitely. Dr. Rairigh has undergone advanced sedation dentistry training through DOCS, and he can alleviate your dental phobia with safe, effective techniques. Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation can both create a genuinely relaxed atmosphere where patients can receive treatment smoothly.
Can you help me improve my smile’s appearance?
Of course! Dr. Rairigh’s cosmetic skill is known all over the Pittsburgh area, and he offers a wide variety of services that are designed to enhance the aesthetic value of teeth and gums. Possible options include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, direct bonding, metal-free restorations, and more. He can also help patients plan comprehensive smile makeovers that will lead to the desired results they have in mind.
Do you have evening hours?
Yes. We know how difficult it can be to squeeze dental care in during the working day – that’s why we’re open until 8:00pm on Mondays and Thursdays! Contact us today to schedule a first visit.
